Since Moja Love's Uyajola 9/9 show arrived onto Mzansi's screens, it has been an instant hit topping the trends list, however, not everyone is impressed with the show.

Hosted by Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye, Uyajola 9/9, has become a problem for some people because of their fears of being caught red-handed by the star and his cameras. Uyajola 9/9 is the South African version of popular American show Cheaters

The controversial reality show is currently on a production break, however, it has been hit with backlash following an episode that featured violence and the use of strong language.

Viewers have taken their frustrations to the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of SA (BCCSA) following the dramatic episode.

Speaking to TshisaLive, BCCSA registrar Shouneez Martin said that broadcaster MultiChoice, which airs the Moja Love channel, has recieved complaints of gender violence, strong language and violence levelled against the show.

"At this stage, I can confirm that we have received complaints and that we will consider the complaints as soon as we receive MultiChoice’s response on the matter.”

Multichoice has confirmed receiving the complaints.

Moja Love spokesperson Lindiwe Mbonambi said that the production break has nothing to do with the recent complaints.

“It doesn't mean that it is the end of the show because of people's complaints to the BCCSA. The production company has chosen to take a short break from filming as they have been doing it for some time," Mbonambi told TshisaLive.
