Dancehall artiste Macka Diamond thinks the publicised split between peer Beenie Man and motivational speaker Krystal Tomlinson is a publicity stunt.
The Pink Pearl singjay shared her opinion on Instagram Live after being asked about it by A’mari ‘DJ Mona Lisa’.
“I think so, that is what I honestly think,” she said. “For me, the love weh mi did see between Krystal and Beenie – and Beenie seemed ready to settle and he found a very intelligent woman who was putting him in the right direction – mi nuh see him a lef har.”
“Mi think dem a go get back together; a suh relationships stay, it have its ups and downs.”– Macka Diamond
Publicity stunts aren’t new to the dancehall space. ‘The Doctor’ has an upcoming album entitled Simma which could benefit from a boost in his visibility, while Tomlinson’s “political buzz” has dwindled since she lost her bid for West Rural St Andrew’s Member of Parliament-elect. But statements made by the former item give no indication that the split was staged for publicity purposes.
If it’s not a stunt, Macka has no doubt that they will reconcile.
“Mi think dem a go get back together; a suh relationships stay, it have its ups and downs,”she said. “A just because people business a come out inna the media more often now but a whole heap a people go through weh Beenie and Krystal go through…”
Macka has been accused of employing some publicity tactics too, from the recent online feud with blogger Pretti Don to an explicit photo with comedian Majah Hype first published years ago. But the entertainer said she has never pulled stunts in her career.
“If somebody seh me do publicity stunt I don’t think it is that,” she said. “I do promotion towards my songs, my albums, whatever, so sometimes you might see somebody doing a promotion and dem run wid it and seh, ‘A dat and dat’.”
