"I dwell on the times we had": Mome Mahlangu reflects on losing Riky Rick

Earlier, Briefly News reported that The Cream Cartel star Mome Mahlangu is still reeling in pain following the death of her dear friend rapper Riky Rick in February.

Mome took to her Instagram page to share that although she has lost a loved one before, she had to seek the help of a therapist to help her deal with the grief.

According to TimesLIVE, Mome likened the pain of losing her friend to that of losing a brother or a sister. She said:

"I never knew the pain of losing a brother or a sibling. They say time heals all wounds but I still hurt about my dad since 1998, and now you. I guess we just soldier up and pray therapy gets us through healing."
