Ray C disclosed that after successfully overcoming her struggles with drug addiction and completing rehabilitation, she found that people still did not take her seriously.

“Despite overcoming my challenges, I felt that I wasn’t being fully respected or acknowledged,” she shared. “In 2017-2018, I returned to the studio and released some songs, but I still felt a lack of inner peace. Although I had physically recovered, my heart was still in need of healing.”

To find the inner peace she sought, Ray C made the decision to leave Tanzania.

“I felt that my efforts were not being recognized, and I realized that I couldn’t force others to respect me. I believed that respect would come naturally over time. Having traveled extensively to many countries, I prayed to God to guide me out of Tanzania,” she explained.

Since relocating abroad, the singer, known for hits like “Wanitafuta Nini,” has started a family, welcoming a husband and a son into her life.

She joyfully announced her pregnancy in February 2023 through an Instagram post, expressing gratitude for God’s timing.

“On February 13th, she proudly shared the first photo of her son, Shah Rukh.”

One lesson we can all learn from Papa Dennis’ death

About a fortnight ago, Kenyans were shocked when they learnt that gospel singer Dennis Mwangi, popularly known as Papa Dennis, had jumped to his death in Nairobi’s Pangani Estate.

Also read: Stop asking musicians what else they do!

What was astounding was not even how he died but the fact that he had been sleeping in the studio after his landlord locked him out of his rented apartment and he could not even afford to feed himself.

The truth is, the Papa Dennis that we all knew was filthy rich, or at least we thought so. The guy would often be seen flaunting wads of cash on social media, showing off his posh home, driving luxurious cars, name it.

Papa Dennis

The Nashukuru hitmaker even had collabos with the likes of Chidinma, Korede Bello, Flavour, Ray C, just to name a few. Anyone can tell you just don’t wake up one morning and get on a track with these artists.

I have immense respect for the dead but it does not make sense. Did he squander all his money or was he living a lie because his story does not make sense however hard you try to understand it.

There are rumors that his problems began after he parted ways with his promoter Sadat Muhindi who is the founder of Maliza Umaskini Foundation but we won’t talk about that today because it’s hearsay.

Papa Dennis

However, one thing that we can talk about and I’m hoping we can all learn a lesson from is living your truth or being yourself. This applies to celebrities, politicians and everyone – you and me.

You see, there is no need going around telling people that you are filthy wealthy and how your life is glamorous but it really isn’t. I don’t know why people even do that.

You see, eventually the truth will come out and people will hate you for being a fraud when you could have just lived a normal life like the rest of us who are not deep pocketed. Hi Kobi Kihara! Okay, that was not really necessary.

She went on to describe herself as the future Mrs Uhuru; and judging from her previous posts shared in the past where the lady has never been shy to reveal her obsession with the President.

Future Mrs Uhuru! Jah love!

Ray C

Although her music career had started to pick up; Ray C confession has left many speculating that she might have started using again.

Not quite sure why the singer would pull such a stunt on social media but chances are; Ray C really needs help or the singer is hyping for a new project.

I’m Negative! Ray C shuts down rumours she’s HIV positive with latest results

Fading Bongo singer Rehema Yusuph Chalamila, known to many as Ray C, was recently forced to fire back at critics who have been claiming she’s not 100 percent health wise.

Rumours have been doing rounds on social media that the singer is HIV positive for months now. It’s not clear who or how the word started but it seems the singer has grown tired of it.

Taking to social media, the singer, who is currently in the US, shared results after a random HIV test instantly killing the rumors.


She wanted to prove that she’s still very much healthy unlike what many people are saying.

“Kiboko ya too much know know! #jijali #jithamini #selflove” she captioned the results.

“Dada yetu Rose Muhando anahangaika tu huko Kenya hana msaada” Ray C sends message to Tanzanian musicians

Bongo singer Ray C, who is residing in Kenya, has called on Tanzanian musicians to come to the rescue of gospel singer Rose Muhando.

Muhando has been making headlines ever since video surfaced online showing controversial preacher James Ng’ang’a exorcising demon out of her.

She’s not getting help

Ray C is now calling on Tanzanian gospel musicians and music regulatory body Basata to intervene and save Rose Muhando from her misery. She took to Instagram to pen a message to relevant people;

Can you imagine the president of the country offered to help me- Ray C

Singer Ray C has opened up on celebrating three years of being drug free.

