The talented TV host Molemo “Jub Jub” MaarohanyeTV, who reportedly hasn’t been paid his R510 000 January salary by Moja Love could have been earning R6 million annually as he was also the co-producer of the popular cheating show, Uyajola 9/9.

City Press also reported on Wednesday, 1 March that he is suing Moja Love for nearly R100 million for breach of contract, unpaid salary, and royalties following the channel’s decision to dismiss him as host of Uyajola 9/9.

Sunday World revealed on Sunday, 26 February that the presenter was fired from his job after a heavy dispute with his bosses over the foul language he allegedly used when addressing his female business partner.

The woman in question is the musician’s business partner, Keabetswe Mokoena. The pair had a fall-out in December last year after Mokoena accused Jub Jub of verbal abuse, harassment, emotional stress, and “substantial harm to her professional reputation and business”.

The channel reportedly fired him a few days after he sent a letter from his attorney, Terrence Baloyi, from Baloyi-Ntsako Attorneys, demanding payment of his January salary.

A source told the publication: “The CEO [Aubrey Tau] has an obligation to protect the integrity and reputation of the business. Jub Jub is a good presenter but he is not bigger than the brand Moja Love.”

Another source told City Press that they didn’t want to fire him at first as they gave him the option of apologising to the woman who was organising the Moruleng event with him when they withheld his salary in January.

According to The Citizen Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye’s former bosses Moja Love claim that the Uyajola 9/9 host was not fired as he is not a permanent employee.

The head of channels, Bokani Moyo said the star is an independent contractor and, therefore, cannot be dismissed as he is not a permanent employee of the channel, and his contract was set to expire on 18 March 2023.

“Moja LOVE is also not at liberty to discuss the contents of his contract as it is confidential and of a privileged nature.“

A breakdown of why he is suing the channel nearly R100 million: 

  • R50 000: City Press reveals, Maarohanye’s contract with Moja Love stipulated he gets paid a performance bonus of nothing less than R20 000… the channel reportedly owes him R50 000 as he hasn’t been paid performance bonusses in 2021 and 2022.
  • R74 million: Maarohanye is also demanding R2 million in damages for an expected renewal of his contract and a further R72 million in royalties for his song used by the channel as a soundtrack for the show he initially hosted called Uthando Noxolo. 
  • R18 million: The presenter reportedly also demands R10 million for the usage of his images on billboards without his permission and an additional R8 million as he expected his contract to be extended for another five years.

Neither Maarohanye nor Moja Love was available for comment at the time of publishing.
