Former Camp Mulla singer Miss Karun has for the first time opened up on her exit from popular hip hop group at the peak of her career.
I was tired of the fame – Miss Karun opens up on her exit from Camp Mulla
I was just 16 - Karun
Speaking to a local daily, the 25 year-old said she was tired of the fame that came with being part of the group that was once nominated for the BET Awards.
She stated that the pressure was too much for her and it could not allow her to be herself or just the 16 year-old that she was at the time.
Karun went on to say that fans had expectation and they wanted her to do a specific type of music and whenever she did anything different she felt the pressure.
“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.
Miss Karun however, noted that after quitting Camp Mulla, she finally got the much needed freedom to be herself.
Miss Karun revealed that the group was going through a rough time behind the scenes and the BET nomination came at a time when they were splitting up.
Camp Mulla is a hip hop group that rose to fame in 2010 after the release of their hit song ‘Party don’t stop’ and was followed with subsequent songs that earned them a BET awards nomination in 2012 for Best International Act.
They however, split in 2013 with most of the group members pursuing solo careers.
