Goodbye Lucky Dube

Lucky Dube, the south African reggae artist, has left us. Lucky has been shot last october 18 in the Johannesburg suburb of Rosettenville. 5 men, professional carjackers have been arrested. Lucky was born in 1964 and in his career has recorded  22 albums in 3 languages, Zulu, Africaans and English, during a period of 25 years. He brung the socio-political messages associated with Jamaican reggae to the south african audience, during the years of the apartheid.  A rastafarian one of its kind:

“If Rastafarianism is about having dreadlocks, smoking marijuana and believing that Haile Selassie is God, then I am not Rastafarian.

But if it is about political, social and personal consciousness, then, yes, I’m,”

 Goodbye Lucky!
