The album was a success in her native Tanzania, but it was the release of her sophomore attempt 'Na Wewe Milele' the following year that shot her to fame across East Africa.
On the back of the success of her second album, Ray C won Kilimanjaro and Kisima Music Awards as well as booking a raft of corporate performances. She released her third album, the self-titled Ray C in 2007.
Ray C has performed globally, with appearances in The UK, The US, Germany, Sweden, China, Uganda, Nigeria, India, South Africa and Kenya.
