Johannesburg - Kwaito musician Sipho Charles Ndlovu appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on Thursday accused of raping a 17-year-old girl.

The matter was postponed to July 8 for Ndlovu to raise funds to pay his legal team.

Ndlovu, known as Brickz in the music industry, was arrested in November for allegedly raping the girl.

The rape reportedly occurred in March last year.

After an unsuccessful bail application in the magistrate's court, Ndlovu's legal team went to the high court where they secured him R50 000 bail in December.

During bail proceedings, Ndlovu's lawyer indicated he intended pleading not guilty. - Sapa
