Eno Barony: I had to lose weight before getting contracts

Speaking to Elvis Crystal on Rush Hour on Tuesday (28 June), Barony said: “At a point, I was asked to lose weight before I got performance and management contracts"

The award-winning Ghanaian female rapper Eno Barony has said she was forced to lose weight before getting performance and management contracts.

Speaking to Elvis Crystal on Rush Hour on Tuesday (28 June), Barony said: “At a point, I was asked to lose weight before I got performance and management contracts.”

“I don’t think being constantly bashed slowed me down. I think it made me nervous; I had to take a lot of things into consideration but it’s helped me mature. Everything is a blessing in disguise.

“I had to psyche myself to see that losing weight and wearing corsets weren’t worth it. I don’t think that a woman has to change her body just because she’s fat. So, now that I have the platform, I try to make women who look like me feel good,” Barony said.
