    One thing that stood out to me was the fact that Cuppy stated several times in this documentary that she doesn`t put much effort into her gigs in Nigeria, but goes all out for her shows outside of Nigeria. I am confused as to why someone would publicly admit that they put in little to no effort into their work, especially for people in their own country where they got their start? Moreover, she was a tourism Ambassador for Nigeria, yet goes on to talk about Nigerians as not worthy of her time or her effort. She made so many contradictory statements. She wants to change the image of Nigeria? Well, not by applying zero effort in the work she performs for her “fans”. Even if that’s how she really feels, why come on national tv to admit it? Really strange and arrogant.

      that’s not exactly what she said..she said she feels sometimes that Nigerians don’t care too much about the technicalities and are more interested in the vibe of the music. As such she doesn’t do the most; by scratching and spinning and showing too much skill….abeg this is not news, how many times have we heard Nigerian artists say they don’t put too much effort into lyricism because Nigerian’s just want to turn up??

      She could have sat there are said Nigerian’s farts candies and you’ll still have a problem with it.

      That’s because she is just a kid with a rich father. They never create anything by themselves . They dont know how to as they are handed everything on a plate . Without her father she would be living on 2 dollas a day like the 70% of Nigerians . Its very sad that this programme is being shown a an example of what is happening in Nigeria . Just shallow rich kids

    I just watched the documentary in full. Omo see Otedola’s house, my God. BTW, Temi couldn’t even open her door, the driver has to do that. As I watched Cuppy ask the maid whether her food was ready, I just imagined how their life is. Servers are at their beck & call,you absolutely have to do nothing. Money is good sha.
    That mbadiwe house looks like a museum. Original old money.
    It is well, we’ll get there.

    Lest I forget it was mentioned that Toke spent £5000 that weekend, doing a quick calculation of that amount is N2,000,000. Never knew the babe is that loaded,spending 2m in a weekend.

    • I watched the show

      June 9, 2016 at 1:42 pm

      Errmm, for those of us living in the said London we know every buyer is legally entitled to a buy and return within 28 days provided the item is in good and re-saleable condition and you shall be refunded your money in full! even if you spent an equivalent of N5,000.000.00 in one go!
      .
      Not trying to knock Toke’s hussle but I watched the show on Chanel 4 that night and not at all surprised that unlike the other three groups (Odetolas, Amosu and Mbadiwe twins) Toke was featured merely as a “waka pass” like briefly in 15mins detailing about her experience as a UK shopper and how she has a personal shopper in the UK (who was also shown), and another one in the US.

      That was all that was shown about Toke in the less than 15mins appearance she had to the show. Well kudos to her, at least hers was self made money not hand me downs anyway!

      June 10, 2016 at 2:36 am

      Abeg what was your point. Toke has those shoes and bag on her Instagram. She has money. No point of the long epistle. The sooner Nigerians accept that the babe is actually making it and actually has money, the better for you.

    Well what can I say? This has motivated me to get my media aspirations on the hustle so we can rewrite the Nigerian story . This was beyond shallow and I think we missed the thinly veiled mockery on us.

    I found this frankly nauseating. I have built a multi-million dollar business in Nigeria since I returned to Nigeria a few years ago and realistically, my children are being raised with a lot of advantage and privilege that I did not have.

    But if they grow up as vacuous and vapid and unambitious as the Otedola children, I will have failed miserably as a parent.

    What is the point of me killing myself to build a business so that I can give my children the best education and the best access in the world and they have ZERO sense of civic responsibility to the homeland that afforded them these advantages and all they want to do is consume the value I have created whilst having ZERO idea of how to generate any value of their own.

    And if after I have sent you to the best schools in the world, the only thing you have to offer back to society is to be a DJ and a blogger i.e. wasting my hard=earned money, I am sorry, I have failed as a parent.

