#Zambia #ZoneFamTweetChat | Tweet Chat with Zambian Hip Hop Group Zone Fam

Zone Fam is one of the hottest Hip Hop crews in Zambia. Deriving their name from a studio they frequented in their earlier days called 'The Zone', the group consists of four individuals; Dope G, Jay Rox, Yung Verbal and Thugga. Zone Fam is responsible of some of the hottest hip hop tracks from Zambia such as Shaka Zulu On Em and Contolola. Afroziky had a chance to tweet chat with the boys on a Monday morning via the hashtag #ZoneFamTweetChat. We talked about their Monday schedule, their inspirations and whether or not they have already paid Lobola, which is the bride price. Check out the conversation below!

@Afrozikydotcom: Where are you guys right now? Home? Studio?
