I Picked My Stage Name From My Favourite Snack – DJ Cuppy

DJ CuppyFemale disc jockey, Florence Otedola, popularly known as DJ Cuppy is gradually making her mark in the very dynamic Nigerian music industry after years of practicing in the UK.

In an interview with Channels Television’s correspondent, Bidemi Dairo, the Nigerian DJ said she picked her stage name from her favorite snack, cupcakes.

“When I decided to be a DJ, cupcake came naturally, but I decided to drop the cup from the name and came up with Cuppy,” she said.

A graduate of law from the Kings College London, Cuppy began her desire to be a DJ at the age of 16, with personal practice and watching other DJs.

With the backing of her father, Femi Otedola, she produced her own version of Tunji Oyelano’s ‘I Love My country’ which earned her tourism ambassadorial honour.

I love my country is followed up by the House of Cuppy mix tape which infuses some electronic sounds to already popular Nigerian songs.

Burna Boy Parts Ways With Record Label

Burna-BoyHip hop singer, Burna Boy, has parted ways with the record label, Aristokrat Records that brought him to limelight.

According to reports, the ‘Yawa Dey Oh’ crooner is no longer with AR, and his new video ‘Don Gorgon’ does not have AR imprint on it.

The record label has removed everything about Burna on its social media.

The cause for the friction between the talented star and his former record label could not be ascertained but sources say the friction may have stemmed from Burna Boy’s lifestyle and his mother’s deep involvement in his career.

Burna Boy, who came into the music scene with ‘Like To Party’ hit, is said to have fired his mum as manager.

Little known Burna signed with Aristokrat in July 2011, released two mixtapes ‘Burn Notice’ and ‘Burn Identity’ in April and November 2011 respectively.

He then went on to drop the mid-tempo hit record ‘Like to Party’ in mid-2012. With two other successful singles ‘Tonight’ and ‘Run my race’, Burna rose to fame, making a name for himself.
