Ben Audu is a Nigerian UK-based funk and afrojazz saxophonist. Chiefly into African jazz music with his electrifying quartet, 6-piece sonorous instrument, Audu distinctly curate a niche of music for himself with his saxophone to extemporise different ways of gospel praise. His passion for music started burning with drawn inspirations from the likes of Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Joshua Redman, and Charlie Parker. Owing to his aural shapeshifting prowess on the saxophone, Audu has released two studio albums (Thanksgiving and Glorious Crown) in 2012 and 2014 respectively.
Basically, the songwriter’s music is driven by the viral afrobeat groves, which is an ensemble of traditional, Yoruba music, jazz, highlife, funk, and chanted vocals fused with percussion with laced intricate jazz solos.
He is the founder and CEO of Ben Audu Entertainment, and he holds a higher national diploma in electrical and electronics engineering from the Polytechnic of Ibadan, Nigeria.
