Family and loved ones mourned and buried Riky Rick. However, on Friday they all gathered together to celebrate his life.
At his his memorial service, Cassper Nyovest, Black Coffee and Sizwe Dhlomo all stole the show, because of their beautiful words they shared about the rapper.
Starting off with Cassper Nyovest, his former best friend, shared some words about Riky and one can tell just how fond he is of Riky Rick.
Cassper Nyovest started off by stating how they met.
“Riky and I met on Facebook. The same way Riky Rick reached out to all the kids. At one point I was also just another kid from Maftown [Mafikeng] and it wasn’t really easy to move in Johannesburg, but he still had the time for me and he did that for hundreds of people after me.
“I then ended up forming a relationship with him, a friendship where we would not only talk about music but we would talk about life.
One of the things that I loved about Riky was how honest he was. Riky would tell you the truth”. Cassper Nyovest said.
He then said he always preferred Riky Rick to sing more than rapping.
