    how many years has this one been in the industry that she is speaking about it. who knows her sef? outside bellanaija who knows dj cuppy?

    how many accolades has she won?
    pls she shouldn’t speak on behalf of nigerian musicians. she is too new with zero credibility.
    but I guess money can buy anything.

      WOW! So much hate in your words, abi is it anger? LOL. You need to chill and not be so negative against another human being. Were you present? Did you hear her speak? Do you know what her personal opinions/reservations about the music industry are? Are you in the music industry? If you are then shame on you for your comment and choice of words.

      You have a point. However, I feel she was chosen due to her command of the English language. You and I know that some Nigerian artistes speak ‘upandan’ grammar…#English is bitter#

    a lot of negative comments about this girl every time there is gist about her, she better be happy because it means people actually pay attention to her. Lol. As far as i am concerned, for her to be picked as a speaker only means those who chose her know that she knows her onions and would not speak stupidly. If i am correct she’s studying music or something related to music for her masters, she is also an intern at a well known record label and working for/with people that do know about the music industry? Toh, me I believe that’s good enough to pick her as a speaker, she can very well differentiate between how things are done in naija and yankee because she is in both industries. Of course there had to be a rich dad comment, lol. Too many stupid people out there who don’t believe a rich kid can actually work hard to make a name for themselves outside their parents wealth.

    Kudos to Dj cuppa but dang BN y’all can do better.

    Demola and Ovie are the cofounders of . I mean their platform is major for naija music. For you not to even mention that is lazy journalism. Definitely need you guys to do better.
