Popular Uyajola 9/9 host Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye has been accused of failing to pay R125 000 he owes to Business person Ellen Nkutha.
Speaking to City press, Nkutha said that she cashed out her pension money and paid for Jub Jub's legal fees in 2011. This after the musician struggled to foot his legal bills.
Nkutha said before Jub Jub was jailed, she accommodated him and Kelly Khumalo in her house and gave them money and groceries. Nkutha said she and Jub Jub’ s mother, Mama Jackie, were friends but fell out after she accommodated Kelly Khumalo in her house.
" I welcomed them into my house with warm hands. I used to buy groceries for them because at that time they were going through financial strain. That is when Molemo approached me to [ask that] I assist him with his legal fees.
"Now that I'm not working, I want my money back. I decided to come out publicly, not to ruin his name or reputation, but because I've exhausted all efforts to get back what is due to me as he has been ignoring my calls said Nkutha.
celebsossip.co.za has learnt that Nkutha made the payments directly into Motloung's account in four installments made between March and June 2011.
The first payment was R30 000 on March 16, the second of the same amount went through on May 23, R20 000was deposited on June 20 and the last installment was paid on June 21.
Nkutha claims that since Jub Jub was released from jail in 2017, he has been avoiding him.
"Every time I call him as soon as he recognizes my voice he hangs up the phone, This is sad because when i helped him he promised to pay back the money. I trusted him based on the long standing relationship I had with his parents. But I am hurt that, after I genuinely helped him, he failed to pay back especially after I was there for him during his difficult time," the disappointed Nkutha said.
She said when Jub Jub was in jail, she went to demand her money from his father but her told her she must get her money from Jub Jub.
"When Molemo was in prison, I went to demand my money from his father, but he told me that Molemo was old enough and he was responsible for the payment, not them as parents."
In September 2019, Nkutha said she went to Jub Jub ‘s employers, Moja Love to ask for help with getting back her money back, and they advised her to serve them with a garnishee order.
" I felt it was going to be a tedious exercise and I just left it alone. I was hoping that he was going to have sympathy and pay me after that", she said.
Recently Jub Jub was a guest on Somizi's coking show – 'Dinner at Somizi's , during which he said that, when he came out of prison,he made sure he looked after all the people who were there for him during his tough times.
"Unfortunately, I am one of the people he has forgotten to look after," Nkutha lamented.
