Throughout his life, Riky had been open about his struggles with depression, which he had faced since a young age. His untimely passing came just a few months before his 35th birthday, leaving many to mourn the loss of a talented musician and a kind soul.

AKA and Riky Rick’s friendship began to blossom after AKA had a falling out with Cassper Nyovest, although AKA himself denied that this was the reason for their friendship.

Riky was known for avoiding conflict and drama, and AKA appreciated this quality in him. The two collaborated on several musical projects, including the song “F.R.E.E.” in 2019 and contributing verses to Costa Titch’s hit “Nkalakatha” in 2020.

Unfortunately, in February 2022, Riky Rick took his own life, and just a year later, in February 2023, AKA was killed in a shooting. Their time on this earth has come to an end, and their legacies will live on through their music and the memories they have left behind.

Old pictures of the two late SA hip-hop superstars are trending, and people are wailing that they have been reunited by death.


“My legends. I loved Riky Rick that I went over all social media outlets because I didn’t believe and today I’m still crying because of AKA.”
