Riky Rick recently announced a music festival that will feature upcoming young artist next to more established musicians.

It has always been this very successful rapper's 'thing' to help others, and that's what this music festival will do for young musicians.

According to Riky Rick, he always wanted to help others and became famous by accident.

I have always wanted to help other people. That has always been my nature. You know, I became a star by mistake. It was by virtue of me being able to rap over my beats. That then became my thing.

According to a report by TimesLIVE, Riky Rick never really felt that rapping was his calling, he didn't want fame.

My calling is to be a producer. Even in the projects that I have been working on and with the music festival, I am just a producer trying to put on a show and make a production.

Briefly.co.za gathered that Riky Rick wants to uplift others now and wants to help talented youngsters through his music label and as a coach on The Voice SA.

It's one thing to say you want to be there for the kids and help make them something, you can say that all you want, but it is another to actually put the work in and make platforms for them.
