In the wake of the recent sentencing proceedings of convicted rapist and musician, Sipho “Brickz” Ndlovu, another alleged victim – this time a well-known celebrity – has come forward to “break her silence”.
In July 2017, fallen Kwaito artist, Brickz was found guilty of raping his 16-year-old niece at his Ruimsig home back in 2013 and now, outspoken poet and musician, Ntsiki Mazwai has come out to allege that she too was once raped by the kwaito star.
Taking to Twitter, Ntsiki posted a shocking six worded tweet and used the hashtag #BreakTheSilence. “I was also raped by Brickz,” said the alarming tweet which garnered hundreds of comments from users.

On July 8, Ntsiki penned an extract on her blog titled “Dark Thought“, which she says is taken from her Masters thesis. On the blog post, she details how a “skinny man with dreadlocs” – who she goes on to call “Sipho” – had pinned her down in the backyard of his house and forced himself on her “one dark night”.

Hundreds of Twitter followers and users have commended the poet for her bravery and have gone to sympathise with her, while a handful of trolls have, however, chastised the star for the tweet.
