Riky Rick Joins Prestigious Artists On The 2015 Cape Town Nu  World Festival Line-Up



KwaMashu-born Rikhado Makhado, popularly known as Riky Rick, will join over 27

artists at this year’s Cape Town Nu World Festival over the Mandela Day weekend, 17-

18 July.

The accomplished producer, writer, rapper and actor has had a phenomenal year and

has enjoyed major success with hit singles “Nafukwa”, “Amantombazane”, “Boss Zonke”