The singer went to rehab after former Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete funded the total cost of taking her abroad for medication.

Ray C spoke to Couture Africa and said that the president coming out to help her made her really fight for her life as much as she had given up.

“I was at a point where I was done with life and contemplating suicide but I could hear a voice say ‘I am not done with you. I will bring along people to help you and lift you up. People you cannot imagine.’ Sure enough, I did get those calls from people urging me on. Telling me not to quit; my mum, Kikwete. Can you imagine the president of the country offering to help you? It was God telling me I am important, that this is not you and that you have to get better. So I felt if people of that calibre can think of me and want to help me, who am I not to want to help myself?”

Back to normal

Now that she’s back to her normal self, the singer promised to give her fans and family her best as a new person.

“Today, I look back and see all I have done and gone through and I am still here. God is not done with me. I have so much to give to my family, my fans who support me and healed with me. They are real and they are like my family” she said.

More drama! Ray C and Hamisa Mobetto 2 month old beef takes a new twist

Ray C and Hamisa Mobetto first exchanged fire sometimes in July this year. The whole drama started when Ray C called out Hamisa Mobetto for selling substandard goods at her boutique.

Apparently Hamisa sells fake Chinese stuff at her shop while claiming they are of superior quality. Ray C says she would rather buy locally made goods instead of the counterfeit at Hamisa’s shop.

‘Substandard’ song

Hamisa Mobetto dropped her debut song ‘Madam Hero’ a few days ago. And guess who came out to troll Mobetto over her new song?

Ray C savagely blasted Mobetto claiming her song all but bullshit. She says Hamisa was among musicians who are contributing to the deterioration of Bongo music.

“Mnaharibu maana nzima ya Bongo Flava! Acheni utani na kazi za watu! Sio kila mtu aimbe. It’s bullshit. Am tired of listening to bullshit song! #LevelUp,” wrote Ray C.





“Watu warudi kutubu kwa Mungu, wasisubiri hadi matatizo yawapate” Ray C speaks of Elizabeth Lulu’s repentance

Elizabeth Lulu appears to have given her life to Christ even though she hasn’t publicly announced it. The actress caused tongues to wag when she was seen praying and crying during a church service.

Lulu ‘moved closer’ to God after being released from prison where she spent 6 months. She was sentenced to two years in prison in November 2017 for causing the death of celebrated Tanzanian actor Stephen Kanumba.

Ray C says she was moved by photos and videos of Lulu praying in church. The songbird says she has been reflecting on her life ever since she saw the photos.


“Aisee, nimemfuatilia sana Lulu tangu ameanza kupata matatizo ya kesi yake amebadirika sana. Sasa amekuwa mtu wa kumtukuza Mungu. Yaani nikiwa namwangalia picha zake au video zake mitandaoni anazoimba nyimbo za dini mpaka machozi yananilenga, hadi fikra zinakuja maana sikumbuki mara ya mwisho lini niliingia kanisani,” said Ray C.

Don’t wait until you get in trouble

Ray C now urges people not to wait until they get in trouble for them to go back to God. She says she has learnt her lesson from Lulu’s case.

“Najiona mzima sasa na nasahau kuwa Mungu ni mkali. Hakika nimejifunza kitu kutoka kwake, nawashauri watu wajirudi kwa kutubu kwa mwenyezi Mungu kutokana na makosa waliyofanya, wasisubiri hadi matatizo yawapate.”








Ray C moved by ex-convict Lulu Michael’s video in church and promises to follow her route 

Bongo Flava singer Ray C might have released a couple of gospel songs or worked with a gospel artist here and there, but she can’t remember the last time she was in church.

And after watching a clip of Bongo Movie actress Elizabeth Michael aka Lulu Michael in church praising the lord, she’s missed just being in the house of the lord.

Praise and worship

On social media, a video of Lulu, who is just coming from a jail sentence of almost an year after killing her boyfriend and colleague Steven Kanumba in 2012, was recorded in church praising God. The video moved Ray C.

“LULU!Nimeangalia hii video zaida ya mara kumi nahisi!mpaka machozi yamenilenga kwakweli!Sikumbuki lini nimeingia kanisani!Najiona mzima sasa na nasahau kuwa Mungu ni mkali! Nimejifunza kitu kutoka kwako my dear!Kikubwa sana.  You Inspire Me…….@elizabethmichaelofficial” shared Ray C.

