Mzansi Kwaito artist, Brickz, also known as Sipho Ndlovu, surprised and divided social media users with a photo that revealed a significant weight difference. Brickz was sentenced to 15 years in prison for the rape of a 17-year-old relative in 2013. During the trial, it was revealed that the victim was a virgin at the time and had suffered physical harm.
Following the rape, Brickz reportedly threatened the girl with death if she spoke about the incident and instructed her to take a bath. The victim also contracted a sexually transmitted disease during the assault. Brickz, 42, gained fame with popular hit songs such as “Sweet Ma Baby” and “Let Right.” He was discovered by DJ Cleo, a renowned South African producer, and released his debut album, “Face Brick,” in 2005.
A recent photo of Brickz sparked discussions on Twitter, with users speculating about the cause of his weight gain in prison. Some suggested it could be due to depression, while others argued that he was simply enjoying himself by indulging in food and rest. The photo also showcased Brickz wearing what appeared to be a Gucci belt, adding to the curiosity surrounding his circumstances.
