Abiodun Oyewole (born Charles Davis, 1948), was a founding member of the legendary African American musical spieling group, The Last Poets, that developed into what is considered the first ever hip hop group. Abiodun was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and he moved with his maternal aunt and her new husband at age three to Queens, New York. At the age of 15, he attended a Yoruba Temple in Harlem. It was there that he was given the name by which he is best known. Early in his life, Abiodun was influenced by jazz and gospel music played by his parents and the poems of Langston Hughes.
