Riky Rick’s death: DJ Tira under fire

While Mzansi is still reeling from the news of the unexpected death of award-winning rapper Rikhado Muziwendlovu Makhado affectionately known to many as Riky Rick, tweeps are bullying DJ Tira.

Riky Ricky topped the Twitter trends list this morning after posting a cryptic tweet that reads “I’ll return a stronger man. This land is still my home.” Celebs and his close friends took to social media to share pictures of him with broken heart emojis.

Initially, many people thought it was a publicity stunt to get people talking on the internet but his family later confirmed that he is no more. DJ Tira took to his Twitter account to share a series of Tweets expressing his shock at the heartbreaking news. He tweeted:

“No one cares about us! Asinakiwe! [we are ignored]”

“Kunzima but sifela ngaphakathi [we die inside]”

“Depression is real! It’s bad!”

“I pray for all the fathers fighting to be heroes for their families. Stay strong my brothers”

Following his tweets social media users dragged him and said he is always making everything about himself. One Tweep slammed the trolls for dragging Tira and pleaded with them to be kind and considerate in this difficult period.

“Not Twitter bullying Tira again, tomorrow they’ll be saying RIP. Y’all never learn, the guy is crying out for help too, irrespective of what he did or said yesterday, be kind and try to be considerate. Just because someone has money does not mean they are ok,” he tweeted.

Others are calling for the parody Chris Excel Twitter account to be deactivated.

Riky Rick’s family has since released a statement confirming his passing.

“He was deeply loved by his family, friend, and the entire entertainment industry. His love for family, friends, and community is well known. Riky’s nurturing and developing of young musical talent is well documented and will forever be remembered.” They did not reveal circumstances behind his untimely passing and requested privacy during this difficult time.

According to Sunday World, the rapper allegedly committed suicide at his estate home in the north of Joburg. The publication claims that a source revealed that the 34-year-old’s management found him still alive in his home around 8 AM today and rushed him to the hospital, but he died on the way to the hospital. – ZAlebs
