Master Makhado, Riky Rick, is not a stranger to love, he is after all a man of deep rooted Family Values. He comes fresh off the success of his inaugural Cotton Fest just over a week ago and he blesses us with a smooth number for your romantic bone.Teaming up with possibly one of 2018’s biggest breakout artists, Mlindo The Vocalist, Riky gifts us with “You and I” dedicated to the apple of his eye. You already know I’m swooning at the track. Riky takes an easy approach to the song rapping from the depth of his heart as he recognises his past mistakes and meditates on being a better man. I will admit, it’s the most beautiful and encouraging thing to hear an influential man like Riky bear his soul about honest issues in his music. Our generation needs this kind of sensitivity and self evaluation, especially if it’s reinforced on a high level such as this. Before I get lost in my thoughts - testament of how this song grips me - listen to Mlindo’s sweet haunting on the hook, as Riky Rick holds it down for all the honest men who are trying to be better partners daily. Happy Valentine’s Day to those who celebrate the holiday.
