Riky Rick’s Suicide Note Revealed
More details are emerging on how and why “Boss Zonke” hitmaker Riky Rick took his own life. Contrary to claims that he took his life because his marriage to Bianca Naidoo was about to collapse, the suicide notes he left showed otherwise.
In one note addressed to his wife, he noted that the pain he was feeling was too much to bear, and he urged her not to blame herself for his life being unbearable.
His note reads in part:
“I’m 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’m not. Please forgive me. I love you so much. Be Happy. Smile. Everything is okay now,”
He also addressed another note to his two sons, Mike and Jordan. He apologized for taking the path of suicide while also urging Maik, who had wanted to be like him, to follow his dream.
He described his other song Jordan as the best thing that ever happened in his life, and thanked the kid for being so good to him.
Riky Rick’s death was so unexpected because just the day before, he was bubbly and spoke happily with his wife on Instagram Live. South Africans have been memorializing him since.
