Official song:“再恋STORY” (reading: sairen story)
A 2-man, rap vocal unit from Osaka made up of ko-ji (28) and yoshio (27). Former entertainer ko-ji and ex-band member yoshio create a world of highly sensitive lyrics and melodies which have earned these MCs domestic and international acclaim. In the Kansai area they have a huge pulling power and can attract over 1,000 fans when they perform. They are the hottest new artists of this year and in 2010 have made the breakthrough away from the nightclub circuit.
yoshio (in charge of writing the lyrics and tunes)
Was signed by his local football team throughout elementary-junior high school. A big football fan.
ko-ji (in charge of writing lyrics）
Plans to put together a futsal team made up of Osaka artists.
Yoshio’s comments on “風流～fool you”:
Having our song selected to be the “East Asian Football Championships 2010 Official Song” is an honor that leaves me speechless.
This song is based on the theme of “continuing to hope for something” and in fact this is what football taught me to do ever since I began playing in elementary school. Swapping the ball for a microphone I continued to hope for something and my dream came true.
I truly hope our song can enter the hearts of the players and of the fans to encourage the competition to heat up even more! Thank you!
