He's always in the spotlight and most of the time, it's for the wrong reasons.

Most of the time it's South Africans slamming his show Uyajolala 9/9, but now, he's in the news after he was accused of threatening and insulting his business partner.

Jub Jub, real name Molemo Maarohanye, has denied the allegations levelled against him by his business partner, Keabetswe Mokoena.

The duo were working together on a line up for the Moses Kotane Arts Festival over the weekend, but things took a different shift when Keabetswe alleged that Jub Jub hauled threats and insults at her.

In a series of screenshot published by The Citizen, Keabetswe accuse Jub Jub of threatening and insulting her in a WhatsApp group, where he allegedly referred to her as “loose” and a “b**ch,” The Citizen reports.

“I am scared for my life because I do not know what he is planning to do to me when this is over,” she said.

The Uyajola 9/9 host took to social media to deny the accusation made against him.

He says he had to remove himself from the preparations of the Moses Kotane Arts Festival when he learned that his business partner was not being honest.

“When I started the project, my vision was to uplift the arts and mend broken dreams in the community of Moses Kotane, where a lot of the young people have lost hope. I thought that collaborating with a certain individuals would make the vision tangible, but it certainly didn’t.

“As [a] boomerang effect I had initially wanted to exclude myself from the preparations leading up to the event due to issues of corruption, misuse of funds and exploitation of artists that were brought to my attention.”
