In an Instagram post, Mercy urged her fellow artistes to remain true to the craft, and focus less on the money aspect of it.

According to her, when an artist takes time to compose and work on a good song, it will eventually pay off.

She further noted that being original and following the process may take long without one seeing the reward, adding that this should not discourage artists, since they will benefit in the long run.
