Rappers shy away from collabs because of unnecessary comparisons- Eno Barony

Published

on

Award-winning Ghanaian rapper, Eno Barony has blamed the lack of rapper-to-rapper collaborations on unnecessary comparisons.

The rapper, who has constantly shown her rapping prowess in a field dominated by men stated in a recent interview that rappers shy away from collaborations with other rappers.

“I’ve not really featured a lot of rappers because a lot of rappers kind of shy away from featuring their co rappers especially me being a girl,” she stated.

According to Eno, singers are able to collaborate freely without any chance of music listeners trying to pick who sang the best, however, same cannot be said for rappers.

“Most at times there is a comparison when it comes to rap but two singers can easily feature themselves on a song without being compared.

“Nobody cares they just jam to it but then when two rappers are on a project people tend to just compare the lyrics and stuff,” she explained.

She continued; “So it’s like you guys putting your lives down you may be slaughtered at any time but this one is a collaboration, not a battle,” Eno Barony told the host.
