Ghanaian female rapper, Ruth Eno Adjoa Amankwah Nyame Adom, popularly known as Eno Barony, has recounted how she nearly gave up on music some years ago.
In a lengthy post sighted by Zionfelix.net, the ‘Rap Goddess’ revealed she was not having the strength to continue her music career because she was hungry and heartbroken about six (6) years ago.
Eno said she announced her decision to quit music but she was motivated by Okyeame Quophi and his wife, Stacy Amoateng.
Talking about the challenges, Eno Barony recalled how she struggled to get clothes, lorry fares for interviews and shows.
The most heartbroken moment was when she lost her mother, who she depended on.
With determination and the help of God, Eno disclosed that she can now afford all the things she needs.
