“For movies yes nimekuwa na offers kidogo from Nigeria, but the problem kidogo it needed me to move to Nigeria. Na shooting is not something you are going to do in a week, it takes a bit of time and some of the offers I declined because the time was too long and the money was not enough for me to leave my family, my work.

Nigerian Afropop-soul musician Merci-Lisa has debuted her new track titled “Love Potion” taken from her recently released debut EP Appetizer,

Released via Golda-Amit, The Appetizer EP was composed and written entirely by Merci-Lisa, and according to her, is inspired by her:

“However, everything changed when I met the guys at Golda-Amit because my career and talent were given a flourishing environment and the support I need to succeed as a female Afro Pop-Soul artist in an industry dominated by well-resourced male performers.

“All the tracks on this ‘Appetizer’ EP are written with deep passion, emotion, admiration for true love, admiration for conquering life’s adversities, and satiation for good music that transcend the test of time.”
