And yes it is indeed because it’s a dream come true for many hip hop lovers that have loved her music since she dropped on the scene in 99. Known for her witty rhymes, she was known to fans as the cutest chick in the game, adored for her for her sexy lips and thick curves.

Last Friday, Kenya’s rising teen music sensation Camp Mulla with the help of top Nigerian video director Clarence Peters released their highly awaited videos for the songs ‘Addicted’ and ‘Party Don’t Stop’ featuring Collo. The video launch was an industry affair attended by hundreds of top industry personalities including radio hosts, video DJs, artist’s producers, promoters, entertainment journalists, and also fans. During the one of a kind video launch at Prestige Plaza, Nairobi it was evident that these have been the best pop videos ever produced in Kenya paying attention to international quality acceptable to global music TV stations such as Channel O, MTV and Trace.

Watch the Camp Mulla 'party Dont Stop Video'

In the late 90s and early 2000s the Kenya pop music scene underwent a boom with artists like Five Alive, Jabali Afrika, Hardstone, and Mercy Myra making major waves with a lot of hit music. After that wave came another wave of even more energetic artists such as Nameless, Redsan, Big Pin, Juacali, Nonini, Prezzo, Kleptomaniacs and a few others. But then something very interesting happened in the mid 2000s– there was a lull. The industry became monotonous with no interesting acts, no competition and no innovation. Kenyans have been starved for new talent for over 5 years – there’s always a light at the end of a tunnel, recently entered new comers Camp Mulla in 2011.

This event was jointly sponsored by Mtech Ltd, who’s MD – Iyke – was responsible for flying top Nigerian director Clarence Peters to direct the videos, and Sub Sahara Ltd currently the producers of Camp Mulla. Clarence Peters jetted into the country for a week to do the video like he has done for Africa’s most successful artistes such as P-square, Wiz-Kid and many more. Camp Mulla consists of Marcus ‘K’Cous’ Kibukosya (producer, composer, rapper), Benoit ‘Kass’ Kanema (rapper), Mathew ‘Tripper’ Wakhungu (composer, rapper), Karun Mungai (singer) and Mykie Tuchi (Manager).They are currently working on their debut album.

Camp Mulla Fans

The one prominent thing that you could hear from the roaring crowd of industry personalities, players and fans was the delight that this group; Camp Mulla has a fresh Nairobi sound and are probably that one group that will take the Kenyan music scene to an international level. Young energetic and amped; Camp Mulla are the new age K-South or Kalamashaka taking Kenya to that next level. Times have changed and music is very different at this moment. I would love you to watch out for Camp Mulla’s promising career as they keep soaring to greater heights. Enjoy the videos. To find out more go to:
