Julius Malema On His Absence From Riky Rick’s Funeral

If you have been why Julius Malema didn’t show up at the funeral of rapper Riky Rick, you’re not alone. Many were puzzled that the leader had not shown up for the funeral, especially as he had mourned the “Boss Zonke” muso in a tweet after his death.

In an interview with Tbo Touch, Malema detailed why he didn’t attend the funeral. According to him, he doesn’t attend the funeral of anyone who commits suicide. A personal rule. He noted that Riky Rick should have spoken out about what he was going through instead of plodding along alone and eventually giving up on life by hanging himself.

Malema noted he’s been through a lot himself, and suicide is never an option.

Ricky Rick had committed suicide in his studio in February, provoking shockwaves across South ’s entertainment circles. No one saw it coming even though the songster had given clues in his tweet that he wasn’t okay.

Only after his death was it revealed that he was going through a depressive face. Finally, he could no longer bear the bouts of depression and opted to take his own life, leaving behind a devastated wife and children.

Since his passing, fans and even celebs have been mourning him and recalling his impact on their lives and how much they would miss him.
