The latest episode of "Uyajola99" leaves a bitter taste on many of the viewers’ mouths, with some even calling for Jub Jub’s immediate return to the show.

On Sunday, Moss Makwati, "Ujayola99" co-presenter, didn’t receive a warm reception after the back-to-back episodes of the show were dubbed "staged and boring" by the show's loyal viewers.

The show kicked off with Ayanda who suspected that his partner of six years, MaLoveBite was cheating on him. Ayanda, Moss and the team of "Uyajola" arrived at MaLoveBite’s home, only to confirm Ayanda’s worst fears. 

But what made viewers suspicious and started accusing the show of being staged was how Ayanda and MaLoveBite who are both sangomas reacted during the show. MaLoveBite and his new lover, were supposedly praying when Ayanda and the "Uyajola99" crew plunged into MaLoveBite's home. 

And to make the scene even weirder, a group of initiates were dancing and singing outside while MaLoveBite and his boyfriend were “praying inside the shack.

The confrontation was cold to mild, many including Somizi commented on Twitter that something was missing in the show.

He tweeted:"As.a.huge fan of the show #uyajola99 I'm disappointed about tonight's ep. I shud have followed my guts not to watch when I saw that jub wont be presenting. Something is so off nje about the entire series up....feels and looks very staged...."

He added: "Also as a gay man I can tell u for free that if this scenario was authentic. Trust me hell wud have  broken lose. There will be dust all over. Cameras broken.we wud be on ep 2 of ep1 . Phela eyamadoda ayipheli. Kudlalwa ngathi la. #uyajola99."

While many shared Somizi's sentiments, others started dragging the star for stereotyping gay men.

While some were not feeling the show, others enjoyed the drama:

The second episode got viewers more confused as the 32-year-old complainant already knew her 62-year old bae was cheating. Many asked what was the point of the show then as the show aims to expose peeps that are cheating on their partner.

Jub Jub was only off for one week and tweeps are calling for his return to show.
