Often considered a veteran in Singapore’s YouTube scene, Dee Kosh has been giving us quality content for 9 years and counting. From his first ever video back in 2011, it just takes a little scrolling and stalking to witness Dee Kosh’s glow up to the personality we know and love today.
Dee has never shied away from the scathing hot (and sometimes unpopular) takes, even starting a wholea** podcast—The Tea with Dee—just to keep listeners up to date with the latest goss.
In between his hilarious YouTube videos, and his yearly Top 10 Idiots of Singapore countdown that we so fervently look forward to, Dee splits his time between participating in Night Owl Cinematics activities and hosting his own show on POWER 98, amongst other content creation.
This week, we speak to Dee Kosh on the 5 soundtracks of his life.
Tell us your name, and how you’d describe yourself to someone whom you’re meeting for the first time.
Hi! My name is Dee Kosh and I’m a YouTuber, radio DJ, podcast host and a fried chicken connoisseur.
What are the five tracks of your life?
1. What’s Up? – 4 Non Blondes
2. I Know What You Want – Busta Rhymes, Mariah Carey & Flipmode Squad
3. Yesterday – Mary Mary
4. Kiss From A Rose – Seal
5. The Warrior Is A Child – Twila Paris
Why would you consider this playlist to be significant to you?
These are songs that have either gotten me through horrible situations, bring back amazing milestones in my life or have awakened me to a new part of me in some way. Anytime I hear any of these songs, I get the goosebumps and/or shed a tear.
Pick one track and tell me your fondest/most interesting memory of it.
Kiss From A Rose – This is when knew I loved music. The musicality in this song is probably not the best, but for a young kid, this was enough for me to look into modulation and songwriting and all that jazz.
I would say this song made me fall deeper in love with music. Made me expand my horizons in terms of what music I listened to.
If I had asked you this question 10 years ago, what is the one track that your then-self would have picked as your favourite?
10 years ago I was a young boy going into army. I was scared. I was nervous. I was excited. And i would have to say Mary Mary’s Yesterday really got me through it.
Its interesting because the song is titled yesterday but it’s really about Tomorrow. Its about leaving yesterday in the past and looking to tomorrow for a better future.
