Johannesburg - It's in his songs, on his album cover and all over his social media accounts- Riky Rick is one proud dad!

There was a time when the rapper could have been seen as a bad apple, but now things have changed and his son Maike is the apple of his eye.

The Boss Zonke rapper recently opened up to Move about his journey as a dad, telling them there was a time ,right after Maike's birth, where he cancelled all his gigs to be with his newborn son.

"Fatherhood has been amazing. I'm always learning something new all the time," Riky told the mag. "Maike has changed my life in a big way".

"Whenever I am away performing, I'm always reminded that this bundle of joy is waiting for me back home," he adds

While Riky's folks split when he was young, he says his dad was always there for him- a reassurance he wants to give his son.
