Fat Panda Tuan made an official press statement to discuss the meaning behind his stage name and his ideology as an artist “My stage name is a very unique way for me to change the narrative on the things that were once my weaknesses. It is an attempt for me to find power in the things that were once my insecurities. Being a former fat kid, I was ashamed of my excess pounds and was never really made to feel confident by anyone. In addition to that, I was an immigrant teenager in America. I was struggling to find acceptance when I realized that it starts from me. I got into fitness and became much healthier. I want to aim for body positivity and kindness so that everyone, no matter what they look like of where they’re from, can feel loved.”
He further added “My stage name is a nod to my Asian heritage and my formerly overweight self. If I can find positivity and empowerment in the things that once kept me down, I am sure my fans and followers can too. Not only am I healthy now, I am a personal trainer and love to help people meet their fitness goals. I am working hard to pump out some great new projects in 2020 in order to inspire an even bigger demographic of listeners while collaborating with great artists who share the same values as me.”
