Riky Rick’s longtime collaborators, Ganja Beatz, Audio Militia, and Lebo Machudi, pieced together the song using Riky’s own words from his social media posts.
The release of this special track is supported by the newly formed Riky Rick Foundation, ensuring that Riky’s musical legacy lives on.
The heartfelt track was unveiled in a tweet by South African entertainment blogger Phil Mphela, captioned:
“MUSIC: New Riky Rick song. Using AI and Riky’s own words from his social media posts, the song was woven together by Riky’s long-time collaborators Ganja Beatz, Audio Militia, & Lebo Machudi. The newly formed Riky Rick Foundation is behind the release of the track.”
Some Mzansi peeps were not keen on the song, calling it “weird” and “not right”; while some fans appreciated the initiative:
“Weird…don’t like this.”
” I hope they drop his unreleased music.”
In a statement from the newly formed Riky Rick Foundation, it was revealed that the song’s release serves a larger purpose beyond celebrating the late artist’s musical talent.
The foundation aims to raise awareness about mental health issues, an area that Riky Rick himself openly discussed, and support individuals and organizations dedicated to promoting mental well-being.
“We believe that ‘Stronger’ not only honors Riky Rick’s memory but also amplifies the importance of mental health awareness.
Riky’s journey has touched the lives of many, and through this song, we hope to spark conversations, inspire hope, and encourage support for those struggling with mental health challenges,” shared Bianca Naidoo, Riky Rick’s wife and spokesperson for the foundation.
