Camp Mulla is a Kenyan hip hop group originating from and based in Nairobi, Kenya.
The group has grown a big fanbase over a short period, already having over 30,000 fans on Facebook, over 25,000 followers on Twitter (more than any other successful Kenyan artist) and over 150 followers on SoundCloud.
The group is considered one of the most exciting upcoming music groups in Kenya, if not East Africa. However, many adults of the age of 30 and above have criticised their "bubblegum music", according to the Buzz feature on the Sunday Nation website.
During the 2012 Chaguo La Teeniez Awards held on 20 April 2012, Camp Mulla won the awards for "Teeniez' Group or Collabo" and "Teeniez' Nu Artist".
Camp Mulla were nominated in the 2012 BET Awards for the "Best International Act - Africa" category, becoming the first Kenyans to ever be nominated for a BET award in the process, alongside Lira, Mokobé and Ice Prince,but losing to eventual winners Sarkodie and Wizkid. However, they were denied United States visas to Los Angeles, California for the event due to having applied on short notice. They then decided to apply for a special case visa, which only applies to those travelling for medical reasons, political asylum or political administration appointments, citing "major awards show nomination" as their reason. They decided to go for an interview earlier than scheduled to give them more time before the awards. They were told that they could not interview before the scheduled date and could not therefore attend the awards.

Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun a.k.a Wizkid is a talented singer, songwriter and performer. He kicked off his singing career at the early age of 11 when he recorded his first song with one of Nigeria’s celebrated music icons, OJB Jezreel. He went on to record a 7-track album, which he released in his church in Lagos, under the name of Lil’ Prinz; this was just a stint that earned him a remarkable deal of encouragement and recognition from family, his church and other artistes.
Years later in 2006, with a new stage name, and a passion for making music and God-given talent, Wizkid got back into the studio to hone his craft. He continued to develop as a Singer and Songwriter by working under some of Nigeria’s biggest Musical names such as OJB Jezreel, Naeto C, Ikechukwu and many others. Over the next few years his talent as a Singer and Songwriter became evident and it resulted in Wiz being prominently featured alongside some of the biggest Artistes in Nigeria’s Music Industry to much critical and commercial acclaim.
2009 would prove to be Wizkid’s break-out year, as his collaboration with M.I on “Fast Money, Fast Cars” on the Talk About It album drew major attention to his distinct voice, singing style and penchant for great songwriting. He went on to feature on Kel’s “Turn by Turn”, the Barcelos radio jingle and many other high profile projects. He also got signed to Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment, and featured prominently on Banky’s “The W Experience” album.
At the age of 20, this extremely talented and charming young man had already achieved so much, thanks to his drive and focus for turning his life’s experiences into incredible music. In 2010, he released his first singles, “Holla at your Boy”, “Gidi Girl” and “Ori Mi” with label mate, Skales; then there was the hit song, “Tease Me” which was just a studio freestyle that got leaked online and turned into a big hit in different parts of Nigeria and among Nigerians worldwide.
