    Tony ALLEN - Politely

    Tony Oladipo Allen (12 August 1940 – 30 April 2020) was a Nigerian drummer, composer, and songwriter who lived and worked in Paris, France. Allen was the drummer and musical director of Fela Kuti's band Africa '70 from 1968 to 1979, and was one of the primary co-founders of the genre of Afrobeat music. Fela once stated that, "without Tony Allen, there would be no Afrobeat."[1] He had also been described by Brian Eno as "perhaps the greatest drummer who has ever lived."
