It is very sad to learn about the tragic murder of South African
Reggae superstar Lucky Phillip Dube. His family, Africans
especially South Africans, and many across the world have lost a
good man, who to many was charming, respected, selfless, dedicated
and a wonderful musician and entertainer. We at Arious send
our condolences to his family, friends and all his fans!!!
According to the South
African Press Association South African reggae superstar 43 year
old Lucky Dube was shot dead this past weekend. The report says he
was killed in a hijacking in Rosettenville, a suburb of
Johannesburg. According to the Police and reports Dube, had
just dropped off his son and daughter, ages 15 and 16 at a family
member's house, when he was attacked. Carjackers fired at
least three bullets into his body but then fled without
stealing his car. Police have set up a special task force to trace
a group of three suspected killers who are believed to be
well-known local criminals. They said that the car had rolled down
the road a few yards and then hit a tree. “He was declared dead
on the scene,” Inspector Lorrain Van Immareck said.
Ivor Haarburger, the CEO of Gallo Records, the star’s
recording label, said: “We are in shock: not only me but the
whole company. He has been with us for over 20 years. It’s a
real tragedy, not only to those in South Africa but also Africa
and the rest of the world.”
South Africans and Africans
on a whole are outraged about this senseless murder. It is a
known fact that crime in South Africa is out of control, and this
surly rings out loud and clear by this murder. Some statistics
indicated that in South Africa there are 50 murders a day, which
have begun to damage investments and alarm big businesses.
The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), traditionally
a strong ally of the ruling African National Congress (ANC), said
that it was appalled and outraged at the murder and added its
voice to calls for solutions to crime. President Mbeki, who is often accused of being in denial on the
appealed to South Africans to confront the “scourge of crime”
together. “This is indeed very, very sad that this happened to
an outstanding South African, an outstanding musician".
uncontrollable crime situation is taking place all across the
nation, and not only in our cities here in America. I ASK
WHY DO WE KILL EACH OTHER? WE
HAVE GOT TO REALIZED THAT WE ARE NOT EACH OTHER'S ENEMY AND STOP
THESE KILLINGS AS WELL AS THIS UNCONTROLLABLE CRIME WAVE!!!!
Lucky Philip Dube was born on August 3, 1964 in
Johannesburg. His parents separated before his birth and he, his
sister, Thandi, and his brother, Patric, were raised by his
Dube was a hard
worker at a very young age, he began working as a gardener to help
with the family, but he realized he was not earning enough money
and quickly decided to attend school. He then joined
the school choir, and soon thereafter he formed a group called the
Skyward Band with some of his friends. At school is where he
discovered and became a Rastafarian. Dube at the age of 18,
joined his cousin's band called "the Love Brothers" (the
band performed Zulu music known as Mbaqanga). Shortly
thereafter, Dube and the band (with a new name: "Lucky Dube
and the Supersoul.") recorded and released their first album
at Tear Records in Johannesburg (now the Gallo Recording Company).
writing some of the lyrics after the release of the band's first
album. During this time he began learning English, which
afforded him the opportunity to write his lyrics in English and
Zulu. Later he even began writing in Afrikaans.
Dube and the band
continued recording and released several albums, and by the
release of the fifth Mbaqanga album "Supersoul"
was dropped from the group's name on the basis that fans were
responding to Dube's music and performance in particular (per the
advise of Dave Segal Dube's recording engineer.)
In 1984 his album
"Rastas Never Die" was not successful and of course did
not sell as well as expected, but he continued on
releasing commercially successful albums. He recorded a
total of 21 albums in Zulu, English and Afrikaans and became South
Africa's biggest selling reggae artist.
He has won
several awards: (1) OKTV awards for the album,
"Prisoner." (2) In 1996 he released a compilation album
called "Serious Reggae Business" which led him to be
named best-selling African recording artist at the World Music
Award and the international artist of the year at the Ghana Music
Awards. His follow-up albums won South African music awards.

Earlier this week we got word about an interesting upcoming event,
which is one of the results of the Jena 6 issue. It was
announced on November 16th at 12:00 Noon there will be a March for
Justice in Washington DC.
According to The Atlanta
Journal-Constitution, the Rev. Al Sharpton
announced a march will take place at the U.S. Justice Department
in Washington on Nov. 16. Rev. Sharpton,
while speaking at a News Conference in Atlanta stated the protest
is for what he believes is the Justice Department's failure to
prosecute a series of recent hate crimes across the country.
He stated: "We feel that the federal government has failed to
intervene in the cases of hate crimes — swastikas and
nooses," Sharpton said. "Since the federal government
won't come to the people, we're going to bring the people to the
Rev. Sharpton was joined at this news
conference with Martin Luther King, III. Both noted what appeared
to be a string of copycat crimes involving nooses following the
well-publicized Jena 6 episode in Louisiana.
Additionally, Radio Talk Show host, Mr. Warren
Ballantine, who is a part of this team called for a
"blackout" on Nov. 2nd , asking people to not spend
money on that day in hopes of sending a message to the federal
If you believe in obtaining fair and
equal justice for all, and have witnessed the injustice Mychal
Bell has, and is still experience regarding the Jena 6 issue; and
in Rev. Sharpton's statement: "We'll continue to
mobilize until there's justice, and that has to come from the
federal government", then you need to make plans to be in
attendance on November 16th to march at the U.S. Justice
Department in Washington DC
to our friend Kenley, a dedicated member of our
community and who we learned recently is being honored by the St. Vincent and Grenadines
Association and Embassy. "Shortmus" as he is fondly
called, is a singer,
songwriter, producer, DJ and mas band leader here in the
Washington DC area. Throughout the years Todd and I
have witnessed the growth of this gentleman, and indeed it has
been a very nice growth. I must commend him for always doing
everything in his power to accomplish his goals, and for being so
committed to his music, his people and his culture.
Honestly, I cannot congratulate Shortmus without mentioning a good
friend of mine, and his - Stephanie, who is one friend that strongly
believed in Shortmus and helped him tremendously with obtaining
his dreams and goals along the way. Congratulations Mr.
Shortmus, you absolutely deserve being recognized.
