JOHANNESBURG - Kwaito star Brickz is scheduled to appear in the Roodepoort Magistrates Court today.

Brickz, whose real name is Sipho Ndlovu, is accused of raping a 16-year-old in March, but the rape was only reported in October. Ndlovu was arrested and charged on 1 November.

After an unsuccessful application for bail in the Roodepoort Magistrates Court, his legal team headed to the High Court where they secured bail of R50,000 in December.

Ndlovu's legal team has indicated that he intends pleading not guilty to the charges.
