"Bikutsi Pop is sure to make an impact when it reaches Western shores...a fascinating melange of Afropop flavors that veer between American R&B, hip-hop, and Cameroonian traditional dance...[So' Forest's] album is a refreshing take on the Afropop vibe, and the traditional roots of Bikutsi shine through the hipper commercial sheen, which should endear him to a multitude of African music aficionados the world over."
"He brings a fresh perspective to the genre...Most of all, So' Forest's songs and performance style bring Bikutsi into a new era by including a Western feel of R&B and hip hop, as well as a smooth pop sound. The lyrics...carry a lot of depth. These are short stories of life, love and survival."
