South African Rapper, Riky Rick Defends SA Rappers With American Accent

riky rickSA Rapper, Riky Ricky has defended South African music artists with an American accent in a recent interview with Ubunifu Space. Of recent, several South African rappers have been accused of trying to sound American with A-Reece being the recent target last month.

“My accent is different from Cassper’s accent. Emtee’s accent is different. Everyone raps differently. AKA’s accent is different also. It is the difference in the way they speak. The way we speak English is not the same way we speak Zulu. Even if I spoke English, people wouldn’t know where I am from,” Riky Rick said.

The rapper, however, admitted that he wasn’t hurt by it, but says other rappers are hurt. “It hurts people. Because that is a diss back home. ‘It’s not America here. You sound American’ is a diss,” Riky Rick added.
