In 1979, I was privileged to spend a day with Ali after picking him up from his home in Hancock Park-Los Angeles in a limousine and transport him to an interview with Bud Furillo on KABC Sports Radio. 

Then in 2011, as president of MusicUNTOLD, i produced a concert at the Long Beach, Ca. Performing Arts Center featuring Salif Keita from Mali, Africa. Salif composed music for the movie Muhammad Ali starring Will Smith (Foreman fight in Zaire). The Salif Keita concert was the first African music concert at the Long Beach Performing Arts.

See tribute from Salif Keita
