DANCEHALL artiste Macka Diamond has turned down Lady Saw's offer to perform alongside her during Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay, next week.

"Lady Saw has been directing various persons to call me to perform alongside her at Dancehall Night on Reggae Sumfest in the name of solidarity and unity, but she is yet to call me herself. I believe in unity in the industry, it would send a message that we can reconcile. Baby Cham did a song with Bounty Killer, Bounty Killer and Beenie Man did a song together after years of animosity, so Saw and I can have an understanding," said Macka Diamond.

However, Macka Diamond believes that the recent request to perform alongside Lady Saw could be just a publicity stunt to boost Saw's performance.

"I made my peace with Lady Saw a long time ago, long before she came around and made this peace offering. So for me, this is just the next step. But my God is a real God, and I cannot be part of any sham, or publicity stunt to help her performance at Sumfest. If this solidarity is real, she should call up all the females she has had run-ins with over the years to be a part of it...that would show true solidarity and unity," she said.

Reggae Sumfest is scheduled for Catherine Hall in Montego Bay, July 12 to 18.
