Former Camp Mullah singer Karun Mungai better known as Miss Karun has been featured by Forbes Africa.

Sharing the news on Instagram, Miss Karun stated that she has been listed by Forbes Africa as amongst some of the greatest creatives on the continent in 2019 under 30.

The Interlude hitmaker who dropped her much-acclaimed Sun & Moon album in 2014 added that it was a great honor to be featured amongst other African greats in the industry.

“As I celebrate a quarter-century on this planet, I’m forced to reflect on what a f*****g trip this has been! This past week has been quite challenging but I can’t help but feel excited for what’s to come!

“What’s made this birthday even better was receiving news that I’ve been named amongst some of the greatest creatives on the continent such as Burna Boy, Petit Noir Vintage, Sho Madjozi, Shekhinah and more,” stated Karun.

The 25-year-old noted in her caption that she didn’t want to impose her successes on her followers and took a whole week to reveal the nod by Forbes.

"I feel so honoured, but this doesn’t come without a touch of #impostersyndrome (and I guess that’s why it’s taken me a whole week to even post about it), but I’m also so grateful to be recognised among some of the previous winners such as, Cassper Nyovest, Yemi Alade, Kwesta, and Nasty C being artists I’ve looked up to during my career.

“This only affirms to me that I am indeed, doing something right, and that gives me a whole lot more motivation to keep on keeping on as I craft some more dope content for you guys! So here’s to my own Glow Up journey," she posted.

The only female member of the first Kenyan act to be nominated for Best International Act at the 2012 BET Awards rose to prominence as a vocalist in their debut single "Party Don't Stop" in 2010.
