Everybody has been struggling to cope with the sudden passing of one of our brightest stars, Riky Rick. Some Mzansi celebrities have chosen to express their grief by celebrating his life, which they did in a beautiful all white party. 
Snippets of the party were shared online by various celebrities, especially Nomuzi “Moozlie” Mabena. The rapper has admittedly been through a massive shock at losing a fellow rapper and friend, but she has channelled the grief into honouring him the best way she knows how – by sharing his gift with his other loved ones in the industry. 

Many celebs were present at the party, of course including Moozlie. They all showed up dressed in clothes that honour Riky’s memory. His sense of fashion was diverse and edgy, but by far, the most signature look he had, was his Cottonfest regalia. It is, therefore, no surprise that many of the attendants dorned some Cottonfest outfits too, which we think is a rather sweet thing to do.
They also played a lot of his music – a very intimate way to connect with him and his soul, even though he is no longer with us. The best part of it, is that it provided them with a chance to hang out with and take care of each other, which is one important message Riky made sure to leave in many interviews leading up to his death. 

Have a look at some pictures from the event. 

Riky is set to be laid to rest on Tuesday 1st March, in a small private ceremony. The family released a statement saying that only a few people would be invited, but the ceremony would be streamed live online. 
His alleged suicide note was shared recently. According to sources, he left some beautiful words for his wife and kids.  

The note allegedly reads as follows: 

Dear Bianca

This pain is too much. I don't want you to blame yourself for my life being unbearable. You gave me more love than I deserved. Live your life. Do not hide the light you have me every day.

I am sorry for being the one who gives up but the pain I feel is too much to deal with. The voices in my head have never gone away. I wish I was stronger, but I am not. Please forgive me. I love you.

To his son Maik: 
"Follow your passion my son. The world is better than you can ever imagen. I love You."

And lastly to his son Jordan: 
"Jordan, the best thing that ever happened in my life. You taught me so much about life. Thank you for being so good to me. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me. I love you."
