Riky Rick & Soliat Join The AfroHits

The afrohits crew are spicing things up this Thursday with not one but TWO special guests in the studio.

 

Adding even more flavour into the mix will be Afrobeat/hip-hop rapper, Riky Rick and African dancer, Soliat!

 

Riky Rick

 

 

Hailing from the sunny shores of Johannesburg, South Africa Riky Rick has carved out a whole new lane for himself with his unique hybrid sound of early Kwaito and Hip Hop. His raw and eclectic style has cemented him as one of South Africa's most electrifying performers and rap artists the continent has ever seen.

 

Having found the perfect synergy between South African township life and International appeal, the all-round entertainer has won numerous awards for his music including the coveted MTV Africa Award for Best Music Video, two SA Hip Awards and a Loerie Award for his short film 'EXODUS'.

 

His latest album 'Family Values' was certified platinum by RISA and was in the Top 20 African Albums of 2015.

 

Alongside his very successful music career, Rike Rick has one of the most loved and respected personal brands, lending his face and creativity to major campaigns for Ben Sherman, Puma, Russian Bear Vodka, Woolworths and Vaseline. His talents in the fashion world also scored him Most Stylish Male in Performing Art at the prestigious South African Style Awards held in November 2016.

 

Look out for more from Riky Rick this year.

 

 

Soliat Bada

 

Shooting to fame as 1/3 of the famous performance trio CEO Dancers, many will recognise professional dancer and upcoming chef Soliat Bada from numerous stage performances including the 2016 leg of Britain's Got Talent where the trio made it all the way to the semi-finals.

 

Fusing together traditional African dance with contemporary, Soliat has performed alongside some of the music world's greatest including Rihanna, Sean Paul, D'Banj and Fuse ODG, before being handpicked to accompany global megastar Drake on the U.S. leg of his Summer Sixteen Tour.

 

Always striving for greatness, Soliat has been busy adding another string to her bow, pursuing her goal of becoming a culinary force to be reckoned with. The mission of Nula's Kitchen, is to challenge the African food industry to raise the level of customer service and food presentation, and open African cuisine to a global audience.
