Zim hiphop rapper R peels has issued an apology via his twitter account to Ricky Rick’s fans and family for comments he made towards the issue of mental health and depression.
The apology came after the Chitungwiza rapper suffered online backlash for saying that the late Ricky Rick, who is alleged to have committed suicide does not deserve his respect and acted in manner that is cowardly.
The tweet which he has since deleted insinuated that suicide is demonic and everyone has some form of depression and it should not serve as a basis for committing suicide.
On Wednesday, Sunday world confirmed that hip hop star Ricky Rick had died aged 34 from an apparent suicide.
In a cryptic message he posted on Twitter before the rumours of his death surfaced on the timeline, Ricky Rick seemed to allude to the fact that he was going to take his life.
