In the ever challenging Ghanaian music market, it has always been difficult for an artiste to break through let alone make profit. From the development of concept, composing, recording, promoting and marketing the bottlenecks at each stage are just more than enough to make one give up.
For the ladies in the industry, it's even a non-starter as a result of the male dominance in almost all spheres. Of late however, the ladies have been making steady in rows in the various genres of Ghanaian Music.
However, the rap game has been the most slippery turf for the ladies and this is where the latest female to join the band wagon comes in. She is ENO. Born Ruth Nana Serwaa Nyame over 20years ago, she had her basic education at.
She continued her SHS at Methodist Day Secondary where she shared the classroom with Sarkodie, Stay J,Yaw Siki and Stone Boy and others. ENO read marketing at Kumasi Polytechnic ENO has been an entertainer for the most part of her life. As the Entertainment Prefect of her school, she took it upon herself to personally entertain her school mates culminating in the development of her rap talent.
In the very difficult to break through Ghanaian music market, ENO sees her love for what she does and the difference she brings as the main ingredients to her successful music carrier. The music background of her parents Rev. Abraham Osei Bonsu Nyame Adom a pastor and Mrs.
Rebecca Nyame Adom, a school proprietor, gradually developed her interest in and love for music.
ENO has for a long time been a huge fan of Missy Elliot and cherishes how she dispenses energy in her rap songs She bemoans the seemingly lack of women in the rap game hijacked by the males and says it's time for Dr. Aggrey's statement to be materialized.
ENO auditioned for TV3s Gang Starz but her journey into commercial music began on K FM's Freestyle Saturday where she murdered most of the male contestants with dazzling weekly performances. Though she placed fourth in the finals, she took consolation in the fact that she had made her case for ladies in the rap game.
Well aware that most contestants enjoy lots of fame during reality shows but are unable to maximize the opportunity after the competition, ENO zoomed into serious work right after Freestyle Saturday. Her first song was 'What's my name? She's now out with a banger 'My Love' in which she featured Afriyie formerly of Wutah. Her 10 track 'I'm Out' album of 10 songs has stints of hip hop, dancehall, contemporary Highlife and more.
Ghana should brace up for things to come. For more, check her up on ENO MUSIC on facebook.
