Songbird Ray C arrested in Dar after losing control – VIDEO

Tanzanian songstress Rehema Chamila, better known Ray C, was on Friday night arrested by police after seemingly losing control on the streets of Dar es Salaam.

In a video, which has been widely shared on social media, the once celebrated singer is seen being arrested and bundled into a police pick up.

The singer, who is said to have been shouting that some people were out to kidnap her, appears distraught and dazed.


Unconfirmed reports indicate that Ray C has fallen back to her drug addiction. Other reports have it that the singer’s mother has been looking for her, since she has not been seen at home for a while.

Tanzanian actress, ESha Buheti, expressed her disappointment after witnessing the one-time top bongo artiste traumatic experience.

Ray C has been struggling with drug addiction and in 2012 then President of Tanzania, Jakaya Kikwete, offered to pay for her medical bills of the songstress who was undergoing rehabilitation.

The rehabilitation seemed to have been going well and last year she made it to the cover of True love Magazine (April edition) as she recounted her addiction and road to recovery.
