Traveling the world is to me, one of the most rewarding perks of the hard work ,we put into making hit records. Of all the places, our visits to Africa have to have been, by far, the most intriguing. At times, however depending on the country and place, the downside of these visits were the issues of security. Some areas of many African countries are so impoverished that crime is rampant and it can be a very dangerous place for Americans of our status to be without a security detail.
Scams were another issue, you just didn’t know who you could trust, the whole place was corrupt. I remember the briefing pamphlets that we were issued, before we left home ,even,warned about being bribed by local police. It just made me feel like I couldn’t have enough security that was dedicated to the sole task of protecting the World Famous Tony Williams. I set out on a mission to strengthen my forces and after a few inquiries was given a number to a man that was known simply as Jappa.
