It was an excited Macka Diamond, who launched her new book, The Real Gangster’s Wife, at Club Moulin Rouge, Constant Spring Road, last night.
The ‘money goddess’, who was more than two hours late to the launch, was greeted with smiles as she strolled into the venue with Captain Barkey by her side. And, when she eventually spoke, the joy she felt from publishing a second book, the first being Bun Him, was obvious.
“This has been a more up close and personal thing. Part two is already ready, that’s how serious it is. We thinking about even the movie. This one nah bun nobody. We nuh write it bout nobody, but this book is real. A whole heap a sumpten happen,” she said laughing.
more life, more livity
“This is is my second career. When mi get bokkle pon two stage show mi can just sell two book. Dem say diamonds are forever and I will be here forever. More books, more life, more livity.”
She also joked that roles in the movie would be filled by Ishawna and her beau Foota Hype, who read excerpts from the book together, and also Lady G. In addition, she said her movie Redemption To Paradise will be shown at the Reggae Film Festival next week.
After reading, Lady G seemed like quite the supportive friend, as she said, “congratulations Macka, big-up yourself, you look like a real businesswoman.”
Dancer Mystic and upcoming artiste G Whizz also read from the book. There were also many persons ‘blessing up’ Macka Diamond on her efforts.
Prior to speaking, Macka Diamond was surrounded by people wanting to look at or take pictures of the cake, which had a photo of the book on it. Eventually she got the opportunity to cut it with one of her fans.
After the formal launch was complete, books were sold and Macka Diamond was ready to sign them.
