Levinsky Allen was possibly one of the co-writers of a song called “What Goes Around Comes Around” recorded by Michael Jackson.

According to Arthur “Hakim” Stokes, another co-writer of the song :
  "Hal Davis, who has passed on, was from Cincinnati. He was also the Jackson Five’s producer. We had written a song called “What Goes Around Comes Around”. Hal had come to Dayton through a mutual friend, Levinsky Allen. He heard it, liked it, and ended up recording it for Michael Jackson on his Ben  album in 1972"
