In December 2021, Jub Jub's family ruffled major feathers in a statement after they quoted Ntsiki Mazwai's defamation saga with DJ Fresh. This comes after they referenced how DJ Fresh sued Ntsiki for re-sharing a story on Facebook in which a woman had accused DJ Fresh of abuse and rape.
The two were embroiled in a nasty legal battle that saw DJ Fresh filing a lawsuit of R200 000 against her. At the time, Ntsiki released a statement to slam Jub Jub's family. In her scathing statement she said their cases were not the same:
“I would like to correct something. I lost my case because I posted about an alleged victim and she did not come forward to verify the story. It is not the same as Amanda, Masechaba and the other ladies who are the originators of their posts and stories. I feel it disingenuous to use my case to intimidate these women from telling their story," reads the statement.
Now, Ntsiki says she wants Jub Jub to apologize to her too, "Thank you Jubjub.... Can I also have an apology for your family dragging my name when trying to intimidate these women that was unfair and unacceptable. We grew up together I know your family, you know mine. What you did was trash to me," she tweeted.
In another tweet she came for Jub Jub's mother saying, "There was never any reason for Jubjub mother to include my name in her press statement.... Especially since her son was in the wrong. All it did was further emphasis the narrative that I'm problematic. They hid behind me. It's not ok with me.
It affects how people perceive me," she tweeted.
Ntsiki's demand comes after Jub Jub topped the Twitter trends list this morning after issuing a statement apologizing to the mother of his son Kelly Khumalo. He apologized for the distress and hurt he caused to Kelly following his controversial interview with podcaster Mac G.
A couple of days ago, Moja Love gave him an ultimatum to apologize to Kelly or face the wrath of not hosting the highly acclaimed TV show ever again. In a bid to swallow his pride, Jub Jub then issued a statement to make amends with Kelly.
He said in the statement "I would like to apologies for the distress, or hurt I may have caused her following not only the aftermath of my interview on podcast and chill with Mac G but also any other public opinion," he said.
Jub Jub says he hopes one day they will reach an amicable solution with Kelly and co-parent well. He also begged for an opportunity to be part of his son's life.
"You are the mother of my son, and I have a lot of respect for you. In me trying to set the record straight about me being an absent father to my son or me not caring or loving him, a lot of wrongs happened in a short space of time during that interview,
Mzansi is however divided over his apology. Others have called on the two to let bygones be bygones but others are questioning if Jub Jub's apology is sincere.
"@Collen_KM tweeted "I am glad Jub Jub apologized to Kelly Khumalo and his apology is very genuine I love it! My friends Jub Jub and Kelly must bury the hatchet we don't need more beefs within the celebrity fraternity our fans out there has their hands full right now."
@Boitumelofela95 "Jub Jub is only apologizing to save his job anyone who watched the MacG podcast could see how he has never respected her
Calling her a witch was just worse."