Lulu, 23, had been sentenced to two years in prison and was released in May.

Hamisa Mobetto viciously claps back after Ray trashed her business and called her products fake

Singer Ray C recently came out to share that Video Vixen Hamisa Mobetto’s new business is not what she expected. The popular singer claimed that Mobetto is selling fake stuff collected from China, a thing that didn’t impress Mobetto at all.

Mobetto, who started a new boutique just a few weeks ago, has come out to defend her business insisiting that the singer is just another bitter person now that she’s doing good. She asked Ray C to start her own business and focus on selling legit stuff.

Start you own first

“I couldn’t perform without drugs” Ray C opens up about being a slave to drugs during trip to Mombasa (Photos)

Rehema Chalamila famously known as Ray C has permanently relocated to Kenya. The Tanzanian singer joined NACADA to mark International Day against Drug Abuse and illicit Trafficking at an event held at Tononoka Ground in Mombasa.

Ray C attended the event in Mombasa alongside Chipukeezy who was recently appointed to the board of the National Authority for Campaign Against Drug Abuse (NACADA).

The Tanzanian songbird was given a chance to address the audience at the event, she narrated about her own experience using hard drugs.

Couldn’t do anything without drugs

Ray C said she was a slave to drugs, she explained that her body couldn’t function without drugs. The songbird cautioned Mombasa residents against using drugs saying it has adverse effects to users.

“Addiction took three of the best of me. I was heartbroken. My brain was taken away by drug use. My brain was not working because there was something else in my brain telling me I could not perform on stage without drugs, that I could not do anything without drugs. I could not go anywhere without drugs, therefore I was a prisoner in my own soul. Wengi wanaoingia kwenye madawa, watu wanaathirika maini kwenye madawa, watu wanatumia sindano pamoja wanapata HIV, wanawake wanajiuza ili mradi aweze kupata pesa aweze kukidhi ule utegemezi wake,” said Ray C.




“Don’t play my songs when I die” Ray C’s death wish raises eyebrows

Ray C is making waves with her death wish, the Tanzanian songbird wants media houses not to give her airplay when she finally passes on.

Ray C is  irritated by how Tanzanian media houses are playing Sam wa Ukweli’s songs. Sam passed on  a fortnight ago after falling ill at a music studio.

Sam struggled to get airplay while he was alive but upon his death his songs have been played repeatedly on radio and TV, and this is what has vexed Ray C.

No need to support us when we’re  dead

Ray C has since sent a humble plea to Tanzanian media not to play her songs when she dies. The songbird, who now resides in Kenya, says there is no need for her songs to be given airplay when she dies because she won’t benefit from it.

“Sometimes I wonder what’s with the bongo media. You have to die for your songs to receive massive airplay including the ones that have not been officially released. What’s the purpose of supporting us when we are dead? When I die they shouldn’t even bother giving me a promo,” said Ray C.






Ray C on bleaching: I’m eating well compared to back in the day that could explain why

Ray C has been accused many times of bleaching. The singer, who has a new song with Kenyan singer Papa Dennis called “Tornado”, said in an interview that better diet and mobile phone technology has improved her looks.

“I probably have bleached my skin, or not. I cannot confirm or deny. I think I am currently eating well compared to back in the day. That could explain why I am lighter today,” she said in an interview with Citizen Digital.


“There were no photo-editing apps back in the day. Today, there are many apps that you can use to manipulate your picture,” she said.

Watch the interview below:

Ray C makes a major comeback into the Kenyan music industry with a new collabo with gospel whizkid Papa Dennis

Ray C has been struggling to make a major music comeback for years. The Tanzanian songbird has been battling drug addiction which had an adverse effect on her music career.

Rumors of a collaboration between Ray C and Papa Dennis started when the onetime queen of Bongo music traveled to Kitale to attend the burial of Papa Dennis’ sister.

Indeed Papa Dennis and Ray C were working on a song which they have now released. The two singers have dropped a new song dubbed ‘Tornado’.

The video was  shot in South Africa by Godfather Productions – a professional production company in South Africa which specializes in filming and production of TV commercials and music videos.

It’s not clear whether Papa Dennis has quit gospel music altogether, because ‘Tornado’ sounds more of a romantic song than a gospel song.
