Riky Rick released the 12th episode of his “The Yard” YouTube series on Tuesday.
The series sees the “Boss Zonke” hitmaker welcome talented artists into his studio set and give them a platform to perform their latest and greatest hits.
The directing and cinematography on the series is helmed by Riky himself. Riky also handles the mixing of the recorded audio himself.
For this episode, Riky welcomed rapper and singer-songwriter Ch’cco onto the platform for the “Holiday Special”.
“Every few months the South African sound evolves and we are introduced to new artists who are pure hybrids of everything we love about our performers and the music they create,” he said.
“One of these performers is Ch’cco and he is love in the year. Ch’cco makes heartbreak sound like a vibe.”
