- Mzansi muso Brickz trended on Twitter after a video of him singing in jail surfaced online
- Brickz is serving his time after he was sentenced to 15 years for raping a 16-year-old relative
- Social media users shared mixed reactions to the viral video of the Kwaito musician
Brickz is trending on social media after a tweep shared a video of the disgraced star singing in jail.
Brickz was found guilty and sentenced to 15 years for raping a then-16-year-old relative at his home in Ruimsing back in 2013.
In the clip, the Kwaito musician leads a prison choir in song. He is wearing his full orange prison uniform in the video. The choir was shooting a music video, it seems.
Tweeps have shared mixed reactions to the footage. Some people praised Brickz for joining the prison choir while others said they miss him. Check out some of the comments below:
"There's something very calm about him."
"Imagine adding DJ Fresh and Euphonik, this would be a banger."
"He even gained weight."
"I hope he is rehabilitated and comes back to be a positive member of society."
"This video is a preparation for parole, this is a publicity stunt, rehabilitation is a long and hard process, I doubt he is near ready to be trusted around small girls and vulnerable women."
"Hope he comes back a changed man... respect to him for admitting and serving his time, we miss you Brickz Mabrigadoh."
In other entertainment news, Briefly.co.za reported that MacG recently criticised celebrities who practice "selective" cancel culture. The host of 'Podcast and Chill with MacG' came out guns blazing in his latest episode posted on YouTube recently.
The star called activists out, especially Mzansi celeb who cancel people who are not close to them but keep quiet when other celebs within their circle are being dragged on social media.
MacG and his crew were called out by celebs such as Thando Thabethe and Rami Chuene when they were dragged for making insensitive jokes about the LGBTQI+ community.
"These celebrities jump on because they just wanna trend and jump on whatever outrage is happening at the time."
MacG slammed Thando Thabooty for not saying anything when DJ Fresh was trending a few weeks back when a woman accused him of raping her. MacG believes Thando should have called Fresh out because she's a GBV activist.
He told her to be consistent. MacG even went as far as saying the stunner should stick to "posting nudes on Instagram" because her podcast numbers are "horrible".
