AllMusic Review by

Bonga Kwenda is one of Angola's hottest vocalists. He's gifted with the charismatic qualities and vocal attractiveness necessary for any singer to attain not just popularity, but greatness. His husky, roaring delivery, confident manner and aggressive sound emerge on every cut featured on this late-'80s disc. He's singing in the Angolan "merengue" style, which blends aspects of Afro-Latin and African music. Bonga Kwenda's name joins the lengthy list of first-rate African vocalists beginning to gain notoriety beyond the continent.
