Jub Jub Born (Molemo Maarohanye) 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, they 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.

Recently In a Press Conference that was hosted by Jub Jub’s friend and television personality Somizi Mhlonho-Motaung and aired live on Soweto TV, DStv channel 251. It was announced that Jub Jub would be releasing a remake of his hit record, Ndikhokhele.

Ndikhokele 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.

During the press conference which flighted on Soweto TV and on his official Instagram account, the visibly nervous Maarohanye extended his gratitude to South Africa for being a “forgiving nation.”

He also thanked his family, friends and fans who supported him during that “difficult time” behind bars.

“I don’t do things according to social media, I don’t do things according to advisers, I don’t do things according to lawyers, I do things according to God’s time. So right is God’s time to do the right thing,” Maarohanye said.

In his speech, the star explained that he has invited a group of people including gospel superstars Pastor Benjamin Dube, Dr Rebecca Malope, Judith Sephuma, Lebo Sekgobela, together with Nathi Mankayi, Blaq Diamond and Mlindo the Vocalist to be part of the remake of his 2006 hit song, “Ndikhokhele.”

Jub Jub also revealed that he hasn’t been able to reach out to those families affected because of his parole conditions.

After finally finding it within himself to face what happened in 2010, an emotional and nervous Jub Jub spke of how he never thought the day would come where he’d be talking to media about the drag racing incident.

“To tell you the truth, it was the most scariest thing … because I really didn’t think it was going to happen. I never thought a day would come where I’d be ready to boldly speak to you guys, especially about the ordeal.”

Maybe this very same song is the one that’ll give the families a bit of closure.
