AKA & Riky Touch Base With Their Families! Being a celebrity is certainly something that is out of the ordinary. A lot of people get lost in the world of fame and hype, forgetting where it is they came from.

“I took my children home for the first time ever.A part of me is disappointed that I haven’t kept close to all sides of my family throughout all these years,” said Riky Rick sharing a picture with his family members in Mankweng.

MEITA ELIZABETH REED who turns 105 tomorrow. What a privilege and a blessing. ,” tweeted AKA sharing pictures of his family.
I took my children home for the first time ever. A part of me is disappointed that I haven’t kept close to all sides of my family throughout all these years. Being born and mostly raised in Durban and my fathers side being Venda in Mankweng is a mix I’ll always be proud of but at times Ive felt conflicted about who I am culturally and historically. Taking my kids to my grandmother made me realize that its really not about me anymore but more about making sure they know that they have loving family that embraces them no matter where they grow up or live. Im learning that lesson very late in life but God willing my children will learn it much faster than its taken me.
