TV personality Jub Jub has reportedly had two of his contracts terminated following charges of rape, assault, attempted murder and kidnapping. According to Sunday World, the rapper – real name Molemo Maarohanye – will no longer be appearing on SABC 1’s hit soapie Uzalo, as well as Mzansi Magic’s Clash of the Choirs.
Uzalo producers, Stained Glass Productions, reportedly sent him an email confirming their termination. The company said it was withdrawing it’s agreement with him due to instructions from the broadcaster.
Nokuthula Dlamini, who is the soapie’s line producer, confirmed that the Ndikhokhele hitmaker will no longer be part of the cast. We were still in the process of signing a contract with him when the SABC raised concerns about the allegations that were levelled against him. We decided to refrain from going ahead with him. If the cases are dropped, to my under- standing, we might review our decision..
“You would understand there was and will still be a lot of noise around him and that was not going to be good for as a brand,” she said.
The publication reports that Uzalo had agreed to pay him R20 000 on call basis and R160 000 on global call basis. These fees reportedly did not include tax, allowed deductions, transport and special needs trust.
The Uyajola 9/9 host was also reportedly hired as the host of Clash of The Choirs. However, the show’s representative, Venessa Tloubatla, pretended to not know about such developments.
He was reportedly supposed to get R200 000 for the gig. His lawyer, Ntsako Baloyi, requested for the case to be postponed to 8 November.
According to the SowetanLIVE, there are four complaints in the case. These are: Amanda; songtress, Kelly Khumalo; and Radio and TV host, Masechaba Khumalo. The fourth woman is believed to be a relative of the musician.
