You see an overweight lady, I see the success story of recovering drug addict; The Ray C Story Part 211:36:00 AM
|This month's True Love magazine feature recovering drug addict |
and East African Sweetheart,Ray c
For those who do not know who Ray C is, she is one of the pioneer new age bongo flava (Tanzania music) artists known for her amazing voice, suggestive eyes (thats what people said, i am just reporting) and waist shaking skills that were to die for, like literally. Unfortunately she got into drugs, sold a lot of her stuff to finance her addiction, missed shows and things got really really bad. Fast forward, she finally went to rehab and is doing much better now, helping others going through addiction and got some weight while at it. So when everyone else is seeing an overweight lady, a regional superstar who was ahead of her time but unfortunately lost her way, I see someone who as True Love magazine rightfully titled, has been to hell and back…from my own experience I can relate to some of the things she has been through so if she came back with a little kilos over, that is nothing compared to the battles she has had to fight, there are many who make it back not just to tell their experiences but also to assist her.
