Ghanaian female rapper, songwriter, and performer, Eno Barony has disclosed that her initial ambition was to become a broadcast journalist.
Born Ruth Eno Adjoa Amankwah Nyame Adom, Eno said that she became interested in pursuing the journalism profession when she was at a tender age (growing).
The 2021 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Best Rap Artiste told AJ Sarpong and Roland Walker in an interview on TV3 New Day that her journalism dream was influenced by astute Ghanaian Journalist and marketing communications person Roland Walker.
“Initially I wanted to be a journalist but growing up when people see me singing in church or rapping in school, everyone is like I have goosebumps, you are so talented and so entertainment kind of swayed me away,” she disclosed.
She said despite being born into music, she didn’t have an interest in pursuing music as her profession, however, people’s positive remarks about her performance in Church swayed her away from her original dream.
“I think I was born with music, music has been part of my whole life and I never thought I’ll be a musician even though music has been a part of my whole life,” she told the hosts of the show.
“Yeah I think so… I hosted a show for a year on Adom Fm. I did the Kasahari program on Adom,” she pointed out when she was asked whether she still intended to pursue journalism.
