***This is an album of absolute individuality and self expression. It is representative of an artist expressing her inner world beauty, colors, creative dreams and perceptions through sounds, words, voice and music. This artist is not in contention with anyone or any other style. It is potentially a collector's item for niche music. Organically Singing is a colorfully creative album. Well done. - Papa Tee ~ KORA Award Nominee Artist, Producer & Media Personality
***The epitome of novelty and originality. Tosinger is creating and re-creating in her own lane, providing her audiences with the best that soul and folk has to offer. And it is all done under the Afrodiasporic umbrella. If you are looking for an album to listen to at any time or place, ‘Organically Singing’ is it. The nostalgia, the resonance, the careful production – this musician is operating at a level that very few can claim. - Akinyemi Balujaiye ~ Editor- Afrocipha.com
*** Very nice. Tosinger's voice has a theatrical quality, like an opera soprano confidently moving into pop like a Sarah Brightman. Definitely she will hold her own in an orchestra format.Great composition too, some of her songs can easily move into an afro territory of Bjork or Kate Bush. - Ayo Osinibi ~ World Music Record Producer, DJ and Art Curator
***Original and fresh music of a soulful vibe and inspirational lyrical content with an incorporation of Afro musical flavors, a sublime vocal delivery with a sprinkle of the yoruba language. A healthy musical serving with a nostalgic ambiance - Angela Domingo ~ World Music Lover

Nigerian AfroJazz/FolkSoul singer and songwriter TOSINGER has released the video for her beautiful song- Flowers. Yeah!
By Lola Scott
Death is a theme that we mostly tend to avoid in life’s journey, even with the knowledge that it is a final certainty for everything that lives, so it is refreshing to hear one more beautiful song that reminds us to appreciate and enjoy these moments we have breath.
Flowers especially encourages us to appreciate those people that matter to us…
I wrote this song in February of 2019 with the pure intention of really just passing a message across as I felt it at the moment. I did not pay attention to structure nor standard rules of composition. I just let go and let it flow. You can download it here
I wrote the lyrics as I felt and as it matched the vibes of the track (produced by Lexisugar) and I gave in to the musicality as I felt it in my soul. Ambient sounds…
