lukedube1.jpg (28030 bytes)  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 crime issue, 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".

Clearly, this 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 mother, Sarah.

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).

Dube began 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.

A few good folks have planned tributes to Lucky Dube and have shared their information with us.  Their details are as follows:

Thursday, October 25 and Friday, October 26, 2007

Thursday Night 10PM - 11PM - WPFW 89.3 FM Washington DC will pay tribute to Lucky Dube on two nights:  Radio Personality Tony Carr will speak to several people who have played a major part in Dube's US Experience in the Wash. DC Area, such as: Dera Tompkins, Papa Wabe, Chris (Dube's former band member ), George (Dube's booking agent from the start) and Randall Grass (from Shanache records who distributed most of his albums in this country), and hopefully a live report from South Africa from someone in the inner circle of Lucky Dube. 

Friday night 10PM - 12midnight - Host Charlie D will pay tribute with lots of Dube's music and by allowing folks to pay their respects via live calls.

If you have had enough with the negative images that are being shown on BET, let your voice be heard.  Join the "Enough is Enough Campaign"

  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 federal government."

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 government.

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

  Exact same contact lenses for less.



Special Congratulations 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.
