Awesome writer and performer, both in talent and professionalism !
Merty really helped out with creating a story for my song. I told him what it would be about and the lyrics sounded amazing. He definitely knows how to write lyrics and catch a good flow for a song. I’d highly recommend you to work with him if needing lyrics.
Merty is an excellent lyricist - I worked him with a new song, and he spent the time to get to know me as an artist to better understand my goals; since we are both full-time musicians, we both take the creation process very seriously with the respect it deserves. He was always responsive, worked very well remotely, and iterated well so we could get to lyrics that could really make an impact on the listener. I plan on working with him again and would recommend him enthusiastically.
Perfect experience per usual !
Amazing work he always makes your vision come to life
Gave me great lyrics. Very fast delivery no revisions needed.
He does amazing work you will not be disappointed with the finished product. I will definitely be going to him in the future.
It took a little bit longer than expected but I loved the results. Really worth the wait.

I like him very much! As a person too. I like what he did for my songs.
I can tell you that as good as usual!

Creating new fire every time. Merty Shango always coming through with the energy to take your project to the next level.
Merty Shango, delivered everything I asked for and more. He's professional and delivered the song within a fast turnaround, at a great price. I liked how he immersed himself in the beat because not everyone can write to non-trap gritty beats. I will definitely return for more songs.
Like always Merty has come through once again. It’s always a pleasure working with him. He’s professional and ready to give you the dopamine you’ve been looking for .
One of the utmost professionals I've come across on this platform.
Very versatile and a pleasure to work with!
He slayed my project! Definitely got himself a repeat customer in me.
Glad we crossed paths!
