Rapper and ex-convict Jub Jub who’s currently out on parole is reportedly in debt, owing money to a woman that paid for his lawyer Ike Motloung during his trial after the crime he committed. The woman remained anonymous but revealed that she is a family friend and is 55 years old. The woman went on to say the he paid the legal fees after the family of the rapper failed to pay up.
The businesswoman said that he paid the bill because the family asked her and she agreed since she has been a family friend since the 70’s. “I agreed because I knew the family well and had been friends with them for years. The family was confident that Jub Jub was going to win the case.”
According to Nedbank statements seen by Sowetan, the money was paid into an account belonging to “I Motloung” in four instalments.
The first payment was of R30000, transferred on March 16 2011. The second, R30000 went through on April 23 2011. There was a further payment of R20000 on June 20, and the last instalment of R45000 was paid on June 21.
The woman carried on saying that since Jub Jub was released on parole last year, she has been trying to track him down without success. She said she almost got a breakthrough when Jub Jub was performing at Rhema Bible Church.
“I asked the church to give me his manager’s contact details and they gave me Pablo Sehloho’s contacts. Pablo gave me the numbers of a woman called Angela, whom he said was Jub Jub’s wife. I communicated with both of them about the issue until they decided to block me (from their phones). I really want Jub Jub to pay back my money.”
Motloung (Lawyer) confirmed that there was a woman who made payments for the musician to his account. “I know the woman made those payments more than once. One thing I knew was that the woman was not a relative or Jub Jub’s mother.”
The Lawyer further revealed that the woman wasn’t the only one owed by the family of Jub Jub. “I am owed legal fees by the sisters and the mother, and the matter is in high court,”
Jub Jub and his friend Themba Tshabalala were convicted of culpable homicide for the death of four children in December 2012.
