This year PUMA celebrates the 20th anniversary of their collaboration with Cameroonian Football Federation by inviting 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 World Cup, MHD, Prince of Afro-trap, created a short music video of Milla’s dance next to the corner flag, one hand on his belly, one hand raised towards the sky, inviting others to dance like the legend of Cameroon.
The video received more than 40 million views and has since turned the jig into a classic celebratory dance used all over the world.
Milla handed over the new jerseys to the squad in an unforgettable green colour with evoKNIT fabric that acts as a lightweight ’second skin’ with cooling fins that regulate body temperature. An interpretation of a roaring lion spans across the jersey dryCELL technology shirt for moisture management and the countries flag adorns the collar reminding us of the teams First Passion.
The Indomitable Lions and future hosts of AFCON 2019 illustrate how much of an influence PUMA enjoys with the African Continent as a whole.
