KWAITO singer Brickz will spend Christmas at home after over a month in custody.

The popular star, who is accused of rape, appeared in the South Gauteng High Court today to appeal Magistrate Piet Kotze’s decision to deny him bail. He was granted bail of R50 000.Brickzcourt jpg

According to a source, the condition of his bail is that he musn’t interfere with state witnesses. Brickz was still in police custody pending payment of his bail.

A source told Daily Sun that after Brickz –  real name is Sipho Ndlovu –  appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrates Court yesterday, he was granted leave to appeal. The source said the appeal was kept a secret to avoid media attention.

The Tjovitjo hitmaker told the court in a previous appearance that he didn’t have any previous convictions whereas he was convicted for possession of cocaine in 2007.

He was sentenced to four months with an option of a R1000 fine. Half of the sentence was suspended.

But Brickz said he thought a fine meant he was paying an admission of guilt fine. Kotze called him a liar. Brickz’s lawyer Isaac Mokgobi declined to comment. Brickz’s relatives came to court yesterday wearing T-shirts bearing his face and the message: “Be Strong, Malume”.

  • Brickz was bust for allegedly raping his 17-year-old niece. The matter was postponed to 9 January.
