My name is Mercy Okoduwa popularly known as Merciana, I hail from Edo state, Nigeria. I am a gospel artist, a singer, model, mentor, counsellor and more. I am a first class graduate of Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the University of Benin
I kinda experienced childhood in an entertainment home, my dad was a performer and film maker, my mum was more like his manager and was also an actress and we had a very diversion filled environment in my home. Most of my brothers play all sought of musical instruments. I didn't really pick up music then although I could dance real good I think, smiles, but I have always loved good music and have been drawn to Gospel right from high school after I got born again.
Sometime after university, I began giving more consideration to my music self, alot of individuals continued revealing to me I could sing, despite the fact that I never felt I could really, I knew I had potential however. What truly made me start to make this stride in the ending of 2019 into 2020 was on the grounds that I was the sort of individual that could keep awake until late around evening time tuning in to Gospel melodies by any semblance of Jenn Johnson, Kim Walker, Kari jobe, Jonathan McReynolds, Tasha Cobbs, Victoria Orenze, Theophilus Sunday, GUC and so on and simply be making the most of God's quality presence. I never truly took in these tunes in terms of learning the lyrics, I end up simply murmuring my own words into the rhythms and simply stream.
