Zula Nation Cuts Ties With Afrika Bambaataa After Sexual Abuse Accusations

When Zulu Nation founder Afrika Bambaataa was first accused of sexually assaulting boys -- by a New York politician who said the Hip Hop pioneer raped him when he was a child --  Zulu Nation responded defiantly.

In fact, they alleged Bronx judicial delegate Ronald Savage was part of a government conspiracy to take Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation down.

But then more victims came forward. And earlier this week Bambaataa's former bodyguard said he believes the 59-year old 'Planet Rock' artist has molested "hundreds" of boys.

That was enough for Zulu Nation to change their tune. Yesterday they distanced themselves from Bambaataa, saying they were seeking "new leadership" and an "in-depth re-assessment."

Zulu Nation added that focusing on the victims of sexual abuse would be part of their new direction.

Bambaataa’s lawyer, Charles Tucker, criticized the decision to cut ties with his client as a public relations move.

“This is not a crime story. This belongs in the gossip section. This is not Bill Cosby,” Tucker said.

Because of statute of limitations laws, Bambaataa likely won't face any criminal charges.
