If I'm not mistaken, this is the second Shabalala brother to be murdered. Wasn't his brother, Headman Shabalala, killed a few years ago?
I think it was Joseph Shabalala that was killed earlier. But the group is in New York for concerts this week. Are you sure about the news?
Joseph is the leader of the group. He is alive and well.
Ben Shabalala had not performed with Ladysmith Black Mambazo since 1993.
