As reported yesterday, a remorseful Jub Jub made the best of his time in prison by preparing an apology the way he knows best – music.
Shortly after the muso and his accomplice Themba Tshabalala were released on parole yesterday, the song was dropped on YouTube. They were serving time for the deaths of four Protea Glen, Soweto, pupils.
The duo were on a drag race which went horribly wrong when they ploughed into a group of schoolkids, killing four and leaving two others brain damaged.
Below are the lyrics in Jub Jub’s forgiveness song dubbed Ke Kopa Tshwarelo, in collaboration with musician Tshepo Tshola.
“Our Father who art in Heaven. Ke gathetse ke di phoso tse ke di entseng [I’m tired of the mistakes I’ve made]. Dikeledi tsaka di rotha ke lle chankaneng [my tears are rolling down my face in prison].
“Ke ikentse mathateng Wantsa seretseng [I got myself into trouble and You took me out of it]. My life was too fast, five to, ho ya di heleng [I was close to going to hell] .”
“Standing before you . all I need from you is guidance. Ngiwayenzile ama [I have done] careless [things], sniffing coke [cocaine], riding reckless. Thought I was doing best, living life to the fullest .”
“I’m grateful for the second chance. Now I know where my life stands, with a purpose. I just wanna tie up all the loose ends. No more wrong turns .”
Maarohanye also extended his apologises to his mother Jackie, wife and brothers for the pains he caused them.
Meanwhile, Tshola joins the chorus and says Maarohanye has asked for forgiveness. Tshola also asks people to give him a chance by accepting the apology.
Evidently, the muso is genuinely remorseful and hopes the country will forgive him. As expected, the apology was met with mixed reactions on social media.
