Jeremie Frimpong and Nathan Tella celebrated Bayer Leverkusen's Bundesliga triumph in style after hitting the dance floor to a popular Ghanaian song.

The song, titled Kolom, was composed by Ghanaian music duo, Buk Bak, and was a hit jam in 2012.

Frimpong and Tella starred for Leverkusen as the club won its first-ever Bundesliga title on Sunday after beating Werder Bremen at the BayArena.

In a video that has since gone viral on social media, the players - who both have African heritage - are seen having the time of their life as they perform the Azonto dance to the song.

Both players have been instrumental in the title run with Frimpong in particular scoring eight goals and providing eight assists in 27 Bundesliga games this season, per Transfermarkt.

Frimpong, who plays for the Dutch national team was born to Ghanaian parents in the Netherlands and mostly visits the West African nation during vacation.

Meanwhile, Tella was born to Nigerian parents in England and recently switched allegiance to play for the Super Eagles.

The new German champions are on course to win an unprecedented treble after reaching the final of the DFB-Pokal and have a foot in the semi-final of the Europa League.

Bayer Leverkusen travel to England on Thursday for the second leg of their Europa League second-leg quarter-final clash against West Ham United.

Boniface inspires German Bundesliga success

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Victor Boniface made history after helping Leverkusen win their first Bundesliga title in his first season in the German league.

The 23-year-old Nigerian forward was on target for the second game running as Leverkusen defeated Werder Bremen to clinch the title with five games remaining.

Boniface opened the scoring from the spot after 25 minutes to give the hosts the lead before Granit Xhaka and a hat-trick from Florian Wirtz sealed their victory.
