If you didn’t know her before,( its a wonder which rock you have been living under, because i mean, who doesn’t know DJ Cuppy?) meet Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola, daughter of billionaire Femi Otedola, the Chaiman of Forte Oil Plc. She is one of Nigeria’s foremost celebrity Disc Jockeys and producers, and by far one of our favorites. There are many reasons why we think she is quite an amazing person, but we will be talking about 5 of these reasons.
SHE HAS AN ABSOLUTELY PLEASING PERSONALITY: She’s beautiful. As in… who doesn’t love a pretty girl? We know we do, and we know she has got this beauty, this cuteness about her, that just draws you in and engages you. Add that to her bubbly and easy going personality, you can’t help but just be into her. And then she now loves cupcakes again, who doesn’t love cupcakes? Nough’ said.
SHE’S NOT JUST BEAUTY BUT BRAINS TOO: DJ Cuppy, like a number of some of our favorite celebrities, breaks the stereotype, she is not a “school drop out”, but a college graduate. She has a degree in Business and Economics from King’s college, London, and has recently completed her Master’s in Music business in New York University. At the risk of sounding sapiosexual, “educated is the new sexy”.Yay or yay? Well obviously the yays have it.
SHE’S GOT A HEART: Our favorite female DJ is also known for her humanitarian deeds. She has championed campaigns to bring aid to the much less privileged in the society. In 2015 she took on a tour which she title “Cuppy Takes Africa” #CuppyTakesAfrica, where she, in partnership with Guaranteed Trust Bank and The Dangote Foundation, visited a number of African Countries, including Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal, Uganda, Kenya, South Africa and a host of others, bringing both financial aid and welfare/relief materials with them. Not everyone who knows the importance of giving back to the society actually makes time to. She does, and enjoys it. Bless her soul.
SHE IS AWESOME AT AND LOVES WHAT SHE DOES: This Ilupeju Lagos born 24 years old beauty, ventured into Djing at the age of 18 and has since then soared in her career. In 2015 she performed at the Presidential Inauguration of Muhammadu Buhari, the President of Nigeria. And then later on in November of the same year she made an appearance in MTV’s “Uncommon sense”,where she hung out with the likes of Charlamagne and T-pain. In 2014 she was the resident DJ at the MTV Africa Music Awards held in Durban, and then also blazed the “wheels of steel” at the Financial Times Luxury Summit in Mexico. Her career is filled with such appearances, which only points to one thing, her ingenuity in what she does.
SHE IS AN AFRICAN PRINT’S LOVER: One of the major reasons why she is on our minds today, is because she is not only known for her Disc Jockeying or sound production skills, she is an ardent lover of African prints and African fashion as a whole, and you know how much we love celebrities who stay true to their roots, yes? DJ Cuppy has been seen time and time again, on countless occasions, rocking different African prints and African inspired attires. This as mentioned earlier is the major reason why we love her.
Florence “DJ Cuppy” Otedola, is an amazing lady, one to keep an eye out for and one certainly to love and admire. She is all shades of amazing. If you didn’t know before, we hope these 667 words have made it undoubtedly known to you now.
