Lucky Dube recorded more than 20 albums in his career
A South African court has found three men guilty of shooting dead reggae star Lucky Dube in 2007.
Dube's family reportedly clapped as the verdict was read out in the Johannesburg High Court.
The 43-year-old was killed as the three stole his car in a Johannesburg suburb in a case which shocked the nation.
Two of the three had earlier tried to escape custody and appeared in court with bandaged heads after being restrained by the police.
Dube's son Thokozani, who witnessed his father's killing, told reporters at court: "What happened to uBaba [Dube] was really traumatic to all of us, but we are happy that his killers have been found guilty.
"We know they are being brought to book and we can now have closure."
He said he hoped they would get a "proper sentence", reports the Sapa news agency.
Security was increased in court after Sfiso Mhlanga and Mbuti Mabe tried to escape, allegedly using a brick to hit a police officer, who needed hospital treatment.
Their co-accused Julius Gxowa was also found guilty of the star's killing.
South Africa's best-selling reggae artist, Dube recorded 22 albums in Zulu, English and Afrikaans during his 25-year career.
Lucky Dube's kiling shocked the nation
The court has heard the three men did not know the identity of their alleged victim until they read about it in the newspapers the following day.
The killing led to renewed domestic calls for the restoration of the death penalty in a bid to stem one of the world's highest murder rates.
The BBC's Mpho Lakaje in Johannesburg says South Africa's international image has been tarnished by its alarming crime levels.
Nearly 19,000 people were murdered last year, according to official statistics.
