Canton wants to name street for O'Jays - but avoid confusion with OJ Simpson

CANTON, Ohio (CP) - The Canton city council is considering renaming a street for the O'Jays, but the move has been revised to avoid confusing the honour with O.J. Simpson.

Councilman Thomas West has proposed renaming a portion of Mahoning Road in tribute to the singing group that got its start in Canton. The council discussed the idea Monday night and could vote next month. But one business was concerned that people would think the street was named after Simpson, acquitted of the 1994 murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.

West agreed to change the request to The O'Jays Boulevard instead of O'Jays Boulevard.

The O'Jays, whose songs include Back Stabbers, Love Train and For the Love of Money, were inducted last month into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
