Lucky Dube was referred to by many as an African reggae icon whose contribution to the history of African reggae dub is revered.
His socially conscious political songs that fought against Apartheid in South Africa were inspired by Jamaican reggae artists like Jimmy Cliff and the late Peter Tosh who were vocal when it came to addressing any political crises through their music.
He recorded 22 albums in Zulu, English, and Afrikaans during his 25 year long career and was South Africa’s biggest-selling reggae artist to date.
Sadly Dube was gunned down on the night of 18th October 2007 at in an attempted car-jacking as he dropped off his son in the Rosettenville suburb of Johannesburg.
