(+Lyrics + meaning + translation) Music review: Mercy by Adekunle Gold

What is the song Mercy by Adekunle Gold about?

The word “Mercy,” means compassion.

Fake love on the other hand means untrue love.

In the song, Adekunle is imploring God to have mercy on him, show him those who love him genuinely, care for him, and always support him. He implores God to separate him from those unfriendly friends or enemies seeking his downfall so he doesn’t wine and dine with them.

The intro of the song features the vocal of his wife Simi. View below:

“AG Baby carry body body, oh oh oh, ah ah

No dey worry worry, oh oh oh”
