Ngozi Family :: Nizakupanga Ngozi

Pobwela Pa Nyumba Panga Uyenela Kunkala Ndi Ulemu
You should have respect when you come to my house
Chifukwa Ine niza kuyasha tukopo twa Ngozi
Because I know how to give dangerous headbutts
Pobwela Pa Nyumba Panga Uyenela Kunkala Ndi Ulemu
You should have respect when you come to my house
Chifukwa ine niziba kuyasha tumambama twa bwino
Because I know how to give good slaps

CHORUS
Niza chita Bwanji
Kwa inu anzatu
Kuti tipeleke
Ulemu kwa zanu
What shall I do to you our friends
So that I can give you more respect?

Pobwela Pa Nyumba Panga Uyenela Kunkala Ndi Ulemu
You should have respect when you come to my house
Chifukwa Ine sinifuna Zo Kamba Kamba
Because I don’t want too much talking
Zokamba Kamba zileta Pa Mulomo
Too much talking brings gossip
Chifukwa Ine niza kuyasha tukopo twa Ngozi
Because I know how to give dangerous headbutts

► “Nizakupanga Ngozi” (Written & Composed by Paul Ngozi) from Ngozi Family’s 45 000 Volts (1977). Njanja lyrics transcribed and translated courtesy of Ben Phiri (Times of Zambia) ★

Keith Mlevhu :: Love and Freedom

Axe-wielding guitar wizard Keith Mlevhu chops the chains of the socio-political Southern Africa of 1976. “Love and Freedom” is the title track of his second solo outing recorded at Sapra Studios Kenya and released on Teal in 1976. The acclaimed LP would see another release by WEA in 1978. It is believed to be the first Zambian album to be adorned in a full-colour sleeve. ★

Salty Dog in the Bag


Let’s face it, pouring over the contents of someone’s record loot is crate digger crack. To mark the occasion of bassist/singer/designer Norman Muntemba’s birthday, we indulge in some vinyl voyeurism only to feast our eyes on Salty Dog’s self-titled long-player of 1976, a multidimensional psych exposition with “really good spirit and energy” and Zamrock’s finest archival release of 2013. ★
