Wondering how it all started for him? Well, in one way or the other he knew he would always be in the entertainment industry because way back at Accra Academy he recollects how he use to go round dormitories to seek the opinions of fellow students on current affairs using his spoon as a microphone.
It was no surprise, therefore, when he was voted as the Entertainment Prefect, a sort of "vox-pop" in his final year.
After Accra Academy, he did his National Service at Radio Universe and then moved on to the School of Administration, University of Ghana, Legon (now the University of Ghana Business School).
Whiles in his second year at the university he also enrolled at the Central University College where he studied Business Administration. He actually holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from the Central University. So, yes, he has two certificates from the University of Ghana and Central University. He is a Master’s Degree holder at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom.
He describes himself as a brilliant young man, who is outstanding, outgoing with a loveable personality. He owes his success first and foremost to God. Aside that, he believes that hard work and being focused has brought him where he is today.
Bola Ray says the industry has been good to him. He treats his fans with all the praise and love they deserve.
He is married to Dorcas and together they have two great sons.
