The beef between former VGMAs Rapper of the Year winner Medikal and Eno Barony, unquestionably Africa’s best female rapper, has taken a new turn.
In a previous interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, Medikal apparently had some goodwill for Eno Barony despite their disagreement. Barony’s skill and rap prowess was lauded by Medikal, who said that she was superior to many male rappers in the field.
“You no sey Eno Barony dey rap? I dey drive wey I dey listen one of her songs on the radio, her verse was dope. For a female rapper, she is very dope. She dey rap pass plenty of the male rappers in Ghana apart from me,” Medikal said in Pidgin English.
He then proceeded to say that he cannot be compared to other rappers because he is in a different league.
“You know sey me I dey my zone. I dey do my things different. You no go fit pair me plus any other rapper. I will be the judge. You for put me then am for one song top I go show sey women empowerment no dey work for my top. I go lash am,” he said.
However, Barony presumably misunderstood what he said and responded angrily, which prompted Medikal to respond back with a sarcastic remark. Those were Barony’s exact words;
“I think I heard what he said. He said I rap better than most male rappers except him. I think Medikal is a dope rapper and he raps better than most of the female rappers except me.
People dream. Sometimes it is good to wake people up so that they know that some dreams don’t come true.”
To this end, Medikal told Pulse Ghana that he believes his colleague is confused;
“I think Eno is confused, she does not want to understand that she is a female and I am a male. What I said about her was a big up to her that she can rap but she took it in a wrong way. She should never in her subconscious think that she can come up against me in rap, she should stop the cap. She is dope but she should stay in her lane. Some things are for big men only, big man things”, he said.
