“Kunle! It’s a good thing we in the States don’t know what that name means, because once you hear his incredible, energetic, world-beat, soulful, jazzy and uplifting music, you’ll still be baffled anyway! What is a Kunle?! Just listen and be transformed.”

- Kirk Whalum


“Giving a shout out to you Mr Kunle, musician extraordinaire. The world awaits your awesome talent. Keep spreading the love with your beautiful music. ‘Coming to a town near you’ master musician Kunle, bringing you all styles… jazz, afro, soul, funk, mellow vibes...“

- Mausiki, Common Ground


“Kunle has a rare combination of gifts – he is able to tell a story simply with a melody on guitar and at the same time, fill the ears of a listener with an incredibly authentic musical point of view. His pas­sion feels rooted in his love for his homeland and his distinct appreciation for humanity. The music he makes is thing of beauty.”

- Dave Koz
