Onovwerosuoke's rhythmic language would be worthy of analysis by students of the long process by which a common African-American language, musical and verbal, evolved out of the multiplicity of cultures of the enslaved. The overall effect is kinetic, colorful, and imposing — any symphonic programmer looking for music that will meet urban constituencies halfway should hear [his music]. 
- James Manheim (AllMusic.com critic)

Fred Onovwerosuoke's brief "Fanfare for Strings and Timpani," in its world premiere, was a rousing evocation of a Nigerian war dance, complete with the clanging of machetes -- fortunately only simulated. 
-John von Rhein -(Chicago Tribune music critic)

...attractive, rather epigrammatic and made an immediate effect, a compelling mixture of technical challenges, memorable ideas and clever compositional working, none of which outstayed their welcome...
- Review by Robert Matthew-Walker, ClassicalSource, London, UK.

..."The Gathering," an overture by Ghanaian-American composer Fred Onovwerosuoke was a brief, lively work propelled by rapid and aggressive African rhythms, while oscillating minor thirds and fourths create a delicious sense of danger–all powerfully rendered by Marlon Daniel and his orchestra...
- Review by Victor Carr, Jr., ClassicsToday

The piano lines in [Fredo's] songs "12 African Songs for Solo Voice and Piano" are lively and catchy - indeed,  though their sources are more exotic than African-American spirituals or Langston  Hughes, FredO's African songs have the  most popular appeal of all the material  on this [Libera, AGCD 2106] recording. 
- Chris King, Music Critic, (The St Louis American
)

These kinetic pieces [Twenty-four Studies in African Rhythms] easily get under one’s skin and they sound like they are fun to play. 
- American Record Guide (May/June 2009 issue)
