Awarding-winning South African rapper, Riky Rick’s mother Louisa Zonda has shared moments of herself reaching the base camp of the talent mountain in the world, Mount Everest, 5354m above sea level. Zondo achieved the feat with his aunt Xoliswa Kakana while reflecting and connecting with their beloved son, Riky.

Sharing some snaps of her adventure on Facebook, Louisa penned down a heart-touching note in tribute to his son. She explained that she had laid a t-shirt with his son’s face, and 3 medallions symbolizing Bianca and his children’s prayers for him and his legacy for supporting young talents.

“Dear MaRiky, On day 11 of the trek – 2 April 2022 – I’m again waking up to the luxurious warmth of an electric blanket and my Nalgene hot-water bottle, at Khumbu Lodge, Namche. After several days without the ability to charge phones or send messages through communication networks, there is a tremendous amount that I could say, however, only a few words are necessary to convey its essence.

We finally reached Mount Everest Base Camp on Day 10 of the trek. Aunt Xoli and I were exhilarated! Among other things, I was caught up in the realization that at that moment I was standing 5364m above sea level, at this place that I had hoped to get to since 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic intervened.

The concrete immediacy of each moment’s walking, challenges and lessons had the effect of disaggregating the trek quite significantly, however arrival at Base Camp brought everything together. In this expansive state, MaRiky, I laid out something of a memorial for you at the Base Camp rock.

Your beloved wife, Bianca, and children – Jordan and Maik – had sent me off with a few memorabilia. Singing Methodist Xhosa Hymn 259 – Ndinik’amehlo Ndikhangele… I lay out a “Riky Rick…We Multiply” tee-shirt on the rock. Above it was a chain containing: (a) a medallion of St Michael – the archangel who among other virtues helps us in our hour of death – as a symbolic representation of Bianca and the kids’ prayers; (b) a St Christopher medallion representing my travel prayers for all of us; and (c) a medallion with a “MaRiky” engraving.

The last medallion is the beautiful product of young talented jewelers at the tattoo joint that your friends recently opened up in Braam Square. I laid it as your family’s commitment to carrying forward your legacy of caring for and supporting young people.

At Base Camp, everything came together in that amazing “contraction-and-expansion” pattern of the universe., MaRiky.

All I could do at this point was to keep bowing in gratitude, joy, peace, and hope. I could never find the words to clearly set out the depth of awakening that coming to Base Camp and communicating with you through ritual, was to me.
Thank you for helping me to come to such a knowing and feeling, MaRiky.

Thank you so much for enabling so many to connect with your family, your loved ones, and me, and to hold us up in immense love and generous support as we continue to grieve your departure from this realm of life together.
I love you MaRiky. We can never forget you. Mama”, she wrote.
