South African rapper Molemo Maarohanye has been jailed for 25 years for his part in a horrific car collision which left four children dead.

Maarohanye, also known as Jub Jub, was convicted of the murder of four children and the attempted murder of two others after he crashed his vehicle into the group while drag racing under the influence of drugs in Soweto, Johannesburg in 2010.

During a hearing at Protea Magistrates Court on Wednesday (05Dec12), Maarohanye and co-accused Themba Tshabalala were each sentenced to 20 years imprisonment for the murder charges and four years behind bars for attempted murder.

The judge added an extra year onto their prison stints for use of drugs, driving under the influence of drugs and racing on a public road.

Maarohanye, who was one of South Africa's most high profile hip-hop stars until the incident, will appeal his sentence.
