His catchy intro tagline; “its Tzy Panchakooo” makes his name easily stick to fans’ minds. He came under the spot light in 2015 after he released his own version of Davido,s “Woju” song. The cover song; “Mado” was well received throughout Cameroon and other parts of Africa. The success of “Mado” landed Tzy Panchak a records deal with Blunation; a popular Buea-based Record Label.

The hit track, “Makaveli” was his first official single followed by others such as “stay with me”, “woman crush”, “No worry”, “super woman”, “Salute” Ft Chantman, “the struggle”, and “I’m not lucky” among others. Tzy Panchak relocated to Calabar, Nigeria at a young age where he did his university Education and graduated with a B.SC in Computer Sciences. His stay in Nigeria served as source of inspiration to him. Due to his consistency in releasing hits, which he writes himself, he’s now being seen by many Cameroonians as the new Afro pop king and a role model to many aspiring music artist in Cameron.

Panchacko’s fans say he is very outspoken and believes in giving back as he can be quoted to have said, “Learn to give to those who don’t have what you have. Make others happy like yourself,” on Decoded TV. The young Cameroonian, who is still single, is patriotic and most of lyrics reflect the struggles and lifestyle of young Cameroonians whom he says “should always believe in themselves to succeed”. He draws inspiration from God, love stories, friends, family and his fans.
