Jub Jub’s career

Jub Jub is better known for his role as a presenter on the Channel O show. He has always been a natural performer and his family fondly remembers him as a toddler singing and doing side-splits. He first came into the public eye at the age of 10 when he took part in an Inkomazi sour cream advert. As a teenager he won a place in a Performing Arts school and was later seen in shows like Jam Alley and Channel O. He then changed his focus to music, specifically hip hop and as a Rap MC. Jub Jub’s rise to fame was cut short when he and a friend were arrested for killing four school children in a drag racing incident. The two received 20 years, which was later changed to 10 years, with 2 suspended.
