”Thank you so much! You were fantastic. There are very few acts who could get everyone on the dance floor like you did. I danced to every song! I just wish you could go back on stage right now and sing your whole set again from start to finish!”
– Royal Bank of Canada

”Shola, your vocals were amazing. I book acts at this venue 4-5 nights per week but yours was one of the best voices Ive heard in ages. Cant wait to get you back here to perform again!”
– Twist Bar

“Wow!!!! Thank you, Thank you with all my heart Shola”
– Private Client

Shola performed at my 40th Birthday celebration and my heart still smiles when I re-live the moment she stepped on stage and belted out her first song. Shola has an amazing voice and a beautiful aura. Shola is so infectious with her beautiful music that just carried out through the night and made the evening such a wonderful night to remember, not only for me but all my guests. I was even invited to become a Supreme for the night which was a real laugh but I think I will stick to my day job and leave the singing to the professionals.”
– Keren

“Shola Kaye has been performing here in Smithfield Bar & Grill as a resident since November 2007. A favourite with both regulars and staff alike due to her laid back easy style and exquisite voice which provides us with the perfect backdrop for our busy bar and restaurant. Shola is a true professional – always punctual and pleased to help – we look forward to our continued relationship and would highly recommend her as an addition to any venue!”
