Public appearances and performances
Camp Mulla got their first public appearance on 12 February 2011 at Collo's Valentine's Day concert, where he was to reveal the music video for his new song, Chini ya Maji.
At the same time he was to introduce Camp Mulla in public to perform for the first time.
Camp Mulla was the opening act for Nigerian R&B duo P-Square at a live performance at Carnivore, Lang'ata, Nairobi on 26 February 2011.
Camp Mulla also opened for Nigerian acts at Naija 9te (or Naija Nite) including Naeto C and Flavour on October 2011.
They have also recently made huge appearances at hip hop events, school concerts and award-shows such as the Chaguo La Teeniez Awards.
Majority of Camp Mulla's songs incorporate Hip Hop and Contemporary R&B respectively.
However, a close listen to some of their tracks also clearly indicate their producer Marcus operates within an 'expanded' Kenyan mind state, such as their song Addictedi.
They call their musical style "2-5-Flow" or "254Low" (pronounced two five flow), which is a pun of Kenya's calling code +254. "254Low" is also said to be the name of their soon to be launched multi-talented fraternity, which will feature young Kenyan upcoming artists believed to be the future of the newly reformed music industry.
