Reniss Drops 'Pilon,' a Cameroonian Dance Banger for Independent Women

Cameroonian singer & songwriter Reniss shares her latest single "Pilon," an energetic dance track produced by Jovi.

Cameroonian singer & songwriter Reniss shares her latest single "Pilon," an energetic dance track produced by New Bell Music label ringleader Jovi under his alias Le Monstre.


The track—built on a blend of rapid keys, guitars and frenetic drum work—showcases a fusion of several Cameroonian genres as Reniss continues the ardent French delivery we heard in her previous single "La Sauce."

"Pilon" is a song that "celebrates women's independence," the singer mentions. " Its lyrics play on the title, "which means 'pestle' in English, referring to the mortar and pestle, a staple in cooking in Cameroon and throughout Africa."

Falz’s ‘Squander’ Remix Will Get You Dancing In No Time

The single features Niniola and South African amapiano acts Kamo Mphela, Mpura and SayFar.

Nigerian award-winning rapper, songwriter, and actor Falz makes his debut into the South African music scene with a remix of his hit single "Squander" featuring South Africa's Kamo Mphela, Mpura, and SayFar alongside the Nigerian Afro-House queen Niniola, who was on the original.

Produced by Young Willis and SayFar, the single has an infectious energy that will get you dancing in no time. We didn't expect anything less from breakout vocalist Mpura whose single "Umsebenzi Wethu" is currently topping multiple streaming charts. Amapiano singer and choreographer Kamo Mphela, known for her striking dance moves and collaborations with prominent artists like Busiswa & DJ Maphorisa, also continues to solidify her name in the industry with this feature.

Falz's ability to create music that reflects on the realities of many Nigerians has made him one of Nigeria's boldest voices. This is, however, one of the first times we see him pique interest in collaborating with South African artists. "I love South Africa, I love the culture and the food. I am really excited about this remix with Kamo Mphela, Mpura & SayFar because it's a great blend of South African & Nigerian music."

While he is not in the studio producing hits, Falz is a judge in the third season of The Voice Nigeria. The other judges include Nigerian singer and vocalist Waje, Afropop singer Yemi Alade, and the creative director of Livesport360, Dare Art Alade.

"Squander" remix is now available on all streaming platforms.
