Defamed kwaito artist Sipho “Brickz” Ndlovu will be sentenced in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on October 17 for raping a 16-year-old.
The sentencing was postponed after arguments in mitigation of sentence by the prosecution and defence on Thursday.
The “Sweetie my baby” hitmaker was found guilty in July of raping the teen at his home in Ruimsig in 2013.
EWN reporter, Kgomotso Modise reports that the prosecutors said the artist should be sentenced to at least ten years to show men in society that rape should not be excused.
Modise adds that the Ndlovu's defence team argued that their client shouldn't be punished for being a celebrity.
