Kenya’s multiple-award winning hip-hop group, Camp Mulla have split, with 2 of its members pursuing solo careers.
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”
I pray someone finds a cure for this break-up epidemic soon!
