Ibrahim, known by his stage name IBOMERCY, is a Turkey-based artist who views music as a hobby rather than a source of income. Born in Istanbul, he has a deep-rooted love for music, often falling asleep and waking up to it. His main inspiration comes from Christopher Comstock, popularly known as Marshmello, whose work he greatly admires.
IBOMERCY doesn’t like to limit himself to a single genre but identifies most closely with instrumental music. One of his favorite artists is Sezen Aksu, and he particularly loves her song “Tükeneceğiz.”
While he doesn’t make music for recognition or financial gain, he appreciates both positive and negative feedback on his work. His future plans include exploring different genres and possibly collaborating with other artists. Interestingly, he sees himself working in a hospital in five years, as he is also a healthcare worker.
A humorous episode in his career occurred when he uploaded his own music to Soundcloud manually, not realizing it was already being automatically distributed to the platform. This led to a copyright infringement issue on his own music, which he is currently resolving.
