The letter was read out in court by the state prosecutor on Thursday morning.

The kwaito artist, whose real name is Sipho Charles Ndlovu, is being sentenced in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court today.

He was convicted of raping the then 17-year-old in 2013.

In the letter the rape survivor says her heart is bleeding of anger, sadness and brokenness.

Ever since the incident I have never felt the same and my life is not normal. I just became so down not participating in conversations with my surroundings. The things you did to me, I blame myself and I blame God.

But the truth is it is all your fault. You may be going to jail but know that you've broken me. I didn't live like a normal teenager and part of me has been taken away. You took away my precious gift.

And sometimes I just ask myself if I will ever live a normal life. Because what you did to me really affected me. I hardly sleep at night because and sometimes because I have dreams about you raping me.

And it is really heart breaking that I will never be able to be proud of myself because I feel like I am nothing. You really broke my heart now and I can't even trust anyone and trust is really important but you took that away from me.

You took away my happiness, I can be happy now but later I will get flash backs that will never go away. I will be having them until the end of my life. I wish you could put yourself in my shoes and feel the sadness in me right now.

Malume you have broken me deeply and I can't put everything that I am feeling into writing. But my heart is bleeding of anger, sadness and brokenness. I trusted you and treated you like my father.

When I cry at night I ask myself what I ever did for you to come and rape me. I may not be happy as I used to be before, but I want you to ask yourself every night, why is it that you raped your own niece. Why did you break your niece's heart? I wanted you to treat me like a daughter but you didn't.
