In celebrating their 20th partnership, PUMA and the Federation of Cameroonian Football (FECAFOOT) have launched a new shirt for the Indomitable Lions.

The giant Sports Manufacturer has collaborated with Cameroonian and African football legend, Roger Milla and Afro-trap artist, MHD to join the squad for the launch of the new home jersey.

Paying homage to the unlikely icon at the the 1990 FIFA World Cup, MHD the Prince of Afro-trap, has created a short music video of Milla's dance next to the corner flag.

In the video, Milla had one hand on his belly and one hand raised towards the sky and invites others to dance like the legend of Cameroon.

In a statement, it is revealed that the video received more than 40 million views and has since turned the jig into a classic celebratory dance used all over the world.

“The Indomitable Lions and hosts of of the 2019 CAF African Cup of Nations tournament illustrate how much of an influence PUMA enjoys with the African Continent as a whole.”
