Macka Diamond defends using oral sex promo pics and plans to release more oral sex songs
Popular Dancehall star, Macka Diamond showed in her recent hit song, Dye Dye that she is not afraid to test the waters when it comes to content. However, the deejay is now riding a tidal wave of controversy caused by her follow-up single, Twist Me thanks to a few promotional pictures that have brought one of Jamaica’s most controversial issues to the forefront.
On Friday, two leaked pictures emerged on several entertainment websites with what appeared to be a lingerie-clad Macka Diamond receiving oral sex from a man on a kitchen counter and a sofa. The promotional pictures, which can be seen here, caused a social media firestorm, with many Twitter and Facebook users blasting Macka Diamond for pushing such imagery to the public.
Over the weekend, Macka Diamond confirmed that the leaked photos were pictures promoting the upcoming video for Twist Me, which was shot prior to departing for her Bun Him Part 2 book tour. However, the deejay insists she was not the person who leaked the photos to the public.
She told the Jamaica STAR, "We did two versions of the video, one for TV and one for Internet purposes. I shot the video because I knew I was leaving,” Basically, a lot of the camera people were told not to leak the pictures. We didn't expect anybody to leak the pictures. We didn't need to send out any pictures before 'cause the video would speak for itself.”
The pictures have once again brought the issue of oral sex in Jamaica to the forefront. With many still considering it a taboo act, particularly when men give it, the backlash for Macka Diamond’s was perhaps to be expected. However, the deejay says she is leading the charge for women who like receiving oral sex, while also claiming many of her critics are hypocrites given some of them praised Vybz Kartel’s controversial song, Freaky Gal, which highlighted women are willing to give such pleasure.
"We haffi defend the women part of it,” she told the STAR. “You have females out there who love to get it. Is just hearing things on the road and just balancing the thing. It's hypocrisy. You have to have someone who can stand up for the women.”
Meanwhile, Macka plans to release more sexually-charged songs in the near future, including the song, My Body Calling, which was produced by Elvis Redwood.
The video for Dye Dye continues to garner international attention, copping well over 100,000 YouTube views since its release in May, despite restrictions being slapped on the raw version of the video due to its raunchy visuals. According to the veteran entertainer, she is very content with her recent run of form.
"I feel good because a lot of people are looking at age. It just proves that it is not about who old or young or looks, but who is making hits, making good music,” she told the STAR.” I am really proud of me. I continue to prove myself that diamonds are forever and I am a talented artiste."
