"I met Janjua when I went to India to record Grass Roots (Album). He was not well known at the time with an amazing voice that struck me straight away... ... I loved him simply because of his voice, till this very day one of the best Punjabi singers I’ve heard". ~ Panjabi MC
“Tony was an exceptional guy in anything he did; he was a black belt in martial arts, way back in the day, the most humble guy you would ever meet and at the same time the toughest. Most of the contacts in the industry I received were through Tony, he was really a nice guy, that’s why people still remember Tony and there’s nothing more or less than that, he was just a phenomenal guy..."
"To be honest, what happened has taught everyone a big lesson, it was so unfair, a massive shock to the industry, only because he was a big character and that’s why we pay tribute to Tony..." ~
