Kelly and Jub Jub: we’re keeping the faith

A YEAR ago they were one of South Africa's most famous couples: young, successful and in demand. The media was buzzing with speculation that singer and actress Kelly Khumalo was pregnant and the father of her unborn baby was none other than hiphop star Jub Jub.

But the "It" couple remained mum on the details of their relationship, leaving the public clamouring for more – it seemed they could do no wrong. But that changed one sunny afternoon on Monday 8 March 2010 when a tragic accident on a busy Soweto street turned Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye into one of the most reviled people in the country.

Everyone knows the story: Molemo and his friend Themba Tshabalala were allegedly drag-racing on the crowded Mdlalose Street in Protea Glen when one or both of them lost control of their Mini Coopers and ploughed into a group of school boys, killing four of them instantly and leaving two fighting for their lives in hospital.
