Bokuriri has a deep, smooth and laid-back voice. His voice even becomes richer when he sings in a long vibrato. Even though his voice may be sexy as an adult's, he's only a teenager. As a rapper and a vocalist, he was praised mostly because of his ability of writing song/rap lyrics. The way he combines the lyrics with sound sources (music) make it strongly exposing to his talented language skills.
