African drummer and singer who invented the boogie beat, according to the racist 1955 song "Birth of the Boogie" by early rock and rollers Bill Haley and the Comets.

Down in Africa, many years ago
There lived a little fella named Zulu Joe
He took his tom-tom, a great big stick
And that was the birth of the boogie lick
