Os Modeloz – Models, producers or singers, the duo can do everything. Os Modeloz has been busy this year working on their new album and with the release of their song « Go low. » But, Stélio and Enzon have more things up their sleeves for you, like a new song, a new video and a project that will leave everyone in awe.
« Os Modeloz » is composed of Stélio Cardiny and Enzon Tarantiny. The name « Os Modeloz » was inspired by fashion because besides being musicians, they are also publicity and catwalk professional models.
Have your careers started as models or as musicians?
We started as musicians. It never crossed our minds to be catwalk and publicity models. We’ve always loved music.
The love of music was so strong that it made us work harder on our lyrics and our image because « Os Modeloz » are blood brothers, friends of each other.
We have the same fighting spirit, we do not give up easily, we can understand each other, this has made us successful to this day.
What was the event that started you careers as professional models?
It was an invitation from a friend for us to be models because he saw a potential for us to be part of the fashion world.
We did a casting with the Agency « L.S Models » and we were analyzed by Alex Kangala and Fredy Costa and we passed the test that to this day we are models.
What is the name of the first song that was released by Os Modeloz? When was that?
The first song to be released by us was « Domino« . It was released in 2011. But before that, we already had songs when the group « United » existed.
In early 2004 and 2005, the group consisted of four members. At the time, the name of the group was called (UNITED)
Who was part of the group the « United »?
The group « United » was composed of Stélio Cardiny, Enzon Tarantiny, Helio B, and Black Weza R.I.P.
What songs have been released by this group?
There were many songs made by the group. But unfortunately, they were not released due to lack of sponsorship.
Why change the name from « Os Modelos » to « Os Modeloz »?
We decided to change our name because, we thought that with « Os Modeloz » with the letter (Z), we would not be confused with models of car, machine, telephone … this would also help the public find our videos and music faster on digital platforms.
How did you get the opportunity to join the record label Powerhouse?
We, Os Modeloz, did some sound assembly and decoration in studios. We had a friend named Dipac who had the opportunity to see what we did and had told us that Hochi Fu wanted to open a record label and we were hired to do the job.
We did the work and we were noticing that it would work, but when Hochi Fu called us to make the payment for the service done at the time it was five thousand American dollars. We did not accept the money and we talk with Hochi Fu. We told him that we were also musicians and that we make music and we wanted to be part of the record label. He liked our attitude and accepted our request.
As video producers, who did you work with?
We have already worked with many musicians in Angola like Ana Joice, Afrikanas, Shelby da Mata, Silvia Freitas, Anselmo Ralph, Coreon Dú, Doctor Smith, The Supremos, Corporal Snoop, A Dupla… And in Nigeria, with the musician Jay Martins. They are so many of them that we already lost count.
The first album from « Os Modeloz » was released in 2013 with the title « movie ». Because they consider their lives to be like a movie.
You guys are working on a new album, when will it be released?
We are almost at the end of the recordings of our album. But we do not have a specific release date.
The first song from this album « Go Low » was released this year, how was the song received by the public?
The song « Go Low » is being well received by the public and we already have a date for the video which will be done sometime next month (November 2017). The second song of the album will also be released in November 2017.
