Cape Town – When you think about rappers you don’t really think that they have a softer side.

But Riky Rick, real name Rikhado Makhado, just proved that stereotype wrong.

The Family Values rapper took to Instagram to share a beautiful photo of him and his son along with a note on the importance of family and friends.

He wrote: “Growing up I thought happiness would come in the form of money, fancy clothes or cars. I thought maybe it would come through being accepted by my peers or being praised by people who have never met you. All those things are cool extras but they can be replaced when lost.”

He added: “As we grow up and experience real life we start to discover that true happiness comes through Love. Love for your friends. Love for your family. Love for your children. Love between two people can be difficult but when done right brings us the greatest joy.

“Love for life is important because unlike most things life can not be replaced. Let’s cherish the moments that make us smile with the people we love. Let’s treat them with dignity and respect. Things will not be easy but let’s never give up easily. Family First. Always.”

We love the way you think, Riky.
