Sensational singer, songwriter and guitarist, with a mixture French and English, of classic and pop Ballads, R n’ B, Reggae, folk and Zouk (a mixture of French and Caribbean music), René Tshiakanyi is a musician whose musical style is unique. His debut single introduced him to a wide listening audience and put his name on many lips.
He was born in the Republic Democratic of Congo in 1981 in Mbuji-Mayi, Kasai Oriental on the 4th of March. He re-located to South Africa in 2008. There he felt the need to not only express himself in French, but in English as well. He enjoys performing in a variety of venues to promote his music. In February 2010 the Daily News, and in 2011 the City Press and other South African newspapers published articles on the musician and his work.
