Busiswa shares her last gift from Riky Rick in a touching final tribute: “He left us all with something”

Briefly News reported that the late Boss Zonke rapper Riky Rick will definitely be remembered for his kindness. Many people who spoke at his memorial at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg described the rapper as a selfless man who put the needs of others before his own.

Cementing Riky Rick's giving spirit, singer Busiswa said the last time they met, the stylish rapper gifted her his jacket. Riky Rick made a mark on the fashion scene with his eccentric style.

Busiswa last met Riky Rick at an event in Polokwane, and she asked to touch his fluffy pink jacket because it was beautiful.
