Kenya’s Award-Winning Afro Hip-Hop Group Camp Mulla Splits!

It seems the break-up virus has hit Kenya as well. BET Award-nominated Afro Hip-Hop crew, Camp Mulla have been on the rise on the African scene ever since they dropped their hit single, “Party Don’t Stop”.

Ever since, the group has been nominated for the Headies, MOBO’s, MTV Europe Music Awards, Kora Awards, Channel O Music Video Awards, BET Awards, BEFFTA Awards and won 2 Kenyan Chaguo La Teeniez Awards.

But, it seems that the crew has been on shaky ground for a while now as two of its core members, TheeMcAfrica (formerly Taio Tripper) & Miss Karun (who left for university in the USA)have left the group to pursue solo careers. (The two in the middle in the photo above)

It first came to our notice at the MTV Africa All Stars Concert in Durban when the two members didn’t show up at the career-making performance, with a new singer, Tiri, replacing Miss Karun in the line-up.

Their performance featured popular Kenyan artist Collo and introduced the hot newcomer, Tiri. Camp Mulla gave the crowd an exclusive listen to their new collabo, Chafua”, while Tiri also launched her first banger, “Mash Up”.

Then, a few moments ago, Channel O Africa confirmed the split via their Instagram page when they uploaded the above photo of remaining members, Kus Ma & Shappaman, with the caption:

“Rest assured @campmulla from Kenya is still up and kicking cc @shappaman …. However previous artists from the group #MissKarun and #TheeMcAfticahave left to pursue solo careers. We wish them all the very best.#OriginalAfrican”

What do you think is left of the future of Kenya’s Camp Mulla?

    I dont know why when a group has a taste of success, they suddenly feel they are good to split & branch out as solo artists and be successful …that has only worked for a very few artist who are usually already the main star of extremely famous groups.

    Staying as a group is going to be hard for these very young artists. Because they taste the exhilarating rush of success and immediately want to be like DBanj.
    It takes loyalty and focus to stay as a group. According to styl plus “4 years don waka, we still dey carry go. Nobody waka, nobody go solo. Baba God e, na your grace o, adupe o.”

    Please Camp Mulla to me is useless now. The two members that left were my favorites. Especially Miss Karum. xx

    I was a fan of the group until a few months back. I got tired of their rehashed beats and unoriginal style, sound, and everything. Nothing about them was original.
