“Sonia Aimy is renown world-wide for her Afrojazz and folk.”
“Described as a narrative about Nigeria, her birth place, which over the years has witnessed degeneration of some sorts, the single, according to the songster, shows that her soul truly belongs to Nigeria and African, despite her world outlook.”
“Her latest work reveals that her soul really and truly belong to Nigeria and Africa in general.”
“ Full of positive emotion and metaphorical musings”
“In the song, the singer took the audience way back to the moral and cultural sanctity of the traditional Nigerian society; days when children were taught good morals and etiquette through moonlight tales by their forebears and how all of that have given way to modernity with its attendant cultural influences, which has brought socio – cultural implosion to the fabrics of the society.”
“Sonia also uses this colorful, enchanting and entertaining song to wish her fans a prosperous New Year.”
“The session in Africa was very warm, more like a family re-union”
“What remains the same, regardless of place or language, is the spirit, the images that spark hope. "When you write something, it's a shadow that overwhelms you. It brings out an image," reflects Aimy. "It's like a womb that brings something new into the world."”
“The album, which is a celebration and admonition of the Nigerian nation, has nine tracks and two radio-edits.”
“ easy flowing, yet virtuosic performances. Her irresistible rhythms and melody and infectious joie de vivre unite audiences of diverse backgrounds.”
“Wrapped in imaginative lyrics amidst layers of instrumentation, Nigerian Spirit is an incantation for hope, presented with a versatile afro-jazz attitude, blended with highlife, juju music, and traces of gospel. ”
"Recorded in Canada, the title track is Aimys’ voice in full bridle of the magnitude of outrage at the kidnapping of young Nigerian girls by the Boko Haram terrorists."
