Reggae star LUCKY DUBE was shot and killed late THURSDAY in ROSETTENVILLE, SOUTH AFRICA, the victim of an apparent carjacking.
DUBE, 43, was dropping off his son at his brother's house when three gunmen shot the singer and fled after DUBE's car hit a tree. He recorded 22 albums in the course of his career, but his popularity grew and he gained international notoriety in the late 1980s after he switched from traditional mbaqanga music to reggae.
