Watch Riky Rick’s Impressive Feel Good Live Sessions Performance

King Kotini delivers a performance that will put a smile on your face.

South African rapper and producer Riky Rick kicks off the second season of the YouTube show Feel Good Live Sessions with a performance that will put a smile on your face.


Just like all the previous performances that have been hosted on the platform, Riky's set is precise—it lasts for only 20 minutes, and will having you wishing it was longer.

The artist performs two songs from his Stay Shining EP (2017), "Stay Shining" and "Joy." He revisits old hits "Fuseg," Sidlu' ukotini" and "Boss Zonke."

Because he's a don, he does vocals and also plays some pads on an MPC, ensuring the set doesn't lose the grit from the original songs. Riky and his three-piece band have some sporadic moments of improvisation and the artist also involves the audience in his performance in a way only he can.

Don't ask, just watch below. Revisit our coverage of Riky's EP, Stay Shining, here.

The Feel Good Live Sessions, started by the rapper JR, have hosted artists such as Kwesta, Amanda Black, Shekhinah, Sjava and more. We don't need to tell you to subscribe to the channel.
