Mercy Akuot: Artist, Activist⁠.

Mercy Akuot: Artist, Activist⁠.

South Sudanese artist Mercy Akuot uses her music to tell stories from her own life and to make demands for a better life for women and girls. ⁠

As a survivor of forced marriage when she was only 15 years old, Mercy first told her story publicly at TEDx Kakuma Camp in 2018. ⁠

⁠Since then Mercy has recorded an album with two other talented young women in the camp. ⁠


The album is called Bado Mapema (It’s Still Early). On the title track each of the women tell their own story of forced marriage before coming together in harmony on the chorus to lament and demand that, it’s too soon. Mercy also works as a social worker in Kakuma Refugee Camp where she counsels families and helps young girls escape marriage and stay in school. ⁠
