Riky Rick’s wife not legally recognised after rapper dies without a will

Bianca Naidoo is not recognized as Riky Rick’s wife by the Joburg Master of the High Court and Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi, as she’s been refused to be appointed as executrix (female executor of an estate) of his properties.

According to Sunday World, Bianca drags the aforementioned entities to court as they have denied her access to her late husband’s assets.

The late rapper who committed suicide in February 2022 at his Waterfall studio, died without a will.

Describing her relationship with the hip-hop icon, Naidoo wrote in the court papers that they were “partners in a permanent opposite-sex life partnership, with the same or similar characteristics as a marriage after hitting it off on 26 May 2013”.

Bianca revealed that she had a daughter in a previous failed marriage and conditioned Riky that until he was committed to their relationship with a future, he won’t meet her daughter.

“The deceased expressed that he wanted a long-lasting future with me, and we began living together with my daughter as a family during the same year of 2013 at my residential property bought for me by my parents in Bryanston, Gauteng,” read the papers.

They cohabited between 2013 and 2022 in a “conjugal relationship in which we supported and maintained each other assuming reciprocal commitments and creating a duty to support each other”.

The late fashion icon and Bianca birthed a son on March 19.

Bianca revealed that she was the breadwinner of the family till Riky’s career got stable.

“The deceased also used my vehicle and this included me paying for petrol as well as money he had to pay for studio time recording his music. My financial support for the deceased continued until his career endeavours eventually became a success during the year 2014.”

“The deceased and I thus established a financial interdependence because I performed all the administrative tasks related to the decease’s duties as entertainer/musician until his untimely death.”

Bianca Naidoo said their parents are aware of their relationship and perceived them as married couple as the two introduced themselves to their parents in 2013.

The mother of two further revealed that they had already planned their marriage; though her late lover gifted her a promise ring in 2105 and 2020.

Rick addressed her as his wife at public spaces hence, “I have therefore been advised that I do qualify within the category of a partner ‘in a permanent life partnership in which the partners have undertaken reciprocal duties of support’,” read the papers.

Sunday World reports that Riky Rick’s family supported her appointment as the executrix and beneficiary.

The deceased and his baby mama were directors of Makgado Agency (Pty) Ltd.

Riky reeked of wealth which he garnered from his career and endorsements with Vaseline, Kiwi, African Bank, and Russian Bear.

He reportedly owned a Ferrari and a Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS coupé, among his fleet of vehicles.

He founded Cotton Club Records, owned a barber shop in the Legends Barber franchise and started the prestigious music and lifestyle event called Cotton Fest.
