"Carried by a tense guitar riff and incisive rhythm, A son magni evokes the bad character of his fiancee. For Cisse, a song must always convey a message. A song is not great but the content is according to a Bambara proverb. The song has been reedited by Voodoocuts and approved by Abdoulaye Cisse himself".
"With the Africa Gone Funkee release, you’ll experience 3 rare and funky 45’s from the Motherland. From Burikina Faso to Madagascar through Benin and Cameroun, from soul to funk through afrobeat, these six songs are sparkling pieces of the vast puzzle of modern African music".

"A prize gem in Rocafort's Africa Gone Funkee crown, "Aw' Ye Douba Ke" was the final salvo of Burkina-born Cisse's debut album Les Vautours. Kudos to the Rocafort crew for this 7" reissue! With its soft build, the classic highlife guitars play the perfect subtle backdrop for Cisse's strong yearning vocals as we develop into something really funky indeed with big horn and organ solos. Flip for a special, percussion-heavy shake-up of his 1975 single "A Son Magni". Overwhelming."
