Zone Fam

Bio

Zone Fam is the leading hip-hop group in Zambia, managed by Duncan Sodala of Slam Dunk Records. It’s members are Dope G, Jay Rox, Yung Verbal and Thugga. Sharing a passion for hip-hop made it easy for the members of Zone Fam to craft a creative bond that enables them to work on timeless music together. Though influenced by American rappers, their sound is proudly Zambian and African, an exciting and unique blend of Zed beats, hip-hop and Afro-pop. They rap switching between English, Zambian languages such as Nyanja and local Pidgin, and other African languages such as Zulu.

After the local success of 'Pop Dat Body' in 2009, they decided to create their first album, 'The Business (Foreign Exchange)' released by Slam Dunk Records. The first single was 'Mabhodlela' (Bottles) which became another local favourite and still enjoys heavy airplay across Zambia. They then found international acclaim and global recognition with their second official single and music video, 'Shaka Zulu On Em'. The video received rave reviews in Zambia and across the continent, making it the group’s breakout hit.

In 2012, Zone Fam took their quest for African and global domination to the next level by signing with Taurus Musik, the pan-African music arm of Taurus Group. On 24 September 2012, Zone Fam released their first single with Taurus Musik called 'Contolola', off their second album. Zone Fam have won numerous awards, including Zambian Music Awards, a Channel O Africa Music Video Award and a Global African Music Award (GAMA). Their next album, due out in late 2014, is 'Bar Code', featuring the single 'Two Things'.
