Abstract

Reggae has always looked to Africa as a symbol of authenticity and racial solidarity for the Diaspora, but in doing so often turns a blind eye to the realities of life on the continent. What signals get crossed, and what signals get strengthened, when a literal African takes on the myth of Mama Africa? Louis Chude-Sokei takes a long look at the South African reggae artist Lucky Dubé.
