In response to not being nominated for this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, rapper Eno Barony has questioned the Charterhouse board of directors.
Eno has been nominated and honored at each VGMA awards ceremony since she started making music, causing her to question what she may have done differently to be overlooked this year.
Although she submitted two of her hit songs, Don’t Judge Me and Finish Line, the nominations were made public approximately a week ago, and she was not nominated in any of the roughly 20 categories.
She hoped to be nominated for Best Rapper/Song and Best Hip Hop Artist/Song, which is apparent categories she would have won given that they are related to her genre, according to Eno.
She made fun of the event in an interview with Doreen Avio on Hitz FM, saying, “I suppose the names of my song Don’t Judge Me played a role since I said they shouldn’t judge me and they didn’t therefore they took me out.”
“In the year under review, my songs did pretty well. Check the web charts; nearly all of my songs are at the top.
Normally, Eno wouldn’t share her displeasure, but she claimed that in the fight for herself and other female rappers, being loud is necessary.
She expressed disappointment that there was no female rapper nominated for this year’s award.
Despite this, the “Heavy Load” composer claimed that the board has been contacted by her management, who is merely asking for input.
Despite her disappointment, Eno vowed to put more effort into getting her work recognized in the following edition.
“Awards don’t make me who I am; Eno will always be Eno. Although it hurts, we all strive harder. I have worked hard and deserve recognition.
