A Kumasi-based entertainment presenter has said there is more to Eno’s stagecraft at the Ghana meets Naija show than it just being a stagecraft.

Patrons of the annual Ghana meets Naija show were thrilled to series of performances; the most engaging being the performance of self-acclaimed Dancehall king, Shatta Wale.

However, rapper Eno who have been off the music scene for some time took the challenge too far when she came on stage in a casket dead and had to be resurrected by her dancers.

Speaking on the matter, the radio presenter with Kumasi-based Kesben FM Nana Frimpong Ziega said Eno’s intro/stagecraft where she had to be resurrected has more spiritual connotations than the public saw.

He indicated that the artiste has come to the realization that her career has been buried and that the chanting of “Arise, Arise, Arise” by her dancers meant she was resurrecting her career.

He said:” After watching the play back of last saturday’s Ghana Meets Naija Concert, I could say there is more to Eno’s stagecraft than meets the eye. My understanding of her casket display is, the young girl feels her carrier is buried and needs to be “resurrected”. Eno has been struggling to make carrying coals to Newcastle possible ever since but still at the borders. Eno was in existence before Khaki, MzVee and some of her age group songstresses but she still can’t count up to three hits. I can confidently say she laid in the casket and the arise! arise!! arise!!! being chanted by her dancers was a ritual performance”.

He indicated that Eno started as a promising talent considering the fact that she is a rapper but her handlers have failed her hence resurrecting her career with what is called in the local parlance as black magic.

Eno has been struggling to make carrying coals to Newcastle possible ever since but still at the borders. Eno was in existence before Khaki, MzVee and some of her age group songstresses but she still can’t count up to three hits.

I can confidently say she laid in the casket and the arise! arise!! arise!!! being chanted by her dancers was a ritual performance.

I have been watching it over and over and that’s how I, Nana Frimpong Ziega understand it. Eno should have risen higher than where she founds herself currently. She was so promising at the then “K-fm free style” programme a couple of Years ago, but the handlers of the tongue twist rapper somehow couldn’t help her attain a brighter and formidable start. When I hear sounds from MzVee, Khaki, Efya, Becca and other nation’s gifted young songstresses, I ask myself “where’s Eno?”

Though she’s a rapper which cannot be compared to some of the above mentioned artistes but many thought Eno could have been the next big thing to happen in Ghanaian rap arena to challenge the likes of Sarkodie, Flowking Stone, Guru and others, but unfortunately she’s still struggling to get grounds in the game and my heart beats for her.

When one casts his or her mind back to the amateur days of Eno at the then “K-fm’s rap competition” that gave her a platform to realize her talent, you could see clearly that the Eno we had then was far better than the one we listen and see now and the question is what actually happened?

I think she has totally veered off where she belonged to.

All is not lost though.”
