Thabang Thanyane who is professionally known as Jobe London has expressed disappointment in false rumors about him on social media.
The musician’s legal team issues out a statement, stating that anybody that spreads defamatory comments about him, will hence face the law.

He urged people to stop it.
Afterwards, the statement was shared on his social media page.
“After a thorough consultation with our client Thabang Thanyane, known professionally as Jobe London, it is apparent that conscious and legal issues were beached during the spreading of rumours in relation to a false death reported through various social media accounts.”
“It is further clear through the instruction of our client that previously, claims have been introduced to the effect of false rumours declaring an unknown illness.”
“It is a case of concern wherein such have cause prejudice and harm to the character, personality and psychological well-being of Mr Thanyane.”

“Henceforth, clarity and discretion shall be applied before any false commentary is expressed, it is, therefore, our client’s intention to ensure legal action in future should any individual or entity lodge defamatory comments.”
