Here’s a nice piece from George da Soulchild (via Times Entertainment), co-presenter of our Sunday night radio show, airing at 20.30 hrs CAT on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station.
“Zambia’s premiere hip-hop group Zone-Fam mean ‘ Business’ this time around! On October 1, 2011, the group released its new album “The Business” (Foreign Exchange). The 18-track album includes songs such as “The Business”, “Shaka Zulu On Em”, “Mbama”, “Chikali” (featuring Slap Dee, Ozzy & Petersen), “Man Dem” (featuring Cactus Agony & Macky 2), “No Matter What They Say”, “Ntofo-tofo” and many more. Zone Fam told Times Entertainment that the celebrated crew is also working on a breathtaking video track ‘Life is Good.’
Zone-Fam derives its name from the studio – Zone Farm – they frequented in their early days. ‘The Zone’ is a group of four individuals Dope G, Jey Roxy, Young Verbal and Thugga who set the entertainment world alight with tracks like “Shaka Zulu” that has enjoyed airplay and an international stage on MTV base.
Zone-Fam Officially released their second album single and music video Shaka Zulu on March 1, this year after successfully releasing their debut Mobhodlela (the Bottles) which is still enjoying massive airplay. Talking a bit on the Shaka Zulu track, a high level of creativity depicting the real African life is at play in this particular video as it shows the pride of Africa and pays homage to the roots of the beautiful continent.
Though with an international touch and appeal to the quality of production, this particular video was shot and edited right here in Zambia yet competes well on the international music channels. Thumbs up to the Ground Xero productions and director Kenny Mumba.”
We wish them all the best with their new album!
