• “Affy’s feel and groove is fantastic, she has the technique of someone way above her years and is a star in the making. A talent like Affys should be nurtured and helped along in any way and I will personally put my reputation on her to do great things in the future.”

    Simon Difford (Drum Tech for Mark Ronson/Jamiroquai)
  • “The first time I saw Affy let loose it took me back to the great drummers I have seen like John Bonham , Papa Jo Jones , and Tony Williams.”

    Steve Abbott (Music Manager)
  • “Big praise , but she has such rare contrast in her playing , one minute perfect economy , the next opening up like a sonic whirlwind! The hottest new drummer of her generation.”

    Cerys Matthews (singer)
  • “From the moment I saw Afrika’s audition tape I knew she was it. The real deal. Technically impecable, musically fluent and utterly dedicated to her craft. The band needed Afrika – they needed her skill and versatility – what they also got was her 24 carat human spirit. Talent, Generous and lovely with it? Nauseating – but true.”

    Celina Parker BBC
  • “Afrika is an outstanding young drummer who can turn her hand to any style of music with natural ease.”

    Guy Chambers
