Prolific Ghanaian female rapper and songwriter Eno Barony has narrated how her father, a Pastor, and church members prayed against her rap career.
Ruth Eno Adwoa Amankwah Nyame Adom, known as Eno Barony, stated that her picture was put before the church, and the Pastor(her father) and the church members prayed against her rap talent because they believed it was not of God.
She revealed this on Joy Prime during an exclusive interview with Asieduwaa Akumia on Friday, 18 November 2022.
She further stated that her father(the Pastor) and the church believed she was possessed and her music demonic.
“I remember they put my picture in the church and prayed over it that my music should not work and nothing should work for me.” Eno Barony said.
The one-time VGMA winner said the relationship between her and her dad is cool, though, in the beginning, it wasn’t easy.
Eno said she used to hide in the initial stages but could not continue hiding because she was getting popular. It became an issue, and she had to run from home.
The ‘God Is A Woman hitmaker mentioned Abrewa Nana and Mzbel as people who influenced her music career. Although she could not listen to secular music at home, she had always wanted to be a rapper.
Eno concluded by urging the public not to judge secular musicians by their appearance because everyone is different in their way.
Eno Barony won Best Rap Performance at the 22nd VGMA awards in 2021. Some of her most popular songs are God is a Woman, Heavy Load, King of Queens, and others.
