‚…one of the most masterfully produced albums from Germany. Wonderfully sung and played… an early Singer-Songwriter jewel of this year.Focus Online / dpa
‚The Swan‘ is wonderful grown-up pop, without the calculation but a whole lot of soul.‘Susanne Hasenjäger, NDR
Played with absolute precision; at times opulent, at other times sparing and almost minimalist. Big cinema for the ears.Matthias Schlott, SWR
A milestone in her career.Sebastian Bargon, SWR
Chamber music meets grand cinemaHarry Schmidt, Jazzthetik 03/2018
An enchanting album, goosebumps guaranteedOlaf Maikopf, Schädelspalter
A world-class album!Jon Flemming Olsen, 'Ditsche'
The Swan‘ is an ode to listening; to the hearing senses, and listening for its own sake.Alexander Ochs, BZ 2/2018
More intriguing than ever. The well-chosen instrumentation combined with warm, clever arrangement skills ensnares the most powerful, melodious, seductive repertoire that this fine voice has ever sung.Saarbrücker Zeitung, 3/2018
The Swan‘ convinces, with great compositions and developed Songs alternating between chamber music and cinematic elements. Audiophile CD of the month.Audio 2/2018
With this even more entrancing second work, the German-Nigerian singer delights us again with her lyrical, atmospherically dense personal style which lies somewhere between acoustic soul and folk noir.Stereo 2/2018
Her velvety-tender vocals, somewhere between Rickie Lee Jones, Edie Brickell and Sade, bring us melancholic snapshots (‚Cast Away‘), and the catchy ‘Headlights’ is a little pop-jewel.GoodTimes Magazin 3/2018
A beautiful album, although the analogue vinyl is somehow the best format. It has that clear sound that that makes the vocals transparent.Hörerlebnis 3/2018
With her new album‘ The Swan‘ TOKUNBO takes all her listeners on a wonderful journey through emotional worlds.Magascene Hannover, 3/2018
With eleven multi-faceted, complex music pieces, accomplished in particular through a rich varied soul voice, the artist is demonstrating the full range of her skill.Der Kultur Blog 2/2018
The Swan‘ is calm, deliberately measured. It is an anchor thrown in an increasingly faster world.Avalost Times 2/2018
TOKUNBO’s second solo album „The Swan“ is a sincere, emotional and mindful piece of acoustic pop, given legitimacy by half a dozen music universes with lungs, hand and heart.Soultrain Online 3/2018
‚Of course the ‚The Swan‘ takes off from the CD as well, but the LP best transports the air-light production, subtly mixed by Marc Ebermann.‘Mint 4/2018
TOKUNBO is now back with ‚The Swan‘, a wonderful collection of 11 songs and stories, wrapped up in silky soul and satin, sometimes going the folk route, sometimes jazz and pop, always staying true to herself.Ginalovesjazz 2/2018
And is there any reminder here of the fantastic Tok Tok Tok? But yes, the acoustic clothing.Schall 1/2018
