Reniss Shares 'La Sauce,' A Sizzling Cameroonian Dance Floor Banger

Watch the hilarious music video for Reniss' Cameroonian Bikutsi pop single "La Sauce."

Cameroonian singer & songwriter Reniss shares the music video for “La Sauce,” her latest Bikutsi pop single produced by fellow Cameroonian Jovi aka Le Monstre.


In “La Sauce,” Reniss departs from the bubbly, afro-pop of her last single to deliver an infectious dance floor banger, replete with booming percussion, energetic guitar melodies and pounding bass.

The Ndukong-directed music video takes place in a "quintessential Cameroonian club" where Reniss—once again sporting a retro hairstyle likely influenced by J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere’s iconic hair photography—gives a spirited performance backed by an exuberant group of dancers.

The hilarious video explores the double entendre and innuendos of the phrase 'la sauce' in Cameroonian culture.
