'Forty and Fabulous' singer Macka Diamond will make an appearance on IRIE FM's 'The Buzz' this Wednesday. Two days later, she will head to the UK to kick off her club tour.   


She will be performing in major clubs in London, Birmingham, Bristol and Bradford.
"My songs such as 'Ah Ya So Nice' and 'Cowfoot' have been doing well, and I have a song called Inna Di Club for some producers in London 
that is getting major play over there, and that song will be the basis for the tour and things are looking up now this Forty and Fabulous is taking off," she said.
The 'Bun Him' singer likened the initial response to Forty and Fabulous to the response to her mega hit, Bun Him featuring Blacka Ranks. 
“The other day, Big A played it for 15 minutes and disc jockeys from HITZ, ZIP, Bess FM, Links radio, Gary G, DJ Wayne, Liquid,
Sparks, Johnny Kool, everybody ah play it," she said. 
Now that the ‘Forty and Fabulous’ has been searing airwaves for the past few weeks, she is thinking about doing a video for the song.
 "When I get back from England, it will be the first thing on my agenda, shooting a video and I hope to get some of the male artistes in my age group
in the song as well," she said, laughing. 
The saucy single name-drops prominent male deejays such as Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, Elephant Man and even Vybz Kartel as examples of deejays who have reached an advanced age but are still relevant. The song, marketed through word of mouth, local shows, weekly street dances and social media efforts, has developed a lot of traction in recent days. And since the buzz began, Macka is feeling the love from peers and radio.
A number of leading artistes are 40 or pushing it: Shabba Ranks is 46, Beenie Man is 39, Bounty Killer is 40, Lady Saw is 44, Vybz Kartel is 36 and Elephant Man just turned 37 in September.
“And we are still the best artistes that dancehall has ever seen,” Macka Diamond said.
