Riky Rick is seen together of the simplest hip hop artist in South Africa , but his music has been once shamed.
It’s not new that artists songs get cancelled by people, however, Riky’s experience was more heart-breaking.
During a recent interview on his show, LAB LIVE, while conversing with Focalistic, he said he traveled to l. a. , and upon getting there, he gave out his project, which he worked on for several years.
The rapper says some guys at the LA studio listened to and said his sound was fake, as he isn’t sounding like an African.
“They said to me: ‘Yo! i assumed you're from South Africa . Why does it sound such as you try to sound like Nas?’
“I was heartbroken because this is often the music I even have been performing on my whole life, and that they were saying i used to be trying to sound like I’m from LA or ny .
“That was the foremost disappointing, heartbreaking feedback I had ever received. Basically they told me within the nicest way possible that I’m fake,” he said.
Riky felt bad but yielded to their advise.
He said the primary beat he made was “Amantomabazani”, as he tried proving to himself that he isn’t fake.
