TV host and hip hop artist, Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye, released the remake of “Ndikhokhele” and Mzansi can’t get enough of it.
Jub Jub has been topping the trend lists since his first official press conference, which he held recently on Soweto TV, where the star announced the release of the “Ndikhokhele” remake.
The song features Mzansi heavyweights such as the likes of Pastor Benjamin Dube, Dr Rebecca Malope, Judith Sephuma, Mlindo The Vocalist, Blaq Diamond, Lebo Sekgobela, Nathi Mankayi and Nigeria singer, T'kinzy.
The “Ke Kopa Tshwarelo” hitmaker also announced that all the proceeds of the song will go to the families of the children whose lives were lost in the tragic accident involving him, over a decade ago.
“I will never, no matter what, be able to erase (what happened) or try and buy a family (ies) ... it can’t happen, but I’m living with these scars every single day,” said Jub Jub.
He added: “... all the proceeds of the song will go to the families of everyone who was impacted in 2010.”
Maarohanye and his co-accused, Themba Tshabalala, were drag racing in their two Mini Cooper S cars in Protea Glen, Soweto on March 8, when they ploughed into six teenage schoolboys.
The accident resulted in the deaths of four of them, while two were left critically injured.
Although the muso has not been in contact with the families of the accident victims, due to his parole conditions, he thanked South Africa for forgiving him and accepting him back in the community, in spite of his wrongdoing.
“I would like to thank South Africa for being a forgiving nation,” said Jub Jub,“ said Jub Jub.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the muso expressed his gratitude yet again, as the “Ndikhokhele” remake is currently sitting on number spot on Apple music.
