Hip hop artist Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye will appeal his murder conviction in the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg on Thursday.

After a lengthy trial, Maarohanye and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala were each sentenced to 25 years in prison by the Protea Magistrate's Court last year.

They were found guilty of murder, attempted murder, driving under the influence of drugs and racing on a public road.

They crashed their Mini Coopers into a group of schoolboys in Protea North, Soweto, on 8 March 2010.

Four boys were killed in the crash, and two others were permanently brain damaged.

Maarohanye has tried unsuccessfully numerous times to get bail ahead of his appeal.
