Wherever You Are, We’ll Remember You.

South African reggae star, Lucky Dube.

Last night, gunmen in South Africa fired several shots that were heard around the world as they murdered reggae star Lucky Dube in an attempt to steal his car. The 43-year-old musician had just dropped two of his children off at his brother’s house in Rosettenville, just south of Johannesburg, when he was attacked by three armed carjackers, who shot him at close range. The two children were unhurt. The attackers got away and remain at large. The killing has shaken fans in South Africa and the world over, and has drawn condolences and condemnation from South African President Thabo Mbeki and Senegalese musician Youssou N’Dour.

What a terrible blow! Like millions of Africans, I grew up with Lucky Dube’s music.  His death is a tremendous loss to Africa and to music lovers everywhere. My heart goes out to his widow and the seven children he leaves behind.

Lucky Dube, you will be remembered. Thanks for the music and the memories.
