D.O.S is a pop group founded by the late Meny Ema and Deremi Adewunmi during their high school years in king’s college Lagos. The group originally consisted of 7 members but later reduced to 3 members.
D.O.S released their 1st single “Can’t Stop” in the summer of 2008. The song helped build substantial followership for the group, particularly in the University of Lagos where they were undergraduates at the time, and allowed the group to grace the same stages as artists such as 9ice, Banky W, Rooftop MCs and a host of others. However due to in-house differences, the group again reduced to 2 members leaving Deron (Deremi) and Dee-Y (Dayo) as the only remaining members of the group.
After spending sometime behind the scenes rebranding and harnessing their talents, the two brothers by birth, Deron and Dee-y, redefined their sound, snowballing their separate experiences and uniqueness into the musical phenomenon that is today D.O.S.
The recently released “Folashade”, the 1st single from the yet to be named D.O.S album is currently getting a lot of buzz across the internet. 2011 marks the official launch of D.O.S into the mainstream market. The joint was produced by Deron (one half of the group) and written by both members.
The video for “Folashade” should drop in May, 2011 and their album is scheduled to be released before the end of the year.
“Folashade” is basically a feel good song and even though not much is said, it ginjahs people to dance and sing along. It’s a blend of funky house with a little bit of techno and a touch of the Nigerian music flavour to bring it back home a bit.
Yup! Get familiar!
