Aduke (Aduke Ayobankole Aladekomo) is a Neosoul singer, songwriter, art educator and performance artiste. She started out with a 6-year stint as a member of the Crown Troupe of Africa, a theatre and performance arts organisation. She has since found her voice. Her voice blends with folk, soul, Afrobeat, jazz and Highlife to bring to fore a unique musical experience. Aduke has engaged society through her ‘Hear the Voice’ Video, which was shot and directed in the midst of the 2012 fuel subsidy protests. Since then, she had been working on an album. Peace and Light, her first album which was released in 2019, has been performed in Brazil, China and the United Kingdom, with signature songs like ‘Made in Lagos’ and ‘Far Away’. She has performed in different festivals, conferences and residencies in Brazil, China, the United Kingdom and Nigeria alongside Femi Kuti, Nneka, Ade Bantu, Ekow Alabi, and others.

Aduke represented Nigeria at the Shenmo Education Centre, Lang Fang in China, where she was named the 2019 Shining Star, and was honoured as a member and international consultant at the Shenmo Women’s League.
