BET Award nominee Camp Mulla’s music has its roots in hip hop, but infuses influences from different genres ranging from House/Electro to R&B. Established 2009, the group had their first public appearance in early 2011 and has since then been recognized internationally. Their much anticipated debut album “Funky Town” was released in August 2012 and included five hit singles, such as the club banger “Party Don’t Stop”. Some of the major achievements of Camp Mulla include being the first East African artists to top charts on MTV Base, Trace TV and BET. The group recently scooped two awards at the Chaguo la Teeniez (CHAT) Awards, Kenya’s premier youth awards.
