Popular rapper and reality show Uyajola99 host Jub Jub Maarohanye is at loggerheads with his bodyguards over nonpayment of salaries worth more than R20,000.
So intense was the squabble between the two parties that the guards are now ratting on the ex-convict, spilling the beans about some of the alleged shenanigans they experienced while working with him.
South African gold medal-winning bodybuilder and Alexandra's Ikasi Gym owner Tumi Masite and Larash Base claimed that they were fired after they refused to play video games with Jub Jub until the wee hours of the morning.
The guards, who served as the rapper's VIP protectors from May, claim that Jub Jub made them perform obscure duties, including insisting that they stand in front of the toilet door whenever he went to the bathroom.
These allegations emerged during an interview with Masite and Base at their tattoo parlour in Alex.
They complained that they were even owed money for tattoos they inked on three of Jub Jub's female friends, as well as for an Uber ride for his female friends while they were working in Durban.
Jub Jub, alleged the private protectors, made them do extra work that was not part of the deal, including driving one of his female friends to work at Mall of Africa.
The woman, who works for one of the retail stores at the mall, declined to comment about her relationship with the TV presenter.
"I have nothing to say to you, and stop asking me questions," she said.
Jub Jub told Sunday World that the allegations against him were informed by jealousy from people who were not happy with his return to the entertainment game.
He said he did not want to challenge the claims by the guards, stating that they were "adding spice".
