Early this year,a Tanzanian tabloid reported that music singer Ray C had gone back to abusing drugs,accusations that she vehemently denied.

The recovering drug addict had earlier been bailed out by Tanzanian president Jakaya Kikwete after being admitted to a rehab facility back in 2012.

But all these efforts to have her refrain from taking drugs have turned out to bear no fruit after a video emerged of the artist being rescued by Tanzanian police while trying to take her own life.

The Mama Ntilie singer was rescued at Kinondoni Manyanya in Dar es Salaam screaming out for help on the road;claiming that ‘she was being kidnapped.’

It is said that she asked for a knife to kill herself all this while uttering incomprehensible words.

Quite unfortunate turn of events for the artist who we thought was on her to way overcoming drug addiction.
