Camp Mulla

Bio

Camp Mulla is a Kenyan alternative hip hop group originating from and based in Nairobi, Kenya. It is considered one of the most exciting upcoming music groups in Kenya, and has grown a big fan base on social media, garnering over 40,000 fans on Facebook and over 30,000 followers on Twitter. Following their release of their debut studio album, Funky Town, the group's members decided to go on hiatus.

The group has been criticized by several adults aged 30 and above for their 'bubblegum music' and their musical style, fashion sense and origins have drawn comparisons to The Black Eyed Peas

After honing their skills through a series of experimental projects, Mykie Toni and rappers Shappaman (then known as Young Kass) and Thee MC Africa (then known as Taio Tripper) co-founded the group in mid-2009. Karun (then Miss Karun) and Kus Ma (then K'Cous) later joined.

They released their first single, 'Party Don't Stop' on 31 August 2010 to generally positive critical acclaim. This and other songs that followed won them several awards, including the 'Teeniez' Group or Collabo' and 'Teeniez' Nu Artist' awards at the 2012 Chaguo La Teeniez Awards held on 20 April 2012.

They were nominated in the 2012 BET Awards for the 'Best International Act - Africa' category, becoming the first Kenyans ever to be nominated for a BET award in the process, alongside Lira, Mokobé and Ice Prince, but losing to eventual winners Sarkodie and Wizkid.

On 29 September 2012, the group released their first studio album, Funky Town, and thereafter decided to go on hiatus. Lead singer Karun released her first solo studio album Sun and Moon on 11 January 2014, while rapper Thee MC Africa released an extended play, Man Made Machine, on 6 June later the same year.
