South Africa’s music industry s in mourning right now, and among those mourning is Family Tree boss Cassper Nyovest. The songster is a close friend to Riky Rick, who committed suicide yesterday February 23.
Riky Rick and Cassper Nyovest were very close o so close at some point that they were more like brothers. But then a fissure erupted in their relationship. It cannot be determined how they fell out, but they did.
And Cass was of the view that the relationship cannot be repaired.
And then, unexpectedly, Riky Rick had taken his own life. The news of his death reverberated across South Africa. And Cassper, hitherto lukewarm about his relationship with the “Boss Zonke” rapper, shared a 43-second clip of Riky Rick speaking.
He used no words for the caption, just a broken heart emoji.
