Kwaito star and rape convict Brickz’s has requested his wife Nqobile Ndlovu to release his two children to visit him in prison on alternate weekends.
Members of the Ndlovu family went to Newcastle, Kwazulu-natal, to plead with Nqobile to allow the children to visit their father, Brickz, real name Sipho Ndlovu, in prison. Brickz, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after being found guilty of raping a 17-year-old relative in 2013.
A source close to the family, who also did not want to be named for fear of victimisation by the family elders, said Brickz was struggling to cope in prison after he was not allowed to see his children.
Brickz and Nqobile’s friend, Boipelo Mokoena, said that she found it hard to believe that the couple was no longer on speaking terms. Brickz was not available for comment.
“They were husband and wife but were also like friends. Sipho was there when his last child was born and he had an amazing relationship with his daughter.
“Now that he isn’t even allowed to speak to her on the phone, you can tell that it’s breaking him,” said Mokoena.
The rehabilitation process can be a dark and lonely process we hope Bricks heals and gets his children to visit him as they are a strong source of his strength.
