KAMPALA | LIFESTYLE UGANDA — The rapper Riky Rick, whose real name was Rikhado Muziwendlovu Makhado, sent a suicide note to his family in which he asked them not to blame themselves for his unbearable life.
Bianca was ‘crying uncontrollably’ a few days ago after her husband died – a relative had said.
According to reports, Riky Rick, who reportedly suffered from severe depression, hanged himself with a rope on Wednesday morning in his music studio, a mere heartbeat away from his home in Waterfall Estate, north of Johannesburg.
Some social media users began circulating rumours after the news of his suicide spread that he had ended his life because his marriage to Bianca had gone south.
Riky Ricky’s two suicide notes depict a man who was devoted to his wife, Bianca Naidoo, and who believed that the world would be a better place without him.
Two notes, one addressed to singer Naidoo and one to his children Maik Daniel Makhado and Jordan Makhado, were leaked to local media outlets by someone in the singer’s inner circle.
In the notes, the ‘Sidlikotini’ hitmaker said he committed suicide due to the severe pain he endured, as well the voices in his head.
