Jub Jub asks for forgiveness

In his first radio interview since he was released from prison, Jub Jub opened up to Bonang on The Front Row about his experiences since he left penitentiary. 

Jub Jub who also made an appearance at Rhema Bible Church this past Sunday told Bonang that he was actually fearful of leaving prison on the day he was released.

"I remember I took a step out, and I took a step back in, and then I took a couple of steps forward, I looked at my girl and I just had fear.

 I don't know how to explain it man but I was just like scared to step out but at the same time scared to step back inside. It was really just a whole lot of mixed emotions."  Said Jub Jub

Jub Jub went on to clarify that he did not receive any sort of preferential treatment in prison as was reported by tabloids in the past.

"Prison doesn't care whether you're Jub Jub or not because there, it's another world, but I found a lot of great people inside. It's humans in there, it's not animals. There was really nothing easy about prison, it was really hard, it's everything that you think it is."

Jub Jub admitted that what kept him going in prison was not necessarily family, as family was there for support but during those lonely days and nights incarcerated, it was prayer and God that kept him going.

Since leaving prison, Jub Jub mentioned that the response he's been getting from the public has just been overwhelming but in a positive way.

"It's just overwhelming since I came out I've just been spending a lot of time with my family and I've just been trying to stay away from the scene. 

And it's not easy because people really wanted to see me and I was shocked at that, the shows I've been doing have not been easy as well, but I've tried to just spend time with family but the love I've been getting is really amazing because I did not expect this...I come from a nation that is really just forgiving..I'm blessed."  

Jub Jub went on to make it clear that him and Themba Tshabalala whom he was arrested with were actually not close friends. They were more of acquaintances that would meet up during shows.
