Before venturing into music, Ray C worked as a presenter for the Dar es Salaam-based Clouds FM radio station. She released her debut album “Mapenzi Yangu” in 2003. She has toured East Africa, China, United Kingdom and other countries.

Ray C was once considered the hottest female artiste in the East African region. She won numerous awards between 2004 and 2011 and then she disappeared after her successful hit, Moto Moto.

What a lot of people did not know about the singer was that she had a serious drug issue which escalated when she came to live in Kenya. This week, photos of Ray C have appeared in Tanzanian papers showing her in a sorry state of health.
“She used to have to take drugs before shows. It was so bad that sometimes she would go backstage during a show, and when we’d check up on her we’d find that she had blacked out from taking drugs. Then we had to wake her up to continue the show,”
