Jub Jub sues Moja Love for R100 Million
Following last week’s report that popular “Uyajola 99” host Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye had been fired by Moja Love , social media is abuzz with claims that Jub Jub is set to take legal action against the channel.
City Press first reported that a senior source at the channel had leaked information of Jub Jub being fired allegedly because he had failed to resolve a messy public dispute with his former business partner, Keabetswe Mokoena
Now, the musician looks set to fight back by using the channel for R100 million. This comes after Moja Love reportedly failed to pay him his January salary, which is said to be in the region of 500K.
“JUB JUB SUES MOJA LOVE – R100 MILLION,” Tweeted
@constitution_94. “Jub Jub wants Moja Love to swiftly pay him his Jan salary of R510 000. His debit orders are bouncing. He wants 2022 bonuses amounting to R50 000.
“He wants R72 million for royalties, for his face in billboards & song used on Uthando Nexolo.”

Moja Love’s head of channels, Bokani Moyo, has reportedly claimed that Jub Jub was, in fact, not a permanent employee and, as such, wasn’t fired.
“Jub Jub is an independent contractor and, therefore, cannot be dismissed as he is not a permanent employee of the channel,” he said.
“Moja Love is also not at liberty to discuss the contents of his contract as it is confidential and of a privileged nature.”
There’s been mixed reaction from fans on social media throughout the week. Below are some of the comments:
“There is no uyajola 99 without Jub Jub,” tweeted @Ace_Anele.
