Tanzika was a handmaiden in the Wakandan royal court. She had a crush on the king T'Challa. After her lover Zatama dumped her, she murdered him and framed T'Challa's American girlfriend Monica Lynne who was already unpopular with the Wakandans.
She served time in prison but after her release she became the lover of Solomon Prey and plotted to bring drugs into Wakanda. After her plan was exposed she tried to kill Monica who elbowed Tanzika in the face.
She didn't get along with the Black Panther's girlfriend Monica Lynne or the Falcon's girlfriend Leila Taylor.
