Black First Land First (BLF) president, Andile Mngxitama revealed to the news publication that he plans to take Molemo Maarohanye (Jub Jub) to court, following his Xhosa comments on his Uyajola99 TV show recently.
For those of you who didn’t know, the Uyajola99show is a South African version of the US show Cheaters that assists suspecting partners to catch their cheating partners.
He said: “I’ve never seen a nation efebayo nje [that is promiscusous] ngaMaXhosa. I’ve never seen as well a nation that is loving nje ngaMaXhosa. I’ve never seen a nation that forgives nje ngaMaXhosa. I’ve never seen a nation with an attitude nje ngaMaXhosa and I’ve never seen a stubborn nation nje ngaMaXhosa. In a nutshell, the nation is just too much.”
The show has received mixed reactions from Mzansi. While some have called for it to be taken off air, others have commended it for exposing infidelity.
But the musician turned reality TV host, Jub Jub landed himself in hot waters after his harsh comments about Xhosa people.
Mngxitama responded to Jub Jub’s remarks by saying he would ask his party’s central committee to demand an apology from the presenter, failing which he would take it to the Equality Court.
“Just saw Jub Jub’s vile tribalist attack on the Xhosa nation. ‘m going to ask the central committee of BLF to demand an apology and Jub Jub to be given lessons in black consciousness or we take Moja Love to the equality court. We can’t allow such naked tribalism. We can’t normalise self hate,” said Mngxitama to the Citizen.
After the remarks, many social media users called for Jub Jub’s show to be cancelled.
One Facebook user, Buntu Bani said: “Even if we are loving and whatever nation but you can’t say siyafeba. Think again bro, this statement needs an apology. We can take it further I’m telling you.”
Ricardo Litb said: “Some people do not love Xhosas. I wonder enzani MaXhosa [what they did], uninzi lwabo benza ngathi [most of them act like[ they do love us kanti baya pretend, if you can listen ku Jub Jub uyasithuka qha esibambe ngesandla [he is insulting us while holding our hands]."
Just over a week ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Molemo Maarohanye, famously known as Jub Jub, is back in the Mzansi spotlight. Jub Jub is the presenter on the new drama filled TV show, Uyajola, and this has brought a lot of attention back to him.
Jub Jub rose to fame at an early age and took the entertainment industry by storm. After facing time in prison in 2012, Jub Jub was released on parole, a new man.
