Jub Jub has been teasing his press conference all week and many wondered what the big announcement would be about and finally, the much-anticipated day arrived.
Some of the Uyajola 99 star’s fans even thought that he would be opening a church. However, that wasn’t the case – we have more than enough churches in South Africa. Surely we don’t need more?
The Press Conference was hosted by Jub Jub’s friend and television personality Somizi Mhlonho-Motaung and aired live on Soweto TV, DStv channel 251. During the conference, it was announced that Jub Jub would be releasing a remake of his hit record, Ndikhokhle. This new version features four of Mzansi’s gospel heavyweights including Benjamin Dube, Nathi and Dr Rebecca Malope. All the proceeds made from the track will go towards all those families that were affected by the tragic accident he caused back in 2010.
During the announcement, it was also revealed that he hasn’t been able to reach out to those families affected because of his parole conditions.
After dropping the record. Most of his fans agreed that the song is an instant banger. As much as tweeps were touched by the gesture from the You Promised To Marry Me, host, they felt that the announcement could’ve been made through his social media. However, maybe that approach would’ve never made the same impact or attracted as much attention had the announcement only been made through social media.
Born Molemo Maarohanye, Jub Jub burst onto the entertainment scene as a Hip Hop artist. Way before the Uyaola 99 fame. Sadly, his success was short-lived after the rapper and his friend Themba caused a tragic accident after drag racing under the influence of drugs and alcohol. As a result, four innocent children were killed and two survived with brain damage.
In 2012, Molemo and friend were both sentenced to 25 years in jail for murder and other offences. In 2014 their sentences were reduced from 25 years to 10 years and on January 5, 2017, they were both released on parole after serving over four years each.
Ndikholele is his biggest song to date. At the time of its release, it was playing on every big radio station across South Africa. It even won him multiple awards. Maybe this very same song is the one that’ll give the families a bit of closure.
