Ben Arogundade is a writer, publisher and entrepreneur from London. He is the author of ten works of fiction and non-fiction, including ‘Black Beauty’, ‘Obama: 101 Best Covers’ and his debut novel, ‘The Sexual Language of Strangers’. ‘Black Beauty’ was honoured by the New York Public Library and became the subject of a three-part BBC documentary.
Ben is one of eight children born to Nigerian immigrants who settled in the capital in 1961. He originally trained as an architect before diversifying into graphic design and freelance journalism, where he wrote features for a range of international publications. Alongside his written work Ben also works as a voiceover artist across commercials, documentaries and TV and radio dramas.
In 2016 Ben launched his own fledgling media company specialising in books and apps. Its publishing imprint, White Labels Books, creates print-on-demand, direct-to-consumer fiction and non-fiction. ‘Fake Views? The Donald Trump Book Of Covers’ is its latest release.
