Popular musician jailed for 15 years for raping relative


South African musician, Sipho Ndlovu, known by his stage name Brickz , has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for raping a 17- year- old relative in 2013.
The victim who is now 21 said she wanted to end her life as a result of the trauma and became afraid of the musician.
Timeslive reports that in a ruling by Magistrate Baloyi, he detailed the testimony from the victim that she was bleeding after the incident as her hymen was broken.
The 17- year- old who was a virgin as of the time of the rape had been infected with a sexually transmitted disease unknown to her .
Baloyi said the victim was threatened by Brickz and ordered to clean up after he raped her .
Brickz had also threatened to kill her if she told anyone .
The defence argued for a lenient sentence , but Baloyi said Brickz has not shown remorse for his crime and the court had a duty to protect the freedom of women .
Wearing grey pants , a white shirt , and a blue jersey , Brickz was all smiles as he walked into court and posed for photos to hear his fate.
He has maintained he was innocent throughout the trial and had repeatedly said, “ the truth will come out.”
Brickz ’ legal team immediately said it would be appealing the conviction as well as the sentence .
Brickz ’ leave to appeal the conviction and sentence has been denied .
