There are times when it’s good to try something different. Jub Jub Maarohanye took time off from music to be the host of reality show, Uyajola 9/9. Jub Jub’s opinion of the show is that it did a lot of good for the country.
The reality show is based on the US series, Cheaters. Since the show launched in May, it has come under scrutiny with suggestions that it depicted black people in a negative light. It is the opinion that the show did more harm than good!
Briefly.co.za learnt that speaking to TshisaLIVE, Lindiwe Mbonambi, spokesperson for Moja Love, confirmed that the show will officially be off air from Sunday. Mbonambi said that the series has come to an end and will be taking a break. She did say that the return of Uyajola 9/9 would be announced.
The fans of the show were taken aback when the news broke. On Thursday, Jub Jub acknowledged through Instagram that it had come to an end. He was happy with the run they had and commented that they got the country lit.
TshisaLIVE reported this week that the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of SA (BCCSA) had received objections with regards to a specific episode that featured alleged violence and strong language. It showed a woman assaulting her husband for supposedly cheating on her - with the woman her husband was allegedly cheating with joining in. The husband did receive help, but that only happened later on in the altercation.
Jub Jub is not happy with the negativity, as he feels that the show saved homes and families. He went on to say that it entertained fans.
There have been suggestions that the show was scripted. Jub Jub says that they were not scripted to do anything other than bring the best out. It is a known fact that the truth hurts, and they made sure it was delivered to viewers.
