    It was a very sad, sad morning when I heard the announcement on a DSTv channel. Why are all our prophets being killed? Bob M, P Tosh, Culture and now Lucky Dube! My sympathy goes to his Mom, Wife and the Children who were forced to witnesse that barbaric and gruesome murder. Curse be unto whoever made that gun!

  • It is the nature of the prophet to someday become the martyr. Lucky lives forever in song

    Just to say fulk the south African big men as I can call them. Just seat fold you hands and see our big brother, the Lord of Reggae killed in an instant. Build by our almighty father, in heaven not for a day, not for a week, not for a month, and not for a year, but for decades. Stars never die, Hirrors never die, and Reggae will never die. I promise to sing of your grateness Dube and keep you living, for all your works are wonderful that for just a second, it will not keep you death, let a lone forgotten, but make you live forever. God Bless and keep you near our father, Bob Marley. Amen.

    too sad that heros like Dube are not protected and Africa had sat down to loose such legent. I would have exchanged my life for him to contnue the good work but it was not possible. I know Dubee personally. I could not control myself when l heard the news here in Canada. My his soul rest in peace and my condolence to the family.
