After 4 years away from the main scene, Pandita comes back in with full force partnering with Nigerian producer Wale Owoade in a song entitled Hallelujah Praise coincidentally released on her birthday and Thanksgiving day - November 24th.
Originally from Mamfe, Pandita was raised in a Christian home primarily by her grandparents and aunts, with dregree of Godliness instilled in her. Her passion for music started at a very early age, singing with the children’s choir at The Apostolic Church Cameroon in Mamfe. After finishing her primary education at Government Practicing School Egbekaw, she moved to Yaoundé for her secondary education at English High School (EHS). While at EHS, her passion grew even stronger as she was determined in fulfilling her God’s given assignment which was to spread the gospel through music.
Moving from Cameroon to the United States in 2010, she was introduced into pro-music production by Cameroonian singer Naomi Achu. Pandita crafted her first single “Life Don Better” in 2012 with the help of sound engineer Walta Blackson and a Cameroon based Producer Joseph Dinka’a aka Joe Piano.
In 2013, Pandita was nominated for Best Gospel artist in the maiden edition of SONNAH Awards, which took place in Yaounde. Pandita there on took a while off the main scene to focus on her academics and to build her brand. While away, she started a new interest in community service, that help randomly selected underprivileged and orphans in indigenous areas of Cameroon made possible by the yearly praise and worship events she organises in her resident city of Cincinnati, OH. She actively got back in the scene early 2016 with the help of Nigerian born, American-based Producer Wale Owoade with a medley cover of popular gospel worship songs including “Miracle Worker” by Glowreeyah Braimah.
This cover caught the eyes of many new followers from all around the globe. In the Autumn of 2016, she was recognised as the most valuable Cameroonian Gospel artist at the Diaspora Entertainment Awards which took place in Maryland.
Pandita also draws her inspiration from various artists with varying arrays of genres, some of which are Bukola Bekes, Tasha Cobbs, Ronke Adesoken, Mary Mary, Stella Damasus, Chioma Jesus, Nathaniel Bassey, Grace Forlu, and many more. With a massive amount of talent and drive, the best is yet to come from this young woman after God’s heart.
