Ray C – She’s….well…….Racy!
Ray-C, born Rehema Chalamila, is at the top of the list for ummm….some pretty interesting music videos. She has more wiggles in her moves than Shakira and Beyonce combined, and she looks good doing it. That could be due to the fact that she took belly dancing lessons (which she must have done really well in).
Ray-C worked as a DJ on a show, Dr. Beat, for Clouds FM Radio station in Tanzania and took vocal training lessons. The only musician to perform Bongo, Bhangra, Taarab and R&B in one album, she is affectionately known as Tanzania’s beauty queen. To date she has released three albums, Mapenzi Yangu (My Love), Na Wewe Milele (With You Forever) in 2004, and Ray-C. All albums have gone platinum.
An accomplished performer, she has won a Kisima Music Award for Best East African Female Artist in 2004 and a Kilimanjaro Music Award for Best Female Vocalist for 2006-2007.
Ray-C has collaborated with several different artists including RF Chord, Temba from TMK Wanaume, and, her latest track, Siangilii Nyuma (I’m Not Looking Back), from the Ray-C album, was recorded with DGrilty (brother of US R&B star, Loon).
This lady has just started her journey and she is already one to watch. To learn more about her visit her myspace page.
