Among complimentary things written about her are “Anikiko’s voice has the smokiness of a jazz singer but she can also unfurl a purity of tine to woo the cerubium, as she does on a lullaby. Stunning.” words of praise from F. Merson of Limelight, who believes, as many do, Anikiko is set for a very promising future.

Her music is inspired by many musical greats of many genres and eras, with a sound that is mellow yet edgy, uplifting yet calming, sexy yet coy."
