"In a language which echoes no known poet’s, a voice so singular in its unconventionality, and themes that capture the poet’s people’s history and reality in spectacular images, Benjamin Kwakye’s Soul to Song pioneers a fresh path in contemporary African poetry." – Tanure Ojaide, Poet and Frank Porter Graham Professor of Africana Studies, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte

“Kwakye’s writing contains exuberant humor… and cutting insights into human nature… A darkly humorous modern take on the triumph of money, corruption, deceit, and evil” – Kirkus Reviews
