Certified hit maker Riky Rick was surprised yesterday with a Double Platinum plaque for Buy It Out by his label Sony Music Entertainment Africa. Buy It Out was the first single released through his Cotton Club Records partnership with Sony Music Africa.
“I thought I was coming for a meeting and was surprised when I walked into the boardroom and the whole company was there applauding and my song playing out loud. I’m so thankful to Sony Music for taking a chance on a rebel like me. Here’s to more hits!” said a thrilled Makhado.
The single produced by award winning Gemini Major was immediately embraced by the streets and has become a fan favourite during his live performances.
“We’re Platinum Boys!” said an elated and pleasantly surprised Gemini Major.
Riky dropped his latest single ‘You And I’ featuring multi-platinum singer, Mlindo the Vocalist, on Valentine’s Day last week.
