Gizah, manager of top female rap act, Eno Barony, says his artist almost gave up on her music career.
He explained that this was as a result of lack of support at a point in her career.
Gizah added that it is not surprising that Eno Barony felt that way at a point in time because he has also observed that the media gives more attention to male artists than females
“I think the media easily forgets the women. If you look at it, we have done a lot of work this year but I often hear on radio when they talk about people who deserve to be nominated as artistes of the year and I still don’t hear her name. They still stick to guys.
But a lot of women have put in so much work this year. I always say that they need to put more attention into the ladies as well. They really need attention. Working with women is not easy. A lot goes into it. We put a lot of work out there and we don’t get the attention”, he said.
“I mean we have been to the point that she [Eno Barony] felt she was tired and she didn’t want to continue with the music. That is how serious it is”, he added.
Gizah stated that though she has not been celebrated enough, she has projected the rap genre especially among females.
“You can’t hide the fact that her genre is male-dominated but I think we had done a great job to prove that no matter your genre you can be an equally great rapper”, he said.
Eno Barony grabbed the ‘Best Rapper’ award at the 2020 edition of the Africa Music Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA).
