Dancehall celebrity D'Angel issued a release to the media this week saying that she will continue to perform on stage shows publicly for the next few months, after getting the go-ahead from her paediatrician.
"After three months, everything is sealed, the doctors said that I should take it easy as with any woman having her first child, but that I can continue to work. Anyway, mi nah run no marathon onstage, I just need to control mi movements, so there is no danger to the baby," she told YardFlex.Com on Saturday.
She performed at Richie Pooh's 13th anniversary show in Miami, Florida last week where Beenie Man and Sizzla were the headline acts. And she intends to perform alongside Beenie Man at stage shows over this weekend.
"I have shows leading straight up through the Summer, both local and overseas, my pregnancy is a life inside of me makes me but it makes me twice as strong...in fact, mi badder onstage, Beenie say me even a work better, I am growing, it's just natural," she said.
The child, which will be D'Angel's first and Beenie Man's seventh, may be due some time in October. D'Angel intends to buck a trend which has often hobbled the careers of female deejays once they get pregnant in Jamaica where they are sometimes unfairly discriminated against by male producers and promoters.
A few weeks ago, she had told a YardFlex reporter that she had intended to take a break after her pregnancy reached an advanced stage.
"After my baby, I will be right back, I am not taking an extended break (after the baby's birth). Right now, I am recording my album, I already did my collaborations for 'Undisputed', and I have a couple of videos to do soon, and in the meantime, I'll still be recording songs in the studio, just no shows for now," she was quoted as saying.
