ngoma​


means lean or a central nervous system depressant cough syrup that contains codeine (an opiate) and in this context, it's consumed for recreational purposes instead of medical use.

Etymology​


Ngoma pronunciation is slightly similar to a formal chiShona word spelled the same as ngoma which basically means drum or a Zimdancehall riddim in the context of slang, that is. However, with the former, you have to drag the letter "O" and that is to say: NGO-ohh-ma instead of just saying NGO-ma.

I will add on to say when people consume ngoma they will religiously avoid drinking any alcoholic beverage because drinking ngoma and beer or liquor is simply a highway to the nearest graveyard, in other words, lean and alcohol is like fire and gasoline to your organs and hopefully, you have life insurance.
