Ngozi Family – Hold On

The song “Hold on” is part of “45,000 Volts”, originally released in 1977 by the Ngozi Family. It was a sharp cut, defining slice of Zamrock.

Ngozi Family was one of the most prolific bands in Zambia at that time and rocketed to stardom in a period that is hailed as the golden age of Zambian music. The Ngozi Family music is also best remembered for his witty and poignant lyrics that reflected the life and times of Zambians.

The band was lead by Paul Dobson Nyirongo (a.k.a. Paul Ngozi) who was known for his spectacular stage antics, that included playing the guitar with his teeth. They were the first band to be called ‘Zamrock’.”
