Jub Jub

He is controversial and many love to hate him. Uyajola 9/9 presenter and musician Molemo Katleho “Jub Jub” Maarohanye does not speak often about the fateful night on 8 March 2010 when he and his friend Themba Tshabalala caused a serious accident that killed four kids and left another two survive with brain damage while they were drag racing under the influence.

The Ndikhokhele rapper spent years in prison. In Unfollowed episode 8, season finale, the sunglasses stay on as host Thembekile Mrototo questions the former child star about how he keeps coming back,”even after the incident in which he and a friend killed four school children in March 2010, spentfour years in prison, and an ongoing rape trial.

Jub Jub is tight-lipped about the deadly 2010 accident, saying, “out of respect for the families that lost their kids…What happens with myself and the families is not for anybody,” he says. “Everything was taken away in the blink of an eye after that accident,” he adds. Noting how his words distance Jub Jub from his actions, Thembekile asks, “Taken away by yourself?” He answers, “Not really, I guess the choices,” says Jub Jub, who wishes he had” taken a stop in my life and actually figured out there’s no need to live a fast life.” The accident lingers as his “darkest day”. He explains, “A good part of me died as well … When you find yourself alone, you just remember … you try to sleep, you see visions. You try to move on with your life…”

Jub Jub claims that his time in prison made him a better person. “Prison is the only place that actually forced me to be alone, to reconnect with God, amadlozi (ancestors), no matter what. Because of the life that I was living, man, I had no time for what my ancestors wanted me to do,” he says. “I had no time with God … I regret all my actions. I don’t regret going to prison … because there’s a life lesson that I learned.”

Jub Jub is currently out on bail, facing three counts of rape, two counts of attempted murder, and one count of assault, brought by four different accusers. “We live in a society where rape is a pandemic, and it is sad how now guys are not scared of guns, not scared of knives, but we’re scared of just waking up being accused, you know?” Jub Jub says sincerely. “Right now, we’re just shielding from every woman.” Catch Jub Jub this evening at 21h00pm on Uyajola 99 on Moja LOVE (DStv 157)
