Jub Jub also ruffled feathers with the comments he made on the podcast regarding Amanda du-Pont and Kelly Khumalo.

He also spoke his truth about award-winning vocalist Samthing Soweto snubbing his request to feature on the remix of Ndikhokhele remix.

Jub Jub was clearly touched that the “Akulaleki” singer turned him down, while speaking on the creation of the remix, he made his feelings known.

Well, Samthing Soweto isnt bothered much by Jub Jub’s remarks and is going to continue singing the national hymn that nobody owns.

The “Lotto” hitmaker shared a video of himself singing the famous song on his Twitter account.

Fans and individuals in the industry in the comments praised the singer’s talent. Even award-winning rapper Cassper Nyovest chimed in and reminded Samthing that his voice is “magical”.

The two have collaborated on music, so Cassper knows what he is talking about.

The ‘Uyalola 9/9’ presenter was so hacked by Samthing Soweto’s decision that he made shady remarks about the way he sings.

Jub Jub during the interview recalled how he called the individuals he wanted to work with on the song and immediately they were interested in working on the project.

“The phone kept ringing. Then we get a text, no we are not interested,” said Jub Jub.

"Then the likes of Samthing Soweto arrive that sing like Prince, and do the things they do that's, f**ked up. It's a bad attitude and I don't care. Him, his manager, if they got a problem they must come to me.

“I don't care but what they did was wrong," said Jub Jub.
