"Kafayat Quadri . . . brings in a strong Nigerian feeling into her songs and her voice is impactful and strengthening. My favourite song of hers was Wa S'ile Eko (Come to the House of Knowledge) in which she sang in Nigerian. It had so much of that oomph and heartfelt emotions that I sang out with all I can when she got us to sing along."

"Kafayat Quadri is gaining the attention of Nigerian social media lovers. Listening to her grooves, I found myself nodding my head in approval. It is always great to see young people who are willing to stretch their wings, check out/learn and use alternative forms of music expressions rather than the regular over used ones. Her voice is simply great. Two thumbs up!"
