The sad news that Tony Allen uncontested Afrobeat drummer king is dead hit us hard and we couldnt say much than a joyous farewell to the afrobeat legend.
‘Without Tony Allen there will be no Afrobeat ‘ fela confessed about this talented and world famous drummer.
Around 1970 when Afrobeat was being created by Fela, Tony Allen was there and his input in the creation of the renowned African music genre can be felt all over Afrobeat.
The fact is anywhere that Afrobeat is prominently mentioned then you will certainly hear Tiny Allen’s name.
He was born in Lagos in 1940 and throughout his life he dedicated everything to music even after the passing away of his love time pal Fela.
