Rapper Molemo ‘Jub Jub’ Maaronhanye’s performance during his first television interview on Thursday morning set the internet on fire.
The rapper who was released on parole in January appeared on SABC’s Morning Live, where he spoke out for the first time about his time in prison, being haunted by the fatal 2010 accident and thanked the nation for being forgiving.
“I’m grateful to be given a second chance so that I can play my part. I believe that I am a changed man and I can confidently say that I am not the same man that I was,” he said.
The rapper also detailed how prison “sharpened” his character and changed him in a big way.
Jub Jub also performed his latest track Ke Kopa Tshwarelo ((Please Forgive Me) on the show.
The track was released just days after Jub Jub was released from prison and forms part of his plan to make a mega musical comeback.
Jub Jub and his co-accused Themba Tshabalala were sentenced to eight years in prison for culpable homicide, after crashing their cars into a group of school children in 2010. The accident left four children dead and two others brain damaged.
The pair were released on parole after serving four years of their sentence.
