A senior source at Moja Love informed City Press that Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye was fired as host of Uyajola 9/9 two weeks ago via a letter. It is understood the channel will not be renewing his contract when it ends on 18 March.

“They didn’t want to fire him at first. They gave him the option of apologising to the woman who was organising the Moruleng event with him when they withheld his salary last month.”

The musician and TV presenter reportedly appeared in the Rustenburg Magistrates’ Court in North West on Wednesday, 22 February.

His lawyer, Ntsako Baloyi of Baloyi-Ntsako Attorneys, reveals that Maarohanye has asked him to file an application to overturn his boss’ decision in the Johannesburg High Court tomorrow, 28 February.

Ntsako Baloyi of Baloyi-Ntsako Attorneys confirmed that Maarohanye had been fired from the channel through an email:

“It’s not clear why he was dismissed. It’s unfortunate that he wasn’t paid his salary for January. When we enquired about it and demanded that he be paid, we received a letter stating that he had been let go.”

“We’re in the process of approaching the high court and we don’t want to discuss details at the moment.”

City Press reported in December 2022 that Maarohanye allegedly wrecked Moja Love’s relationship with one of its funders, the Bakgatla-ba-Kgafela tribal community (in December) and caused the cancellation of the Moses Kotane Arts Festival (which is organised by the channel) and threatened to harm business partner Keabetswe Mokoena.

The publication reveals that Maarohanye’s former bodyguard, Xolani “Mr X” Maphanga, who hosts X-Repo show has been tipped to replace Jub Jub on Uyajola 9/9

The Uyajola 9/9 host Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye was also allegedly fired by Moja Love in December 2021 after his interview with Podcast and Chill with MacG. 

This is after he talked about his former lovers Kelly Khumalo and actress Amanda du Pont using derogatory terms.

According to City Press, Maarohanye claimed that the mother of his child Kelly Khumalo had lured him away from popular du Pont, and gave unflattering details about those relationships.

Moja Love head of channels Bokani Moyo told City Press the Uyajola 99/99 host is an independent contractor and therefore cannot be dismissed. “He is not a permanent employee of the channel. Moja Love is also not at liberty to discuss the contents of his contract, as it is confidential and of a privileged nature.”

Tau had not responded to City Press’ requests for comment at the time of going to print, while Maarohanye was unavailable to comment to The South African.
