Riky Rick reportedly left suicide notes for his wife Bianca Naidoo and 2 kids, Maik and Jordan before he committed suicide on Wednesday morning.
A source informed Sunday World that before ending his life the star prayed for his family’s forgiveness and understanding for taking his own life.
The rapper also asked for his family to not blame themselves for his decision to commit suicide.
Riky Rick struggled with depression for years and couldn’t live with it anymore.
Makhado hanged himself with a rope in his music studio garage where his wife and his management team found him.
The letter to his wife reads:
“DEAR BIANCA, THIS PAIN IS TOO MUCH. I DON’T WANT YOU TO BLAME YOURSELF FOR MY LIFE BEING UNBEARABLE.”
“THIS WAS THE GREATEST PERIOD OF MY LIFE. YOU GAVE ME MORE LOVE THAN I DESERVED.”
“PLEASE DO NOT BLAME YOURSELF. LIVE YOUR LIFE. DON’T HIDE THE LIGHT YOU GAVE ME EVERY DAY.”
He also apologised for giving up and said he’s sorry for being the one who gave up.
“THE PAIN I FEEL IS TOO MUCH TO DEAL WITH. THE VOICES IN MY HEAD HAVE NEVER GONE AWAY.”
“I WISH I WAS STRONGER BUT I AM NOT. PLEASE FORGIVE ME. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. BE HAPPY. SMILE. EVERYTHING IS OKAY NOW.”
He pleads with his son to follow his own passion:
“THE OTHER NIGHT MAIK SAID HE WANTS TO BE JUST LIKE ME. NOT BETTER IN THE SENSE OF USELESS ACHIEVEMENT, BUT BETTER AS IN CHOOSING THE RIGHT PATH FOR HIS HEART.”
“FOLLOW YOUR PASSIONS, MY SON. YOUR WORLD IS BIGGER THAN ANYTHING YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE. I LOVE YOU.”
He tells his daughter Jordan that she’s the best thing that’s ever happened to him.
“JORDAN, THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED IN MY LIFE. YOU TAUGHT ME SO MUCH ABOUT MYSELF.”
“THANK YOU FOR BEING SO GOOD TO ME. THANK YOU FOR BEING SUCH AN INSPIRATION TO ME. I LOVE YOU. I’M SORRY.”
“KEEP EACH OTHER CLOSE. LOVE EACH OTHER. PLEASE DON’T BLAME YOURSELF. I CANNOT TAKE THE PAIN. I LOVE YOU. “
