Nigerian singer, guitarist, percussionist, composer and bandleader (1919-2006).

Born in Lagos, Nigeria in 1919, Campbell settled in Britain at the start of the second world war.

In 1952, he and his band, the West African Rhythm Brothers, acquired a longterm residency at the Abalabi Club in Soho's Berwick Street. He recorded 10-inch 78rpm singles for Melodisc while bandleader at the club.

In 1972, Campbell moved to Los Angeles, where he had been invited to work with Leon Russell. He was on the sessions for Russell's collaboration with Willie Nelson, One For The Road (Columbia, 1989).

He returned to Britain a few years before his death and settled in the southern seaport of Plymouth.
