Kenyan Musicians – Miss Karun

Miss Karun was one of the biggest stars to come to the fore of Kenyan entertainment in recent history but she decided to cut her career short to get an education. A decision that raised mixed reaction from industry pundits. Personally, I think she should have stayed in Kenya and nurtured her budding career for a year or two before she left. Lady Karun ruled last year and is slated to conquer more of the world this year.
