Born to  the family of a music legend, Nkulee Dube in only a short spell of time in the music industry has managed to rubber stamp her name and earn herself a following not only in South Africa but across the globe too.

The daughter of the late reggae music legend Luck Dube glides and slides with ease in between her songs as she traverses between ragga and ethno-soul. As a guest artist and backing vocalist she was part of her late father's band "One People" and has dazzled crowds at major international festivals in countries such as Australia, Germany, holland and French Guyana to name a few.

Nkulee's international solo career began with the release of her debut album titled " My Way" which earned her both Metro Fm  and South African Music Awards nominations for Best Designed Album and Best Produced Album respectfully. In early July she scooped an international award at the 31st International Reggae and World Music Awards which were held at Chicago, USA. Taking one award of the six nominations she had, Nkulee is certainly living her fathers legacy.

Losing her father never resulted in breaking down, but instead it strengthened her. The hard working Nkulee deserves her current success and surely she is destined for greatness.
