Jub Jub and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala were both released on parole after serving four years, one month and one day in prison for culpable homicide in 2012.
The pair were initially sentenced to life for crashing into a group of children while racing their Mini Coopers in the street in Soweto on 8 March 2010.
Four boys – Prince Mohube, Mlungisi Cwayi, Andile Mthombeni, and Phomello Masemola – were killed. Frank Mlambo and Fumani Mushwana were left permanently brain damaged.
Maarohanye and Tshabalala were convicted of four counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder in 2012.
However, on appeal in 2014 the convictions were converted to culpable homicide and their sentences reduced from 25 years to eight years imprisonment each.
“There was a time after when I told myself I don’t want do it anymore. I don’t want to go back to the entertainment industry,” said Jub Jub in his interview with Bonang Matheba.

Hip Hop star “Jub Jub”, whose real name is Molemo Maarohanye, confessed that it’s his first time being out of the house. Everything is new and he’s overwhelmed by it all.
Jub Jub has recorded a song called “Ke Kopa Tshwarelo,” which translates into “Please forgive me”. The song features Ntate Tshepo Tshola whom he thanks for helping him by walking the painful journey with him.
#JubJub says “Ntate Tshola supported me. He was a father.”
