Born in Ouagadougou, Zongo began his career with hometown club US Ouagadougou. In October 2010, he moved to Spain and joined UD Almería, being initially assigned to the reserve team in the third division. One month after arriving he suffered a knee injury, going on to miss several weeks.
Zongo made his official debut with the Andalusians' main squad on 13 January 2011, coming on as a second-half substitute for Kalu Uche in a 1–0 home win against Deportivo de La Coruña for the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey. He played his first game in the Segunda División on 29 January of the following year, against Gimnàstic de Tarragona.
Again coming from the bench, Zongo scored his first goals for Almería on 19 May, netting a late brace in a 2–0 home victory over AD Alcorcón. For the 2012–13 season he was promoted to the first team and appeared mostly from the bench in early games; however, in January, after the departures of Aarón Ñíguez and Leonardo Ulloa, he began being more utilised in manager Javi Gracia's starting XI as a winger, keeping his place under Gracia's successor Francisco.
On 28 June 2013, Zongo was definitely promoted to Almería's main squad, with the club in La Liga. In August, however, he declined a first-team contract, being again demoted to the reserves; on 12 November he finally agreed to a deal, running until 2017.
On 4 January 2014, Zongo played his first match in the Spanish top flight, featuring the last 19 minutes in a 3–0 home defeat of Granada CF and becoming the first Burkinabé footballer to appear in the competition. He scored his first league goal late in the month, the game's only in a win against Getafe CF also at the Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos.
On 16 December 2014, in a 2–1 home win against Real Betis for the Spanish Cup, Zongo scored a goal from 50 metres which lobbed goalkeeper Dani Giménez. He was regularly used during the season, but his side suffered relegation.
In January 2017, Zongo suffered a knee injury while on international duty, being sidelined for the remainder of the campaign; his contract expired before he was fully recovered, and he left the club. On 8 January 2019, after 18 months without a club, he signed for Thai League 2 side Army United F.C..
On 7 August 2013, Zongo was called up to the Burkina Faso national team for a friendly match with Morocco. He made his debut seven days later, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–1 away win; on 21 May of the following year he scored his first international goal, the equaliser in a 1–1 draw against Senegal.
