A Cameroonian Pop Art Love Story From Singer Reniss

Cameroonian singer Reniss shares the vibrant pop art music video for her latest single "Na You" featuring fellow New Bell Music artist Shey.


Cameroonian singer Reniss shares the gleeful visuals for her single "Na You," a bubbly afro-pop love song featuring fellow New Bell Music artist Shey. The two appear blissful and bright-eyed as they woo one another in a park and dance playfully against a vibrant backdrop of colorful pop art. The single follows Reniss and Shey as they sing about the excitement of blossoming young love in English, Pidgin and in the Cameroonian Mankon dialect. The Ndukong-directed music video—shot in Cameroon’s capital Yaoundé and its outskirts—also sees Reniss rocking a stylishly elaborate updo, likely inspired by J.D. Okhai Ojeikere’s iconic hair photography. Watch the feel-good music video for Reniss’ “Na You” below. For more from the budding singer, check out her latest EP Milkish which dropped earlier this month.

How You Can Help Nigeria’s #EndSARS Protests

We round up some ways you can support the movement and its cause, no matter where you are in the world.

Widespread protests against Nigeria's notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) are becoming more of a revolution. The movement is an outcry from youths demanding a general reform of the country, majorly characterized by poor governance, with a focus on the harassment and assaults committed by SARS. The movement has been raging through the city of Lagos for the past three weeks, as protesters home and abroad have taken to the streets in masses to express their keen dissatisfaction.

Hashtags like #EndSARS, #EndPoliceBrutality, and #EndBadGovernanceInNigeria have brandished across all social media platforms to amplify the voices of the youth people fighting back. These hashtags have, in turn, gained traction with the help of celebrities like singers Rihanna, Demi Lovato, and Beyoncé, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and many others. Nigerian stars, Falz, Runtown, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, and many more also joined in the movement, as many of them took to the streets with placards.

To date, the peacefully protesting Nigerians' needs have not been met. With said needs not being satisfied as they demand justice for lives lost due to the brutal and corrupt practices of police officers.
