Actress and TV presenter Bontle Modiselle has taken to her Instagram account to pen words of comfort for Bianca Naidoo, the wife of the late rapper Riky Rick's.

The rapper and Bianca had two beautiful kids and they won the hearts of  many people with their relationship goals. The couple was completely inseparable and we can all imagine the pain Bianca is experiencing at the moment after losing her other half.

In the wake of the rapper's untimely death, Bonnie expressed her deep and profound sadness. She said she wished it was just a dream and prayed for healing within her heart

"I’m so sorry Bianca, for everything. I’m so sorry for your children, your family. I wish this wasn’t your reality. The thought of what you’re left to face is unbearable. I wish it was different. No words can be enough. May you be wrapped in our prayers for you. God, may your presence be felt now more than ever. Ho bohloko empa holokile," she said.
Rikhado Muziwendlovu Makhado was born and bred in KwaMashu, KwaZulu-Natal. He was a force to be reckoned with in the industry. He was also founder and owner of Cotton Club Records and Makhado Makhado Agency.

Throughout his music career, the rapper released hits songs including Amantombazane, Boss Zonke and Sidlukotini. As a mentor, he helped the younger generation of artists navigate the music industry and he made sure they reached their full potential.

His passing has has sparked an ongoing conversation on mental health where social media users encourages men to speak up about their struggles with depression and mental health. They are also calling on everyone to be kind with each other.

AKA has also taken to social media to pay tribute to the rapper and said at least four people he knows have committed suicide, with four of them being men.

"Let’s keep it 100. The last 5 people I know who took their own lives, 4 of them are men. I’ve seen so much suicide over the last year I can’t even feel anything anymore. I’ve spoken to a lot of people, some of them said “He just got a bag from African Bank blah blah etc … “ … that tells you everything you need to know about this fucked up, fake ass algorithm world we have created for ourselves to live in.

He encouraged the public to go church and start having dialogues about mental health: "Riky went to Hilton, he grew up around money. I hope that very soon we can address the issue of how damaged and broken the men in this country are. We have no one to talk to, we just pat each other on the back and say, “get on with it, be strong my boi” … but in reality, we are traumatised. Generational trauma passed down to us. Ladies, we are not perfect by any means … but damn, we are crying out for your approval, your love and affection. Please, can we RESET and go back to FAMILY VALUES?!. Can we (myself included) start going to Church Again. 

Please, can we start some sort of dialogue about MEN in this country because it’s our duty to protect you, to provide and care for you. We cannot make this thing work without each other. We are crying out for your help. This is so traumatic. Please, let’s not forget about us. We not perfect by any means but damn …. Look at the stats, we are taking our own lives at record highs. Something has to change," he wrote.
