Benjamin Dube Career
At age 9, Dube discovered his love for the instrument. When he reached 11 years old, he began playing the bass guitar and drums. His mother Grace trained them how to sing and harmonize, along with their siblings. As the Dube Family Singers, they first began performing at church. Sadly, his father was killed when he was only 14 years old. The Dube Family Singers carried on their father’s heritage and toured the Netherlands despite this tragic incident. The album “Vader Vergeef he then,” which translates to “Father Forgive Them,” was inspired by the tale of his father’s murder as related to them by their mother. In 1980, Dube started a singing group named “Share The Good News” while still in high school.
Dube also applied for a SABC talent search and, luckily, was selected. Notably, Sello “Chicco” Twala, a profane artist, noticed him. He extended an invitation for him to join his pop band, Image, as the main vocalist. In 1986, Dube began his career in preaching by recording “HOLY SPIRIT” with Benjamin and The Youth Choir. He has since released numerous songs as a solo performer and carved out a career in ministry. His friendship with Chicco Twala served as the impetus for his ascent. After the release of “HOLY SPIRIT,” the success of the music elevated him to stardom in South Africa.
He also collaborated with Lucky Dube on the song “Ebenezer” in 1988, and James Cleveland, a well-known American gospel singer, asked him to open for him when he performed in South Africa. Dube also went on a US tour after that and performed on stage with people like Andre Crouch.
