Jub Jub's new reality show Uyajola 9/9 had its second episode aired on Sunday evening.
Just like any version of Cheaters, Uyajola, serves to expose infidelity in relationships and the dramatic confrontations take place on television for the whole world to see.
The show became the talk of social media from the first episode.
Some people enjoyed the show while others raised concerns about what happens after the cameras are gone.
Eusebius McKaiser engaged caller on the open line about their views on reality shows.
I am worried guys. I do not know is South Africa is ready for a South African version of Cheaters. I am really worried.— Eusebius McKasier, Show host
There is no psychosocial support, there are no lawyers around; it is just very raw. The cheaters are found and I think to myself what happens when Jub Jub is gone. What happens when he leaves the scene?— Eusebius McKasier, Show host
In agreement with McKaiser, Lebo questions what provisions are made for the family after the show.
We must really be careful when television is made at the expense of people. I am wondering if they can do that with a higher LSM when there is a chance of them being sued. I am also wondering if they are getting into poorer households because they know there won't be any consequences to the conduct that they have.— Lebo, Caller
Dumisani disagrees with Lebo and says these reality shows are called into the 'poorer' communities; the producers do not select the communities they visit.
The shows are called into communities. They don't select the people who write to them but it's people who chose to go to them.— Dumisani, Caller
Gustos says the show must continue and it is a reflection of South African society.
The show is on point. We are tired of these people eating behind closed doors. Our ladies cheat just as much.— Gustos, Caller
Mpho says these reality shows do not care about the communities and the aftermath of the episodes. She shares the experience her family had with another reality show Uthando Noxolo.
It is an abuse of power. They make it seem like they are helping the community. After they left, absolutely nothing happened. They didn't even help with social workers. We want to take it up; they made the situation worse. There is no ethical consideration with what they do.— Mpho, Caller
@Eusebius I am conflicted about Sis Lebo's stance on Khumbul'khaya - I think it offers a much-needed service (albeit the show profits from it but they do so after unifying families). I also think the host makes a big difference - Andile has handled Khumbul'khaya well.— Mxolisi (@_dictum_factum) May 27, 2019
Jub Jub & the bouncers deserve to get paid paid for this, this is hectic. #Uyajola99— Karabo Mokgoko 🦄 (@Karabo_Mokgoko) May 26, 2019
