According to the South African Police, he hung himself with a rope in his apartment in North Johannesburg, South Africa.


Riky Rick was discovered by his colleagues at about 8.30 a.m. on Wednesday. They attempted to relocate him for medical attention while he was still alive, but he died on the way.


Supporters and acquaintances of the artist reacted on Twitter, alleging he had been suffering from depression and that his most recent tweet shows his bad mental condition was very serious.


His post has read, ‘I’ll return a stronger man. This land is still my home’.


We advice anyone having suicidal thoughts to get help on time. Those that imitate artistes should not imitate their bad choices too. Though it is not yet clear whether he really killed himself, he would not be the first artiste to do so if he did.
People believe that money and prominence make people live longer lives, yet occurences like this have proved them false. Actora and actresses are merely regular individuals, as are other renowned people.
