Accidents and tragedies are parts of life. Some of them are avoidable some of them are not. Either way, there’s the sensation of pain, the loss and the feeling of hopelessness. Tragedies come in different hues.
For muso Jub Jub tragedy struck on March 8, 2010, when, drunk and drag racing he had crushed four pupils to death. The tragedy shook South Africa. Jub Jub was sentenced 25 years for the murder of the high school pupils.
Four years later, in 2014, a rainbow would appear in the horizon of his own darkness as his conviction for murder was overturned to culpable homicide. But this didn’t make him a free man. It merely resulted in the reduction to 10 years of his conviction.
Four years later the rainbow would turn into a brilliant light as the “Amabele” mastermind was released on parole. His rehabilitation had begun. Being out of prison afforded him some moments of introspection, taking stock. His passion for music was still fiery, of course, but there were also other callings on his gifts…
Jub Jub is heading over to the big screen as television host on Moja Love. Jub Jub would be running a television programme called Uyajola, a redact of America’s Cheaters, a show dispensing tales of partners cheating on each other.
The first episode of Uyajola aired a few days ago and had many actually drooling, with many others praising Jub Jub’s presenting skills and his ability to maintain decorum among interlocutors.
However, there were those who were upset he should make it to television after his conviction for culpable homicide. Some consider it an insult and a slap in the face of the parents whose children he had killed while driving under influence.
