2021 hasn’t started well for WCB star Rayvanny. The man has been at the center of a controversy this past month where it is alleged that he might have spent some intimate time with a Tanzanian teen.

But while a scandal like this might make some go into hiding, Ray has decided to speak about his crazy rags to riches story. In a recent post, the singer like his boss Diamond Platnumz explained to the world that life was very tough way before fame.
Rayvanny narrated that he travelled to Dar Es Salaam from Kigoma after completing his O-level education where he found people were unwilling to help him get there.
That forced him to hitch a ride in a lorry that was heading that direction and could not be more grateful to the driver who happened to know him.
But he was to face some misfortune along the way as the clothes that he had packed were all ruined by some liquid that didn’t get off even with the strongest detergents.
”In the lorry my clothes were ruined, so I tried to clean them but I could not, so I was left with only one pair of clothes,” he added.
The musician said he was forced to spend an entire month with the only pair upon arriving in Dar Es Salaam. ”I have never said this anywhere before but I stayed at a place for like a whole month with just one pair of clothes. It was a Purple T-shirt and a red Pencil trouser. I used to turn the clothes inside out whenever they got dirty and I had to show change,” he explained.
The “Tetema” singer noted that that period had been the lowest in his life but also taught him resilience and gave him the hunger to work hard and succeed.
But later on, his dreams would come true after Rayvanny met with Diamond’s manager Babu Tale who took him in and as they say, the rest is history.
