DJ Cuppy

BIOGRAPHY

DJ Cuppy is a Nigerian DJ, producer, musician, and businesswoman with a faster-rising career. Her true name is Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola. She was born on November 11, 1992, to Femi Otedola, a well-known Nigerian businessman.

The stunning and sophisticated diva was born and raised in Lagos, where she attended the Grange School in Ikeji. She went to London at the age of 13 for her GCSEs and A-Levels, graduating from King’s College London in 2014 with a degree in business and economics, and then earning her Music Business Master’s Degree from New York University in 2015 while interning at Jay-Z’s Roc Nation imprint.

Thanks to her endearing personality and evident work ethic, she had already established herself as one of Africa’s top DJs throughout her adolescent years. She made her debut in the industry in 2014, when she was chosen as a DJ for the MTV Africa Music Awards.

She issued her debut compilation mix, titled “The House of Cuppy,” in July 2014, in which she made EDM-style remixes of songs by top Afropop musicians. With a follow-up mix titled “The House of Cuppy II,” released in June 2015, she took on a stronger afro-house bent.

Cuppy in 2015, was featured on the cover of the Guardian Life magazine and was as well named the official DJ for the 2015 Oil Barons Charity in Dubai, and became the first African act to perform at the event.

In order to perpetuate her Pan-African brand beyond Nigeria, she went on an eight-country DJ tour dubbed “Cuppy Takes Africa,” during which she toured Ghana, Senegal, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, and South Africa. The tour was documented, and Fox Life aired a documentary series with the same title.
