Barbara Tamiko Ferguson (Tamiko Jones) was born in 1945 and is thought to still be living. Her first recording, Is it a sin, was released on Checker Records in 1963; on the label she is incorrectly identified as Timiko. She continued recording with other labels, then eventually went into artiste management, becoming William “Smokey” Robinson’s manager. Tamiko is understood to be married to John Abbey, the founder of the British “Blues and Soul” magazine.
