- Convicted rapist Sipho "Brickz" Ndlovu feels his time in prison has made him musically untouchable
- The kwaito singer says he had time to work on material that is very honest and personal
- Brickz remains insistent that he is innocent of the crime he was found guilty of earlier this year
Sipho Ndlovu, better known by his stage name Brickz, was released from jail on bail of R80 000 pending his appeal against his conviction.
In 2013, Brickz was found guilty of raping his 17-year-old relative and sentenced to 15 years in jail.
The kwaito singer now claims that he is untouchable, at least musically speaking.
TshisaLIVE reports that Brickz feels his time in prison helped him reflect on the things that matter most in his life.
He added that he worked on material that is personal and honest. He had time to work on his craft.
"You get time to look at the things that matter most in your life. I think musically, I am untouchable now."
The kwaito singer stated that he was released on bail to earn money to cover his legal fees and that music and performing is all he will focus on.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Brickz will be performing at the annual Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards nomination party.
This has left South Africa in show and a sour taste in most people’s mouths. The thought of letting a convicted rapist perform, is beyond the thought of the public.
Brickz insists he is innocent despite being found guilty. He also claims to have taken courses in prison to help better himself.
