We present an adaptive coupling strategy to induce hysteresis/explosive synchronization in complex networks of phase oscillators (Sakaguchi-Kuramoto model). The coupling strategy ensures explosive synchronization with significant explosive width enhancement. Results show the robustness of the strategy, and the strategy can diminish (by inducing enhanced hysteresis loop) the contrarian impact of phase frustration in the network, irrespective of the network structure or frequency distributions. Additionally, we design a set of frequency for the oscillators, which eventually ensure complete in-phase synchronization behavior among these oscillators (with enhanced explosive width) in the case of adaptive-coupling scheme. Based on a mean-field analysis, we develop a semi-analytical formalism, which can accurately predict the backward transition of the synchronization order parameter.
