WiZ: When in Zambia… (3)

… you listen to ZamPop.


You heard it right. ZamPop. All day. Everyday. The best way to describe ZamPop’s beats and lyrics? Go to your iTunes library, search “Akon,” and play anything you find that pops up. After the roosters finish their “cock-a-doodle-doos” every morning, little electronic melodies and “boom clap claps” interrupt my morning tea without fail. I’m certain that my host brother, Jordan, is in training to become Zambia’s next ZamPop star. In all actuality, ZamPop isn’t that bad. You can’t help but eventually bob your head or sway here and there; it’s inevitable. I actually enjoy the majority of what I hear… when I’m in the mood for it. Because let’s face it, after a long day of weighing babies, talking to new mothers, teaching youth, and biking everywhere, the last thing you want to hear is Akon calling you beautiful.
