It’s official, longtime Da Les and Glitz Gang collaborator and insanely talented producer has joined the company of Reason, Mr Perfecto, Zakii Ibrahim, Samthing Soweto, Nova and label boss Tumi Molekane at Motif Records.
Rumours circulated the net last week after Riky released the artwork for his first single from his yet untitled album titled ‘Amantombazana’ via Twitter, which featured the Motif logo in the corner of the image. A short while later Tumi (@Tumi_Molekane) changed his profile image to a picture of Riky Rick captioned ‘Motif Welcomes Riky Rick to the family.’ Riky finally confirmed this rumour himself via the social network, responding ‘It’s good to be home.’
It will be interesting to witness the sound that will come from Riky under the mentorship of Tumi considering that, for most of his career, the 25 year old musician has been, musically speaking, a chameleon, [successfully] switching sounds accommodate the cadence of whichever artist of any genre he happened to be working with. We’re not worried though, Motif is yet to make a wrong move. Congratulations to both Ricky and Motif, we look forward to that #work.
Riky Rick and Okmalumkoolkat will be performing the smash record live for the first time at SWAY in Sandton tomorrow.
