      I’m sorry, who are you to decide what can or cannot be considered a profession? Don’t knock another’s hustle, use the energy to build on yours.

      It’s not about been a profession according society, it’s her doing what she’s passionate about. And, being in an area that’s male dominated is inspiring. Also, the fact that she’s not just spending her father’s money, she’s working.

      Open your mind. Don’t be one of those who refuse to let their children believe they can be anything.

    I’ve learnt that it takes bravery to support women who are doing their bits…. sometimes we get bitter or saddened when we see people succeeding but the honest truth is when you support people rather than bashing them something happens that desire to work and embrace it all. whether it was paid for or not she’s doing her bits, she’s networking. Even the wealthiest person will tell you that networking has an important role to play in whatever business your doing. I am not where I want to be but I will support women to be great and dream more… When we support people we become brave and courageous enough to go out and do something for ourselves….. That’s all I have to say!!!

    Yes my name is Chika and i have come to comment on all the hate comments. Una too dey do, Kilodem! You can’t see something good and praise it? So a rich person can not have talent again abi? DJ Cuppy carry on with your fine self jare, all this alabosi that don’t have anything better to do than to bash you clearly adore you in secret. When Davido dey blow na the same thing dem talk o and meanwhile people were actually reaching out to the kid. I just like how the girl keeps putting herself in peoples faces, the more you talk shit, the more you’re gonna see her face bitcheeeeeees! Hahahaha

    some people are just so poor that they never believe someone that is working is earning money aswell. i expected people to say her dads influence helped her to become this famous and comfortable at her job. because if it some lady dj struggling people will question her. abeg give the girl a break and appreciate her effort….. for a fact shes a GOOD DJ.

    the ‘beehive’ hair style, as one person called it, is her signature.

    you’re young, try new things…

    To set the records clear. Forbes Africa is fonding of celebrating the so called economic oppressors like madam diezani on the front cover. Besides i prefer a grass to grace story which is more inspiring.. there are loads of people in male dominated industries such as pilots etec.. so no big deal to a DJ

    If it’s one Oyinbo, people will say “oh, so cute and to think she is a lady”. If it’s a poor upcoming female DJ, people will say “this is so cool, let’s try and support her”. Please why does it has to be different with dj cuppy, because she is rich? If a white man says some thing like “she is only on Forbe because her father is rich”, everyone here will yab him. We will say why does he think Nigerians can’t do anything good for themselves. Let’s try to appreciate one another or SHUT UP.
