He went on to explain that because of his celeb status‚ it was hard to tell people that he was not doing well.
"Being a “celebrity” its difficult to tell people I ain't feeling well. It's difficult to take time away because people expect you to be superhuman. I am not superhuman. I'm just another human being who wants to find some sort of peace and happiness in life. I'm sorry."
Riky would not comment on when he would return to the spotlight‚ only telling fans he would see them "later‚ maybe".
Friends and fans rushed to offer their support for Riky‚ with his bestie Cassper Nyovest even dedicating a song to Riky during a performance.
"This one is for Riky Rick...We love you‚ Riky. We need you‚ Riky‚" he told the crowd‚ before encouraging them to repeat the lines for Riky.
