Eno: Size Does Not Matter

She is one of the few surviving female rap musicians in Ghana, sensational Eno does not see the plus size of her body as an obstacle that will hinder her from matching up to the other rap artistes who are not so body-endowed.

“I know it is perceived that my kind of music or rapping is for those who are not as big as I am judging from the energy a rapper needs to make an impact on stage when performing.

“But I am not an idle person, I exercise a lot and I am very health conscious. Before I go on stage, I rehearse, check my breathe control and then unlock all the energy I need to make my performance look good.” she told Showbiz on Tuesday.

“If I say I want to listen to what people are saying about my body size and wait to slim before I do music then I’m sure I would be dead by the time I come out with my first single. I do not need the permission of anybody to do what I have been blessed to do and who says rap music is for only those who are slim?

Eventhough most of the ladies in Ghana who are pursuing secolar music are slim and cute, Eno does not see that as a challenge looking at the size of her body.

“I do not have a problem with the fact that most of the ladies I find myself doing secular music with are slim and I say this because, I have reached a point in my life where I tell myself that the size of my body should not determine what I do”.

Responding to whether other female artistes do not intimidate her when she is on the same bill with them, she said; “not at all, whenever I have to perform, what matters to me is how to entertain my fans and that is what I work at and I make sure I make my fans happy after every performance.”

“Moreover, I have a fan base that love and admire my kind of music and to me that is what matters. I do not care what others think, the bottom line is I love who I am, I love myself and I do not wish to be someone else” she said.

The Kumasi based rapper who has been rapping for almost a decade also had a word for people who describe her as fat. “I do not see myself as a fat person. I would describe myself as someone who is well endowed in all aspects of my body and I do not wish to change who I am.

Born Ruth Nana Serwaa Nyame, Eno had her secondary education at Methodist Secondary in Tema where she shared the classroom with Sarkodie, Stay J,Yaw Siki, Stonebwoy and others. Eno read marketing at Kumasi Polytechnic.

She is known for songs like My Love which featured Afriyie formerly of Wutah, I'm Out, pull me out, Tonga(Cover), ‘What’s My Name, Chain of Love, Commot For There and many more.
