Nkulee Dube

The late Lucky Dube’s daughter-Nkulee Dube- followed in his father’s footsteps and she is already making her mark in the reggae circles.

Nkulee Dube is the daughter of late legendary Reggae singer Lucky Dube.

The late Lucky Dube is among the greatest reggae artists of all time.

His songs carried heavy messages especially against the oppressive Apartheid rule in his native South Africa. Apart from his musical success, Dube and his wife  Zanele Mdluli loved family and were blessed with seven children.

One of the children -Nkulee Dube- followed in his father’s footsteps and is already making her mark in the reggae circles.

Unlike her father who made a name by composing tens of songs against the oppressive Apartheid regime, the 35-year-old Nkulee has made a name tackling topics such as drugs abuse and HIV.
