I Hesitated in Releasing Don’t Judge Me – Eno Barony
Hot on the promotional trail for her latest single, rapper Eno Barony has revealed fear of critique over her religious upbringing almost kept her from releasing it. Don’t Judge Me, the third single from the rapper this year has been enjoying massive airplay and is currently the second trending video on YouTube music.
In an interview with Jason EL on MxLive, Eno Barony said being the daughter of a reverend minister pushed her to heavily sieve the single, taking out several lyrics and punchlines to avoid speculation of her attacking the church and her upbringing.
The rapper stated, “I hesitated in releasing this track ‘cos I did not want people to think I was rebelling against my dad. I had to sieve this song over and over again. I had to take a lot of punch lines out.”
Receiving harsh criticism is nothing new. Since her debut as a female rapper, Eno Barony has had to develop a thick skin to the criticisms that come with being a female in a heavily male dominated industry.
“I am always judged for everything I do. I just want to pass a message to people. People should see rap as a job and not judge me.”
Eno Barony assured of one more single before the year is out. MxLive is shown weekly at 3pm on the Mx24 channel.
