Alternative R&B pop artist Karungari Mungai alias Karun has shed some light on why she exited the BET-nominated pop group Camp Mulla at the peak of her career.
According to the 25-year-old, she was overwhelmed by the fame that came with being part of the now-defunct pop music collective.
Speaking to a local daily, Karun said she only 16 years old at the time and the pressure couldn’t allow her to experiment.
“I was tired of the fame. It was stifling me. I couldn’t make any mistake. I couldn’t experiment. I couldn’t really find out who I was or who I wanted to be because of people’s eyes I was already that girl from Camp Mulla,” the Standard quoted Karun.
The ‘Glow Up’ singer explained that Camp Mulla was going through a rough time behind the scenes and the BET nomination came at a time when they were splitting up.
Karun has since gone on to be named in Forbes Africa 30 Under 30 2019 list – Creatives Category.