    Your parents are billionaires, you have the means to do world-changing things, to show the world the best of what we are as Nigerians and Africans, and instead you make this documentary which shows you to be a bunch of consumptive, stupid black people who generate nothing but entertainment for oyinbo people?

    I am so disgusted.

    • HIAN

      June 10, 2016 at 2:38 am

      Being a DJ is not honourable? For someone who claims to be exposed and talks about civic education, you ignore the concept of “dignity in labour” so your children will definitely turn out worse because you’re already instilling a sense of hierarchy in them

      “And if after I have sent you to the best schools in the world, the only thing you have to offer back to society is to be a DJ and a blogger i.e. wasting my hard=earned money, I am sorry, I have failed as a parent.”

      Mr Temi, you do not have to be a doctor, lawyer or accountant to change the world.
      You can be a dj or blogger and change the world. If you have the liberty to follow your passion, then why not?. Example- Wizkid amongst others.

      First sensible comment I have seen on this post! This documentary did not paint Nigeria in a positive light. We have some billionaire kids and so what. The only saving grace was Amosu’s story. To the Otedola children and Mbadiwes grandchildren like someone else said you are young so that’s probably why your statements lacked depth or maturity but hopefully as you grow you will understand better how to make impact. The documentary just made us look silly..

    Even though I’ve been trying to watch this from 9am and the link below dripped didn’t work.. Because my Mac keeps saying bs! I just gave up and luckily my friend tagged me … I just stared and already I’m irritated
    A. Not hating or whatever why is toke having a personal shopper? Is she that rich? No be the same radio, blog, ish! This I go be on top mentality is not really cool to be quite honest
    B watching them otedola I feel like I’m watching kadashians…
    C. Those boys ehn ehn you spend someone’s salary in a day all in the name of luxury
    D i don’t get the hype! To be its all about show off ka ma puro! All these money and your country is underdeveloped, how would other countries invest…
    E my mentality about money just changed. Spending 2k pounds on a bag when I can save a life tho!! C’mon, I get its your money spend it the way you like… But I’m just irritated, even American shows don’t promote vanity like this

    • Lola

      June 9, 2016 at 10:16 pm

      That is where you’ve got it wrong. If you live in America, you will know that there is a show called “Secret lives of the super rich” in fact there are lots of shows that show how wealthy celebrities are. This documentary is nothing compared to what wealthy Americans spend their money on.

    • Derin87

      June 10, 2016 at 8:54 am

      Maybe you should watch the show carefully. You definitely missed some facts. For example, ‘those boys’ don’t spend someone’s salary in a day, they mentioned that people come to their parties and spend people’s monthly salaries in a day.

    Excruciating and embarrassed for them…shaming your own land where the money came from in order to look good in the eyes of Londoners…you never see the equally vain Russians and Arabs dissing their homeland…

    I watched the entire video and I am sort of confused as to the message and purpose of this documentary. Nigerians are very wealthy! OK. In the minds of the British, that means we really don’t need the foreign aid we receive. Do we think these people are stupid? They know most of this is stolen wealth and they still don’t respect us. I mean, the contradictions in the storylines are quite ridiculous. The Mbadiwe boys want to be outstanding lawyers but spend their time hosting Champagne-popping parties and driving around Lagos dressed like thugs from Brooklyn. As for Cuppy and her sister, I truly had an open mind and wanted to like them. So very contrived. The meeting with the stylist had to be in the yacht just so we can see how rich and fabulous you are . Drinking champagne in a hot Lagos afternoon surrounded by that dirty lagoon water. And as for all the vapid comments like” Kanye and Kim already did that” , I shake my head. My darling Toke, LOL. Only a trained eye will notice that she ain’t balling like that. A few luxury items now and then mixed in with regular clothes doesn’t make you super-rich. Honestly, I would have felt better if they profiled Linda Ikeji. . Very fake people. Very fake documentary. Only redeemed by Amosu whose humility and inspiring rags-to-riches story made it worth my time.

