K-South was founded in 1995. Their name is an abbrevation of Kariobangi South, a poor estate in Nairobi where they were based.

The group used both English and Swahili in their music as language. Their debut album Nairobbery was released in 2002 by Samawati Studios. The album contained some of their earlier hits like "Tabia Mbaya". Also on the album was the track "Illektrikk Posse", featuring Zimbawean rapper Mizchif and Ugandan artists Bebe Cool. K-South's second and final album Nairobizm was released in 2004.

One of its most played tracks was "Kapuka", which coined Kapuka, a derogatory term referring to more commercial artists. After the album they left Samawati label due to disputes [1]. K-South were featured on "Sitaki", a popular track by Mercy Myra, a Kenyan R&B female musician. The duo was disbanded in 2005, when Bamboo left the group after becoming a devout christian. Bamboo has since concentrated on gospel rap [2]. Earlier, Bamboo was riding high with his secular solo track "Compe".

Jerry Doobiez is now performing under new stage name Abas and released album Angabanga in 2006. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
