Condolences continued to pour in following the death of musician Rikhado “Riky Rick” Makhado earlier this week, and Legends Barbers have shared their obeisances.

Riky Rick brought in the popular barbershop franchise with his wife Bianca Naidoo in 2019. Legends Barber has been awarded as the best barbershop on the African continent and was founded by Sheldon Tatchell.

The franchise barbershop has several branches throughout the country.

Riky Rick’s franchise store was in Waterfall Corner, Midrand in Johannesburg. TV host, Lalla Hirayama shared she set out to light candles for the Legends Barbershop and asked others to do the same.

Dozens answered her call and dozens of flowers, candles, balloons and cards were packed in front of the shop.
