EMIRATES Airlines is for the first time showcasing Zambia’s musical talent to fans across the world.
The airline’s award-winning ice in-flight entertainment system features an expanding list of artistes.

Emirates flies direct from Lusaka to Dubai and Harare everyday. According to a statement issued by Langmead & Baker Ltd yesterday, those currently featured include Zambia’s top hip hop collective Zone Fam and singers General Ozzy and Roberto. The megastars are part of Emirates’ African Pop Mix channel compiled by highly-respected DJ Edu on the first and business class ice on demand service.

Passengers can now listen to Sinjojo, the latest single from Zone Fam’s second album, along with Uzakakota Chikubaba from General Ozzy, produced by Jerry Fingaz & David Fangas.

Emirates’ African Mix compilation in economy class includes Zone fam performing Contolola and Roberto singing ‘Took You,’ featuring Kaufela.

Born in Kenya and resident in the UK, DJ Edu is playing a vital role in the revival of African music across the world. His ‘Destination Africa’ show for BBC Radio 1Xtra presents the best of the current wave of artists from across the continent.

These channels would continue on ice digital widescreen for listeners travelling on flights throughout Emirates’ global network to 135 destinations in 77 countries.

Zone fam has members individually known as Dope G, Jay Rox, Yung Verbal and Thugga.
The four-man Zone Fam group is signed with Kenya’s Tauraus Music record company.

Their music is an exciting and unique blend of Zed beats, hip-hop and Afro-pop. They rap switching back and forth from English, to Zambian languages such as Nyanja and local Pidgin, to African languages such as Zulu, in order to reflect their Southern African origins.
Roberto is a Zambian singer/songwriter and radio deejay inspired by America’s R & B star, Usher Raymond.
General Ozzy is a versatile artist covering genres from dancehall to pop and African music.
