All is now set for the former West African Idol contestant, Jerrilyn Mulbah to drop her debut album this year, almost four years after her first public appearance in 2007.
The emerging songbird’s road to fame began with her singing a tribute song to her late mother at the auditions of the first West African Idols competition and her greatest wish is to embody the African woman through her music and honour the memory of her late mum by helping others.
Meanwhile, in her stride to stardom, Jerrilyn performed before an estimated 20,000 concert audience, marking the first phase of the Stop Rape Campaign spearheaded by United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), the government of Liberia and other partners.
As a tool for change, Jerrilyn’s music is enabling her to inspire and empower young women like herself, who have been through similar circumstances to stand for something so that they don’t fall for just anything. Her amazing life story has allowed numerous women, especially those indigenous to Africa, to value their own lives in every way possible
Jerrilyn’s new singles include, “Molejo” and “Mr DJ” and they were produced at Kiss Music Studios by Meka E. The songs were written by Jerrilyn and Dipo Abdul for Miss Dynamite Entertainment.
