Rémy Martin partners with Riky Rick to search for South Africa’s hottest up-and-coming producer
Remy Producers, the music platform that has been taking the US by storm, is coming to South Africa. Premium cognac brand, Rémy Martin, announced today that it will be linking with acclaimed artist, Riky Rick, to search for the country’s hottest up-and-coming producer.

We want to discover and celebrate emerging music producers and we are excited to see what talent will be uncovered. And we don’t believe we could have partnered with anyone better than Riky Rick – he really is at the top of his game, and serves as an inspiration and mentor to many in the music scene,” explains Jerome Adonis, Rémy Martin South Africa Brand Manager.
“We believe in supporting the process of music making, as well as championing talents and creativity. It speaks to our belief as a brand that anything – whether that be making music or cognac – is most successful when done collaboratively,” he continues.
Speaking on the collaboration, Riky Rick said, “I’m so excited to be working on this with Rémy Martin. I’m looking for the hottest new tracks form anyone out there, whether a first-time beat maker, or new producer.
