Rapper and producer, Riky Rick whose real name is Rikhado Makhado just secured a very huge deal. The “amacoins” hit maker was just announced as a new judge for the The Voice SA, a talent search competition where coaches go head-to-head to passionately mentor, inspire and nurture a fresh group of vocal artists from all over the country, all of whom come with the dream of being the next winning Voice. The voice is not about looks but just the voice hence the blind auditions in the iconic red chairs.
Proud to let everybody know that I’ll be joining season 3 of @VoiceSA 😊 Looking forward to building the greatest, freshest, most energetic and legendary team in the history of mankind as we know it. CLEAR YOUR SUNDAYS. COACH MAKHADO IS HERE. #TheVoiceSA #TeamRiky pic.twitter.com/fI0UMbUyA5

It was just a few days ago that MNET announced Tv Host Anele Mdoda as the Host of The Voice SA. “Ricky Rick has made his mark in the entertainment industry not only with his music but with his frugal and unique fashion style and choices. He is going to turn this show into his very own runway with his swag and hype and positive spirit…” said Lani Lombard, M-Net’s Head of Publicity.
With his millions of social media followers, unique blend of music styles, offbeat view of the world and wacky sense of fashion, Riky is the centre of attention wherever he goes.”
