Afrika Bambaataa

Profil:
American DJ and pioneering hip hop artist.

Born April 19, 1957 in the Bronx, NY, USA. He adopted the stage name Afrika Bambaataa Aasim, after a nineteenth century Zulu chief. He is of West Indian descent and cousin of Edward Rudolph AKA Kool Rock Steady.
He grew up in New York’s South Bronx, his musical eclecticism matched by his vision of African American social and racial unity. In the mid-1970's he was one of the pioneers of New York’s emergent Hip-Hop culture of Rapping, DJ Mixing/Scratching, Graffiti and Breakdancing. Along with two other Bronx DJs, Grandmaster Flash and Kool DJ Herc (both also of West Indian origin), he began playing small percussive sections from obscure and unexpected rock, funk and electro-pop records as a rhythm track for rappers, interspersing the beats with extracts from cartoon melodies and film themes.
Inspired by the British film 'Zulu', Bambaataa had founded a loosely convened organization of hip-hop's cultural luminaries, called the 'Universal Zulu Nation'. Described as both a fan and a master of records, Bambaataa achieved one of his lifetime ambitions in 1984 by recording "Unity", a duet with James Brown.

Founder of the label Mellowvibes Records with German sprayer Zulu Ben.

So is there any truth to the allegations of sexual abuse? This question is not to inflame any situation (So Discogs do not delete this comment!). I am just asking as there has been a lot of talk on some sites but there doesn't seem to be any official (i.e. Police) involvement in this serious allegation. I am not religious but I do hope this is unfounded! Fingers crossed...
