Introducing Camp Mulla (B-9ja)
20 April 2012, Camp Mulla won the awards for “Teeniez’ Group or Collabo” and “Teeniez’ Nu Artist”. The group is made of Taio Tripper, Young Kass, Karun, their producer – K’Cous and their hype man, Mikey Touchi.
Miss Karun (real name Karun Mungai) is the first lady and the radiant singer of the group. Her high vocal range makes her a force to reckon with and her pitch is flawless.
Young Kass (real name Benoit Kanema) is also a Co-Founder and profound rapper. With a raspy, unique and more than catchy voice, he steals the crowd’s attention and, with his entertaining punch lines and wordplay, hits the jackpot. His personality is incorporated into his rhymes, eluding confidence and swag.
K’Cous (real name Marcus Kibuksoya) is the multi talented producer of the group. He definitely takes a lot of credit for the group’s current and upcoming success. The seriousness he puts into his work clearly reflects on to the impressive tracks he has produced.
Mikey Touchi (real name Michael Mutooni) is the group’s hype man and the group looks up to him as their keystone social-media connector.
All the members have completed their high school education and will soon join university. They started their music dream all at young ages and cannot remember a day that they were not doing music.
Their first single “Party Don’t Stop” whose video was directed by Nigeria’s very own Clarence Peters launched them into the lime light playing in all major music channels around Africa and the globe.
They call their musical style “2-5-Flow” or “254Low” (pronounced two five flow), which is a pun of Kenya’s calling code +254. It is an infusion of Hip-Hop and R&B with a sense that has Kenya written all over it. And, with their debut album “Funky Town” slated for this summer, I can imagine how many people can’t wait to get their hands on it.
Camp Mulla is definitely a force to reckon within the industry as they ooze their own freshly made brew of swag and coolness that we can feel all across the African continent.
