  1. Tzy Panchak (real name, Etah ‘Brian’ Tambe Nyenti) may have begun singing a long time ago and hit a few successes but it was his touch on Kizz Daniel’s hit song, ‘Woju’ that got everyone to notice the talented vocalist in 2015. His interpretation of that song titled, ‘Mado’ is now been considered an “even better” version than the original track.  Panchak immediately caught everybody’s attention and music lovers couldn’t stop asking for more.
  1. After making his way into the limelight with a Kizz Daniel cover song, Panchak sprang into a series of love songs, particularly ‘Stay With Me’, a song which has won him recognition and award nominations and rave reviews from critics and music aficionados. It was a simple song, but embodied with creativity, originality and soul-touching lyrics. Panchak then made music to celebrate love and empower women. Songs like ‘SuperWoman,’ ‘Like That’, ‘Mon Bebe’, ‘Mad 4 Yu’, ‘Woman Crush,’ ‘Goretti,’ and so many others; all tell stories of loving and respecting your woman and treating her right. No wonder his fan base comprises of so many strong beautiful women.

3. In 2018, Panchak co-wrote Cameroon’s number 1 hit song ‘My Way’ performed by himself, Stanley Enow, and Locko. The song’s popular hook was written by him as his verse but Stanley thought it wise to switch it as the chorus instead, according to our sources. The song (owned by Stanley) quickly became the song of the year and considered one of the best music collaborations the industry has ever heard. Once again, an El Chako touch on music became iconic, timeless and well received by the masses.

4. Panchak isn’t just good with writing songs but he’s also created a movement in the industry by giving a platform for unknown and/or up and coming artists to hit the spotlight through his now viral online #musicchallenge campaigns. Between 2018 and 2019, Panchak has unveiled the likes of Cleo Grae, Vivid Smith (former member of Realm Squad), Tina Vernyuy, Big Poundz and has somewhat revived the career of a powerful vocalist like Gasha. These choices have created opportunities and raised new talents who can now boast of been heard and seen by the population. He does it so effortlessly and selflessly. Check out ‘Na So,’ ‘Galilee,’ ‘Tomorrow,’ and ‘Put Your Hands On We’ videos on Youtube.

5. Last but not the least, Tzy Panchak is now the only Cameroonian artist to have taken down his music video from YouTube twice just because he felt it lacked the artistic quality they deserved. ‘Galilee’, a song he wrote for singer, Gasha (which ended up as a duet) had its video deleted twice after accumulating thousands of YouTube views in just two days and when it’s third upload showed up, it had added scenes. Panchak told us, “If it’s not good, I won’t put it up. It was unfair to my fans and it completely misrepresented by brand.”


Panchak has also been able to give himself new aliases with each release. From calling himself Panchako, Mr Romantic, El Chako and now El Chako the Great, this Kumba native says he’s only just beginning and fans should expect better projects in the near future.

Looks like everything he touches turns to gold. Watch out for him 2020!
