Afternoon Afrobeat (#10): "Party Don't Stop" by Camp Mulla

Yesterdays Afrternoon Afrobeat came from West Africa, so today it only makes sense to move east - more specifically, to Kenya.

Camp Mulla is an emerging Nairobi-based hip-hop group comprised of 4 vocalists and song-writers and their CEO – all of whom are between the ages of 17 and 21, although their voices and style would make you think otherwise.

The youngest member of the band and lead vocalist, Karun Mungai, is only 17. Another member, song-writer, and rapper, Mathew Wakhungu, also manages to be top of his class in high school while balancing his music career. This is obviously a talented bunch to keep an eye on.

Camp Mulla began in 2009 and is quickly becoming one of the favorite hip-hop groups across Africa.  And although they originated as a hip-hop group, they are now beginning to branch into different genres such as house/electro and R&B.

Their goal is “Spreading urban hip-hop all over Africa and globally”, and I think it’s safe to say that they are well on their way.

The song above is Party Don’t Stop, and it’s the song that introduced me to Camp Mulla. If you enjoy it as much as I do and want to keep posted on their activities, stay updated by liking them on Facebook, following them on Twitter, and reading their blog
