Good news for Uyajola 99 fans as Jub Jub is reportedly making a comeback to the well-liked Moja Love program. Jub Jub, whose real name is Molemo Maarohaye, was involved in a contentious legal dispute with the DSTV channel and demanded that they pay him R100 million in damages.
According to the publication, Jub Jub has reportedly already started filming the new season of Uyajola 99, which is scheduled to premiere in July. For the benefit of viewers, it appears that both the channel and Jub Jub have agreed to let the past lay to rest. On Sunday nights, Uyajola 99 became South Africa’s guilty pleasure, but its popularity is said to have dropped after his abrupt firing.
Similar to the American program Cheaters, the program exposes adultery and catches unfaithful couples in the act. According to Sunday World, Bokani Moyo of Moja Love verified that the rapper was back on the program. Further disputing that Maarohaye was truly fired, Moyo claimed that they had taken a break from production.
“Remember productions go on a break and once they return, the talent is contracted again, depending on a number factors determined by the channel’s management. Jub Jub never left. Uyajola was on a break and now that we have started filming, he is working again. As mentioned earlier, productions go on a break and when they start shooting again, the presenter takes their place again,” she said.
He was reportedly sacked in February after a woman he had been working with accused him of abusing her.
The woman in question is Keabetswe Mokoena, the musician’s business partner. Mokoena accused him of verbal abuse, harassing, inflicting emotional distress, and “substantial harm to her professional reputation and business” in December of last year, which led to their breakup.
Additionally, she charged the Ndikhokhele hitmaker with attempting to profit from a community project they worked on through the NGO Raah Foundation, which was given a government contract to organize the Moses Kotane Arts Festival, that was scheduled to take place at the Moruleng Stadium in North West on December 3 and 4, 2022. Later, the event was postponed.
