  1. He's come into his own carrying on the tradition of Afro-beat, but putting his own beautiful signature on it as its original heir.
  2. The album lacks the gut-punch intensity of brother Seun Kuti's recent debut, and the lyrics occasionally border on the trite, but Femi certainly lives up to the family name.
  3. Kuti studied piano and revisited the trumpet, his original instrument, resulting in a more textured and jazz-influenced approach this time out.
  4. Femi's always good for a few easy-riding horn grooves and political calls to arms that his old man would be proud of, which is more than most musicians not named Kuti can claim.
  5. Mojo
    Finger-pointing music has rarely been as much fun. [Nov 2008, p.116]
  6. Seven years was certainly worth the wait for Day by Day, one of the 2008’s best releases. The album features all the hallmarks of a pop sensation—tight arrangements with intoxicating hooks, rousing choruses, and sing-along vocals.
