 “For those who think reggae is losing its steam, there is a genuine article in town known as Rex Suru,     Afro-roots Reggae creator, who just released two hot singles to remind us that reggae is nowhere near     being dead… “African Woman” and “You Are Special” (were released) simultaneously on Notjutok and Tooexclusive music download sites. Unlike most contemporary songs of today devoid of message, Rex’s lyrics are laden with soul-stirring messages, be it a message of love, Africa unity, and what have you.  …..With his band, the Cherubim Vibes, he has become the quintessential voice for Afro-roots Reggae.” –      Ayo Onikoyi, Vanguard, 12/30/16

“By listening to him, you get a feel of reggae, then highlife with a breezy Afrobeat temperament but Rex is much more than that. He would tell you he does Afro-roots Reggae but when you listen to him confusion sets him because of the spectrum of the beat and sound. He started his music career in the United States but now back home in Nigeria to reinvent himself.” – Juliet Ebirim and Ayo Onikiyi, Vanguard, 2/6/15
