"Kae Sun’s sophomore LP, Afriyie is a fresh example of authentic Canadian talent. 8/10"

"People try to categorize Kae Sun’s music a lot. His latest album, Afriyie, has elements of folk, R&B, reggae, soul and pop. Sometimes he gets tagged “urban-folk” or “neo-folk” or “folk-soul.” Or something... the genial Ghanaian-Canadian singer produced a variety of sounds wonderfully difficult to pin down.”

"Afriyie is an effort that promises Kae Sun will have a long career in this game. 7/10"

“Kae Sun is a songwriter whose work transcends contemporary definitions and exists in a realm of its own... His love songs are both passionate and beautiful, delivered with the sincerity of an old soul.”
~~ Enyi Emesih / okayplayer.com
"His voice is gorgeous, rooted strongly with choir/soul influences that give him a nice, funkier style. The storytelling is relatable and easy-listening."

"His minimal yet highly melodic songs instantly brighten days, as the acoustic material on Kae Sun’s 2011 follow-up EP, Outside the Barcode, also demonstrated. When he released a video for newer work “Ship and the Globe” last October, Kae Sun easily raised his own bar. The song is a rare one in today’s pop music landscape: immediately infectious yet absolutely original. “Ship and the Globe” earned Kae Sun an MTV Iggy nod late last year, and increased the excitement of fans anticipating a new album."

"There is no question that Kae Sun is going to find success in the future, this album a decadent art piece, and speaks for itself. The moments where a reggae vibe slips in, some darker drums, simple yet expressive guitar are indulged with his poetic lyrics. 4.7/5 Dragons"
