Earlier this year, Ntsiki Mazwai (who is popular for her frank social commentary) published a blog post recounting her rape by a then-boyfriend whom she identified by his first name.
She has since revealed, in a tweet, who that boyfriend was.
Messages of support have been pouring in from her followers all morning. She has also been lauded for her honesty by activist groups.
Brickz, whose real name is Sipho Ndlovu, was recently found guilty of raping his niece in 2013, who was sixteen at the time. He is yet to be sentenced.
Speaking to Times Live, Brickz lawyer refused to comment on the matter as his client is not yet aware of the allegations.
We have been unable to reach Mazwai by phone.
