South African artiste, Brickz (real name Sipho Ndlovu) who was found guilty of raping his niece last year has been released on bail, Monday.
This comes after the bail of R80,000 set by the judge last week was posted.
According to his producer, Grey Mafumbu, his company, Step Ahead Production, paid for Brickz’ bail. Mafambu stated that their paying the bail was a show of support for the artist, who they believe is innocent.
Brickz is reportedly reunited with his family after the bail was paid earlier in the day.
Brickz was found guilty of raping his niece at his home in Ruimsig, Mogale City, in November 2013, and was sentenced to 15 years in jail.
The kwaito star will forever be the bogeyman for the young woman he raped in his home when she was 17 years old.
Now 22, the young woman isn’t at peace, her father tells DRUM during an interview.
