Jub Jub Battles Moja Love Over Unpaid Wages

Musician Jub Jub is taking legal action against DStv channel Moja Love for not paying his January salary.

Jub Jub, whose real name is Molemo Maarohanye, is the presenter on Moja Love’s popular reality show “Uyajola 9/9”. The show helps individuals who suspect their partners of cheating to investigate their fears and confront them.

Jub Jub’s legal representation, Baloyi-Ntsako Attorneys, have demanded his January salary in a letter sent to Moja Love.

“Quite shockingly and to his detriment, he informs us that to date, he has not received his monthly salary for January 2023, and attempts to inquire were met with aggressive non-committal responses from both yourself as the CEO and the broadcaster legal adviser, one Advocate Nandi Ndaba.

“A business of this magnitude, such as that of the broadcaster, Moja Love, cannot be run as a spaza shop. It’s unprofessional, unethical and completely abhorrent. It is our informed and considered opinion that the treatment you are subjecting our client under, inclusive of non-payment of his salary, is unfair, unlawful, wrongful conduct and inhumane.”

Moja Love is not paying Jub Jub’s January wages as a form of punishment for allegedly insulting his female business partner Keabetswe Mokoena with vulgar language about her mother.

According to Sunday World, Jub Jub and Mokoena were in charge of organizing the Moses Kotane Arts Festival, which was supposed to take place at Moruleng Stadium in North West in December 2022.

The disagreement between Jub Jub and Mokoena emanated from the former’s decision to remove some artists from the lineup. Jub Jub reportedly unleashed a profanity-laced rant against Mokoena’s mother.

Jub Jub claims that Mokoena was taking advantage of young artists, misusing funds, and blackmailing stakeholders, as reported by The South African.

The alleged insults by Jub Jub did not go down well with MojaLove CEO Aubrey Tau, who grumbled that the rapper had violated the channel’s anti-gender-based violence policy.
