During a party at The View Night Club in St. Andrews, Jamaica it was noted that Lady Saw was talking about Macka Diamond. With an attempt to clarify her statements she said, “I ran out of the picture because I am not a hypocrite. Macka was once my friend but she hurt my feelings deeply and we are no longer friends. She has sent people to try to speak to me about it, but I will never be her friend again,” Saw said.
Lady Saw says that they were pretty close friends, and she was the one who attempted to further Macka's career when she first came out into the dancehall scene. She would bring Macka to shows with her although many people were against it.
“There was a time when no one wanted Macka on their shows, and I used to carry her and Queen Paula go everywhere and give them a chance to perform. I remember one time Bounty had a show over the golf course and I brought them on and they performed and afterwards, everyone blocked me out and never wanted to give me back the mic because they were upset that I carried them on the show, and people used to say ‘weh yu a go wid dem pap down artiste de?,” Saw explained.
"But I am a genuine bitch. If you’re my friend, I will give you my life. But I can’t take it when you say things behind my back, they used to come to my house and write songs and we hang out, Macka, Paula, Lady G and Queen Ifrica, and then one day when I invited them to my yard, she passed the comment that she nah go ah my yard fi eat mi obeah curried goat."
So my questions is - all of this over a statement about curry goat? Lawd, she sensitive!
“But with regards to the picture, that is true. I can never associate with Macka Diamond again, once you break my heart, you can never be my friend again.”
With that said, Lady Saw left a message after the 'beep' - I hope Macka get it.
“Stop calling my name ‘Saw’ in a good way. I see you saying big up Saw during your interviews and all that, but just stop it, cut it out.”
Saw said that her dislike for Macka Diamond was so strong she would never accept any help or encouragement from her. Never. “If me pap down, and she a reign, and if she was the only one to help me fi get back into the thing again, I would rather roll in the dirt with the s---t inna it than do that,” she said.
“I thought she was my friend and she hurt me, and I am heartbroken over the things that she said, so I would never want to pose with her in a picture.”
