The sad news broke yesterday morning, Riky Rick’s passing was published on the internet and it immediately started trending on Social Media, Twitter to be precise, this left many really concerned and in disbelief as there was no confirmation from family yet. This went on and on as a lot of celebrities like Pearl Thusi and more were tweeting things like ‘What is happening’ and other words of disbelief.
It wasn’t until hours later Makhado’s family finally confirmed the passing of the popular and talented South African Hip Hop act. It wasn’t until then many celebrities and fans finally accepted the news to be in fact genuine and not just the everyday celebrities’ death rumours, many South African music artists, actors and entertainers have paid their respects since on social media but Cassper Nyovest and his rival AKA kept mum, unlike most celebrities.
Cassper Nyovest for one had a special and close relationship with Riky Rick as they both helped each other become what they were today, close friends, amazing collaborators and of course, at some point they had their fights and disagreements like all public figures do, but the fact is these were something to each other and of course, Riky’s person would hit Cassper Nyovest more different than most people because of their relationship.
Rapper AKA also shared some bond with the man two when it comes to working together and even on some personal level, Riky and AKA even at some point shared a beef with Cassper.
Earlier this morning AKA Finally reacted on social media by sharing a picture with the man
Cassper Nyovest finally shared a video on his Twitter account with a heartbroken emoji showing how broken he is over his passing.
