The Ghanaian rapper was talking about being thick and how she reacts to people who troll her about her weight. Reflecting on her early days as a rapper, she said her management and people kept advising to lose weight but it didn’t work. 

I remember my first management, I was supposed to lose weight before we actually shot our first video, I was jogging on KASS park, KASS Kumasi, jogging jogging every day, but you know the talent is there, why do you want to change me and put in skinny clothes?” she quizzed.


According to Eno, she doesn’t really care about what people say about her weight because she only needs to exercise to be fit but not lose weight to be accepted. 

The rapper added that she’s now a symbol to other plus size girls to empower them that no matter how there are they can do whatever they want.

During the show monitored by, Eno said that “If I change, it means I am going to let all those girls who are like me out there down, because they need to believe in themselves like no matter how I am, I can also do this so I don’t have to lose weight to be the best”
