When Jub Jub was sentenced to 25 years in prison after being found guilty of murder, many thought that he’d be living the not so glamorous life of an convict. However, the kwaito star is said to be enjoying certain privileges excluded from other prisoners. This includes him allegedly having two cell phones in his possession.
According to City Press, a visitor who had attended the prisoner’s graduation ceremony overheard one of Jub Jubs friends boastfully showing off chats he had with the kwaito star via Whatsapp.
Apparently the last message Jub Jub sent to his friend read: “Are you coming dog?” - in reference to the graduation ceremony.
The officials at the Sun City prison have vehemently denied that Jub Jub has been receiving any special treatment but admit that the musician was passionately involved in organising gigs occurring in the prison.
Pictures have been circulating around Twitter showing Jub Jub delivering motivational talks and performing on stage for his fellow inmates. One of those pictures was posted by DJ Sbu with an accompanied caption that read “Jub Jub giving a positive talk to amajita” (the guys).
Another photo appeared on Twitter with Jub Jub posing with his ex-fiancé and actress Amanda du Pont whom he dumped for singer Kelly Khumalo. Amanda is currently dating rapper Siyabonga ‘Slickour’ Metane.
Do you think Jub Jub’s been receiving special treatment?
