Kodjovi Kush unique style of Agbajazz, is a creation from the fusion of Agbadja, Hilghlife the traditional music and dances from Togo, Ghana and Benin, its rhythms and time signatures with Jazz influences.

Kodjovi arrived in London when the Africa Centre was a stronghold for African cultures, a place the Africans can call home away from home. He has since dedicated himself to gather some of those same musicians to perform with him, supporting artists like Alpha Blondy, Lucky Dube and more.
The connection with some of the greatest African musicians in London led him to join the Funkees, Ibile, Yesking and Soothsayers to perform in the most important live music venues in town and great festivals around the world like: North Sea Jazz, Womad, Glastonbury, Bangladesh World Music Festival, O2, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Barbican, and many more.
