JOHANNESBURG - Kwaito star Sipho 'Brickz' Ndlovu will have to wait another two weeks before being sentenced for the rape of a teenage girl.

The kwaito star was yesterday found guilty of rape by the Roodepoort magistrates court.

The incident is believed to have taken place at the musician's home in Ruimsig, on the Westrand in 2013.

It’s understood his wife Nqobile Ndlovu assisted the victim in opening the charges against her husband.

Sentencing in the matter will begin on 20 July while the kwaito star remains in custody.

The NPA's Luvuyo Mfaku said, “Mr Ndlovu was convicted in Roodepoort and the R50,000 bail that he was on was revoked, hence he will remain in custody.”
