Ray of hope for Ray C?

By - | December 9th 2012


Almost a week ago radio high priestess and songbird Sheila Mwanyigha aka Nikki called Yours Truly after reading a story in Pulse Magazine about Ray C.

She wanted to know how ‘she can give something small’ to help her out of her predicament.

The soft-spoken singer was perturbed by Ray C’s condition.

I passed on the message to the relevant family members. But I was left still reeling in shock.

Personally, I have always admired the massive talent of Rehema Chalamila. Her diva tendencies have always reminded me of Man City star Mario Balotelli.

The athletic Italian striker is among the most talented and wayward among celebrities.

In a way, he follows in the footsteps of NBA rebound superstar Dennis Rodman in his mannerisms and eccentricism.

I admire Balotelli for standing up tall for his race. He might not be a good example, what with crazy nightlife and all, but he does not mince his words in matters race. After all if you stand for nothing at all, you will fall for anything.

The local showbiz scene is buzzing with celebrities who do not have anything they stand for. Some even cannot differentiate their left hand from the right.

And due to such hang-ups, they lose fame, or frame, faster than they arrived in the scene.

A few years ago Tanzanian diva Ray C was the hottest thing in the scene, she had all going well for her – great music, boyfriend and a stunning body to die for.

Right now, after several spats with managers and media – Yours Truly included – Ray C has slumped into bad state.

She has been allegedly abusing drugs and the substances, predictably, took their toll.

As we try to help her regain herself from the cusp of the abyss, we hope that the celebrities would understand that the show industry is business, they are the brand that need to be kept healthy and fresh and above all, the need to invest and save for a dry day.
