Rapper Jub Jub made his first appearance as a presenter over the weekend on Uthando Noxola. The Moja Love (DStv channel 157) show is about mending broken relationships, forgiving those who’ve wronged you and asking forgiveness of those you’ve wronged.

In an interview with eNCA, Jub Jub said he felt he was the right person for the job. “I think to be able to lead someone else into the right direction, to advise somebody, I would have had to experience it myself for it to be genuine.”
And while many feel the ex-convict has no right to be the show’s presenter, some feel he’s the perfect person for the job as he’s had to ask for forgiveness in the past.
On Sunday’s episode a man wanted to ask for forgiveness for knowingly impregnating a woman (the condom burst while they were having sex and he continued without telling her) then leaving her to raise the child alone. The emotional man told Jub Jub he’d had suicidal thoughts and that the only thing keeping him from taking his own life was the thought of his son growing up without his father – like he did.
In an effort to comfort him, Jub Jub said he could relate to his love for his child. The rapper also said he hasn’t been allowed to see his own son. The two men shared an emotional moment together.
As usual, Twitter had a lot to say about the show:

i can't imagine the pain of seeing the guy who killed your child presenting and making money while your baby is silent in a grave ???? #uthandonoxolo— G. Dlamini (@Gugu_D_) May 20, 2018
We need to learn that its not about our feelings but it’s about the kids. Can we put the kids first before our own feelings nje #UthandoNoxolo— ??? ???COMFY-B (@comfortcomfyb) May 20, 2018