    If you’re reading this Cuppy or Temi, I want you to know the following:

    We don’t hate you. We actually support you and want to see you shine. Thats the root of everyones frustration.

    As we all know, Nigeria has many problems (insecurity being one of them as you mentioned). At the root of most of these problems, they’re economic i.e financial. There is only a small handful of people well-positioned to fix them, a finite amount of people with the financial and political means to effect change. You’re two of them.

    But instead of trying to fix them (Temi you sorta get a pass because you’re still in school) you complain, badmouth the country, and run to London to shop and bask in the orderly, safe, luxurious world that your British counterparts worked hard to build for their own society.

    The truth is: you don’t have the luxury of just ‘doing what you want’ or ‘what your passionate about’. You come from a developing country with many of the worlds poor. You have a moral obligation to try and improve the situation. “With great power (or wealth, intelligence etc.) comes great responsibility”!

    The good news is that you’re young, you can still change. You can still learn to think big and figure out how you can have the big, positive impact on the Nigerian society- that no one else but you can. And moreover, the general public has the memory of a goldfish – watch how your favorability soars and you become the Nigerian golden children, the Omoluabi, you should be.

    Best of luck girls, <3

    The Mbadiwe boys-Why would anyone accumulate so many expensive cars, all collecting dust and most with deflated tires and cramped all over the yard of the “mansion” that itself looks run down and unkept. They should have at least sold one of their cars so they can afford to put a fresh coat of paint on the entire property before showing the world how much wealth they have. A lot of Nigerians claim to be wealthy but they can’t even maintain or upkeep where they live. By force show off-shame on them!

    Ah!I just started watching and something in my mind. This documentary was done to prove to Britons that Nigeria is a wealthy country and they don’t need to support any charitable course to help the indigent in Nigeria because Nigerians are basking in wealth.
    I used to read Daily mail some years back and many of the comments continually trashed the British governement for sending financial aid to ‘Africa’ including Nigeria. Their argument was that these people are wealthy, stop wasting our money on them, charity begins at home, help the Britons and leave wealthy Nigeria alone.

    Toke, DJ Cuppy, Temi, and co., thank you for keeping the people in Makoko in abject poverty, thank you for keeping that school in Ikorodu that needs financial support from getting any help from some nice Britons who send their money to Nigeria since Nigerians won’t help. Also, thank you for making them think everybody in Nigeria can afford the luxury you afford. Thank you for making them think we have diamond plated shoes and posh houses.

    I have never supported the one sided story of Western media that everybody in Africa is suffering. I always believed there should be a balance, show the good as well as the bad BUT in your case, this is an extreme exposure of a good that is not the reality of even the middle calss Nigerian.

    Once again, thank you for denying some people much needed help, schools that would have been built, aid that would have supported because you decided to flaunt a luxurious life that only YOU have. You may ask, how does this affect anything, please go to Daily mail and read comments, you’ll be pissed.

      Nigeria is more than capable of sustaining itself, we do not need charity. Blame your thieving, corrupt leaders for the situation in Makoko. Not DJ Cuppy.

  27. Chiomah

    June 11, 2016 at 11:14 pm

    What made the documentary irk me is the fact that Nigeria has a lot of People living in penury . Even our middle class is almost gone and the economy is bad so such shows of extreme wealth are quite insensitive. It’s great that you were born into wealth enjoy and spend your money quietly with class.

    Since we are all so passionate about helping Nigeria’s poor everyone here must be doing their bit right? Probably not because the second Nigerian pastime is shirking responsibility. All of us are just such hypocrites. WhileDJ Cuppy. Was visiting motherless babies homes in East,south and west Africa giving out provisions, learning materials and money what were you doing? If the answer was nothing then it is you that should be ashamed. Amosu. Also mentors young wanna be entrepreneurs and as much as he has a flashy life also gets the train like everyone else. Who you EPP?
