Kwaito musician Brickz is back in court today.

Sipho Charles Ndlovu will appear in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court in connection with the rape of a 17-year-old girl.

Ndlovu, known as Brickz in the music industry, was denied bail on November 19.

"There is convincing evidence and likelihood that the applicant will intimidate witnesses," said magistrate Piet Kotze.

His supporters bowed their heads and others cried when he was denied bail.

Ndlovu allegedly raped the girl in March this year. He was arrested on November 1 and has been in custody since then.

Kotze said Ndlovu lied to the court about his previous conviction.

In his affidavit Ndlovu stated that he had no previous conviction, but the State submitted that he was convicted for possession of cocaine in 2007.

He was sentenced to four months with an option of a R1000 fine. Half of the sentence was suspended.

Ndlovu had submitted to the court in his affidavits that it was in the interest of justice that he be granted bail, arguing that the State did not have a strong case against him.

Kotze said there was no evidence to back up Ndlovu's claim that the State's case against him was weak.
