Brickz, real name Sipho Charles Ndlovu, was arrested on 1 November for allegedly raping the girl in Honeydew on March 26.
City Press reported that it was the Kwaito star’s wife, Nqobile Ndlovu, who reported him to the police after she noticed the girl acting strangely.
A source close to the investigation told the newspaper the teenager was a regular visitor to Brickz’s home in Ruimsig. The state’s case apparently includes the allegation that Brickz entered a bedroom where the girl was eating her lunch. He allegedly pushed her on to the bed, raped her then threatened to kill her if she told anyone.
According to City Press, Nqobile suspected something was amiss with the girl when she started acting strangely. After questioning the girl, she eventually revealed it was the Kwaito star who raped her. Both Nqobile and the girl’s father reportedly went to the police station to report the crime.
Nqobile did not respond to the newspaper’s attempts to get comment. The National Prosecuting Authority’s South Gauteng spokesman, Phindi Louw, declined to comment.
