South African local Kwaito star Brickz has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for raping a 16-year-old girl- who is also his niece- in 2013.
The singer was sentenced at the Roodepoort Magistrate’s Court, west of Johannesburg, and his R50,000 bail which was initially granted in 2013 was revoked after the conviction.
Brickz’s wife, Nqobile Ndlovu, has reportedly been instrumental in assisting the victim in opening the case and has supported the victim throughout the case.
‘I’m caught up in the middle. I’m a daughter-in-law in the family and on the other hand I have to support the victim who is also a relative” she told Tshisa LIVE in September.
The news of Brickz’s conviction has caused his fans to react with mixed reactions.

#Brickz is going to jail for a long time. Judging from the notes being read. I like his music. He did the crime, he must do the time.
