Of Bho Zvangu – Holy Ten Lyrics and Translation

Bho Zvangu is a track by Zimbabwean rap sensation Holy Ten. The track premiered on YouTube on 30 Oct 2020 as an animated track and has been smouldering until it reignited about a week ago (8 Jan 2021) when the artist dropped the official video of Bho Zvangu.

Listening to this track on a Friday at home, because lockdownBho Zvangu its difficult to explain the meaning of this phrase in a mouthful of English but it’s a sort of zen acceptance of the way of the world somewhere between …but I am Ok and its all good, even though its neither good nor ok, raging against it wont change anything so one makes peace with it, bho zvangu

Bho Zvangu is zen Holy Ten

Bho Zvangu Lyrics and Translation

Yeah
Bho zvangu
(Bho zvangu)
Yeah(I’m)
I’m one of those people that really don’t go out,
Low key Friday paDen,
Low key Friday at home
I’m (ah) I’m chilling I’m chilling na mhomz vangu
I’m chilling at home with my mum
Bho zvangu (yeah)
Ndine kaList kane ma goals angu
I have a list of my goals
Rasta people are fake,
That’s why I started blueticking maHoes angu, bho zvangu
PaDen ndichipinda na4 zvangu, ndichibvawo kwangu (ah)
Getting home at 4 come from where I was
Kune vese vakushuwira kufawo kwangu, musoro bhangu(ah)
To those wishing for my death, dunderheads
Cash tichichengeta muDrawer mangu
Keeping cash in my drawer
Ehh, ndichizoti ndakutora, pandichange ndakuroora, bho zvangu
Planning to take it out when I marry, bho zvangu
I’m one of those people that really don’t go out,
Low key Friday paDen,
Low key Friday at home
I’m (ah) I’m chilling I’m chilling na mhomz vangu
I’m chilling at home with my mum
Bho zvangu(yeah)
Ndine kaList kane ma goals angu
I have a list of my goals
Rasta people are fake,
That’s why I started blueticking maHoes angu, bho zvangu
I’m blueticking maHoes,
I’m still sleeping paSofa,
2A.M., I was watching this firimu randoda
2AM I was watching this film that I love
Ende this niqqa azofa kutofa(kutofa)
And this guy died (just died)
Iwe this niqqa akusvodwa, and then these niqqas vasvotwa (kusvotwa)
This guy was flexing and this guys were infuriated
They were like uyu tomubaya muchiRound, and then this niqqa akubhoshwa
They were like will toss this guy in the next turn and then this guy was cheated
That’s, why I’m one of those people that really dont go out,
Coz out there people just fight for things
Apa shaa zvimwe zvacho zvinenge zvisitori zvavo
And sometimes the things aren’t even theirs
Out there niqqas will swipe to drink
And then start acting like ikombi yavo,
And then start acting like its their vehicle
Then start acting like mudhoni wavo,
Then start acting like its their child
Then start acting like utori wavo, tell them (eh-vo)
Then start acting like you belong to them
I’m one of those people that really don’t go out,
Low key Friday paDen,
Low key Friday at home
I’m (ah) I’m chilling I’m chilling na mhomz vangu
I’m chilling with my mom
Bho zvangu(yeah)
Ndine kaList kane ma goals angu
I have a list of my goals
Rasta people are fake,
That’s why I started blueticking maHoes angu, bho zvangu


The official video has stunning visuals but personally, I still feel like the animated version brings out the story to life, bho zvangu.

What do you think?

  1. Animated version prefer! Also to say bho zvangu makes me feel cool. 🙂 Is it more like ‘whatever’ of more like ‘so be it’ or still different??

    1. The animated version takes the prize 😎😎
      It’s definitely cool to say it 🤩

      Let’s see:
      Whatever is a bit too dismissive
      And so be it sounds a tad ominous 😂
      It’s more like saying I’m cool with that

  2. I think they’re going for a trippy vibe, I love the beat! 😂 Was nodding my head throught the video and I even tried to sing the lyrics lol hahhaa I also love love the meaning of the song. The balance between everything kind of gives me a peace of mind. 😌 I love the word balance. I think its very important to know the power of the word and how it keeps us grounded. Thanks for sharing, B! Maybe I’ll add this to my music playlist. 😄 xx

  3. For someone who really doesn’t go out, where is he coming from at 4.. (four in the morning, or evening)

    Love the track, the video has impressive visuals, gets a thumbs up from me, but the animated vid is too awesome and illustrative and gets two thumbs up. Is there statistics on youtube telling you how many times you watched a vid? Wouldn’t be too surprised if I saw my own 1K views.
