Johannesburg - Musician Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye, convicted of murder, will appeal the decision of a Soweto court that remanded him in custody until sentencing, the National Prosecuting Authority said on Monday.

"Maarohanye appealed the decision made by Magistrate Brian Nemavhidi in the Protea Magistrate's Court that he be remanded in custody until he is sentenced on 30 November, said spokesperson Phindi Louw.

The appeal will be heard by the South Gauteng High Court on Wednesday.

Louw said she could not provide more details as the NPA only received a notice about the appeal and the date.

Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala were found guilty on 16 October on four counts of murder and two of attempted murder.

Delivering judgement, Nemavhidi said: "The State managed to prove beyond reasonable doubt... that the accused are guilty on four counts of murder... [and] two counts of attempted murder."

He also convicted them of racing on a public road and driving while under the influence of drugs.

"The death of the youngsters occurred as a result of driving the two vehicles and as such the accused are convicted of driving their vehicles while under the influence of drugs."

Nemavhidi said that bail for both Tshababala and Maarohanye ended at the time the court announced its finding.

Louw said Tshabalala would not appeal the court's decision.

"We haven't received any notice that he [Tshabalala] will be appealing," she said.

Sentencing will take place on 30 November.
