Karun is an Alternative RnB musician from Nairobi, Kenya. Her current sound is a mix of RnB/soul with Afro-pop influences. Her career may have started with the BET-nominated hip-hop group Camp Mulla in her early teens, but since the group disbanded, she has been on her own steady trajectory, crafting her sound and creating her own path.
Karun’s solo catalog consists of notable R&B singles such as “Here With Me” & “Catch A Vibe”, both of which are Afro-pop-inspired love songs from her sophomore EP of the same title. She is well known for her song “Glow Up”, a body-positive, femme anthem that premiered on Mr. Eazi’s Empawa Africa program. She has also recently featured on songs with Grammy award-winning artists such as Juls’ “Say You Love Me”, and Savara of Sauti sol’s “VIBRATION”.
For one so young, Karun is a tour de force. She has made notable career strides such as being featured on Forbes Top 30 Under 30 Africa list (2019), winning awards such as “R&B artist of the year” at the Cafe Ngoma Awards, and being awarded an AFRIMA nomination in 2021.
She has also had songs that landed on TV shows such as Fox TV’s “The Resident” (S02E12) and collaborated with Focusrite on their official Scarlett 2i2 promo and more.
Above all Karun’s music is honest, and meditative as she aims to inspire young artists to walk their own path and create timeless music.
