Biography

Lucky Dube (born August 3, 1964, died October 18, 2007) was a reggae musician from Johannesburg, South Africa. He was named Lucky because when he was born in poor health, and the doctors thought he would die. But he survived, so was named Lucky. In his youth, Lucky lived with many different family members, singing in bars and in church. He eventually formed a band with some friends, but they could not afford to purchase instruments. Eventually, Lucky wrote a play which he and his bandmates performed, earning enough money to buy a guitar. Their band was then called Skyway, and they played in the mbaqanga style.

    Lyrics
    Freedom fighter standing on a mountain in a foreign country
    Trying to send a message to his people back in the ghetto
    He had a home one time, love of a girl
    But he left that behind
    Oh, yes, I can hear him clearly as he whispers in the air

    Lyrics
    Ministers of religion have visited me many times to talk about it
    They say to me, I gotta leave it I gotta leave it
    It's a bad habit for a man but when I try to leave it
    My friends keep telling me, I'm a fool amongst fools
    Now I'm a slave, a slave

    Somebody told me about it
    When I was still a little boy
    He said to me, crime does not pay
    He said to me, education is the key, yeah
    As a little boy I thought I know
