Macka says that Lady Saw did take her to shows trying to help Macka maneuver her way into the business, but she did it with resent and seemed unenthusiastic.
Which is the worst! Can you imagine asking someone for a favor, they say yes, but have on a screw face for the ENTIRE time. I can't stand it. Never mind then. BITCH!
"She carried me and Paula on two shows, one overseas and one here (JA), and then she didn't do anymore with us. I had heard that some people believed that we were lame artistes, but I never said anything back to her because I knew she was under pressure at the time. But through the grace of God, I got my buss in the business," she said.
"I called her crying one night because I was frustrated, and what did she tell me 'some of us lucky and some just don't'. After, I had to call Lady G, and G say 'Macka yu a bad artiste, wah yu a deal wid, dont give up', mi ah go voice yu pon mi riddim and ah dat song mi go bank and borrow $100,000 to shoot the video for. Saw had a song on the riddim too and we wanted to do a medley and I had to beg her like a dawg just to come to the music video," she said.
Hahaha, I can't even be mad at Saw because if you don't think someone has potential, people don't want to be affiliated with you. It's a problem because that was her friend. What could you do?
And as far as the curry goat goes...
"Saw no normally cook curried goat, ah fish, ah better she did say 'obeah fish', ah just some strife she ah build up fi bridge my energy. I have no problems with Saw, I have always admired her as an icon, but the way she cut off our friendship was a bit strange. If you have a friend, and your friend does something wrong, don't you give that friend a chance to make it up if the friendship meant anything. "
"Mi nah go say mi never chat Saw or run two jokes, but it is something most people do, and I never said anything malicious or cruel, or else mi sure yu woulda hear it back already. Mi never do her no big thing like sleep wid her man or diss her. Mi never chat Saw the way she mek it seem and the thing is Tanya Stephens did call mi and warn me say 'Saw soon call you and say you a chat her too' and mi did laugh and dismiss Tanya. And then it happen, and mi stop laugh," she said.
"All I know is that life is too short and it takes too much energy to hate a person, so I have no animosity towards Lady Saw, if the friendship is over, ah just that, I can't do anymore."
Macka was so mature about this. Gwaan yah my girl!
