The 7th edition of the annnual Ghana Meets Naija concert was actualised last Saturday at the Accra International Conference Centre.
This year’s Ghana Meets Naija witnessed picturesque performances by the Dancehall king in Africa; Shata wale, Davido, Falz, Manifest, Tiwa savage, Kojo Nkansah Liwin, Eno, and a host of other artistes which thrilled all patrons of the show.
A tight battle between the top artistes from both Nigeria and Ghana gingered these artistes to showcase to the entire world their outstanding stagecrafts and performances.
One act that mesmerised patrons of the show was that of Eno. To their surprise, a coffin was crawling on stage which kept the entire audience in a huge suspense.
The female rapper’s team of dancers stormed the stage in a black hooded outfits as they chanted on her to her emergence from the white coffin. Even though it was scary, but we all enjoyed that stage craft and loved her adroitness with rap.
A renowned Radio presenter and an entertainment critic named Nana Frimpong, affectionately called ZIEGA of Kessben FM in Kumasi believes Eno’s stagecraft was more spiritual than what the whole of Ghana witnessed.
In a private interview with dblexonline.blogspot.com, Ziega stated emphatically that, Eno is certain her career is enshrouded and wants to do all her best to resurrect it using black magic.
“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. 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.” he stated.
