The untimely passing of South African rapper Riky Rick has deeply affected millions of South Africans as he was a brother to his industry peers and a mentor to many rising stars.

One of those is rapper J Molley. The rapper revealed that Riky called him yesterday to check on how he’s been doing. He wishes he could have said something to get through to him.

“Riky literally called me yesterday to check up on me. Said he was dealing with similar issues. I wish there was something I could’ve said to get through to him but I know how it feels to be in that space of darkness. No one can get through to you.

“You’re just waiting for that moment that you get the courage to finally end it all. Grateful to have known this man, was a true inspiration and believed in all of us more than we did. It’s your time to rest king, I’m proud to have known you. Sending my condolences to his family,” posted J Molley.

"Boss Zonke! || My heart is bleeding for your family. Today, their lives change forever. They will never be the same again. The rest of us? We’re crying for you too. We’re confused, it hurts, it’s heavy. 

"But man, the love, light and impact that you were and will forever remain for us, the kids and everyone else that crossed paths with too far and wide is undeniable.
