DJ Cuppy Explains Why She wasn’t too Pleased with the Viral “Lagos to London: Britain’s New Super-Rich” Documentary | Watch




A couple of weeks ago Minnow Films documented the lifestyle of new successful Nigerian elites like Toke Makinwa, Ozee and Ocee Mbadiwe and More in a documentary called “Lagos to London: Britain’s New Super Rich” and DJ Cuppy was one of the people profiled alongside her blogger sister, Temi Otedola.

The documentary caused quite a lot of discussion on social media and the video clips were trending for days as people dissected the content of the documentary which focused more on the lavish lifestyle of the individuals profiled.

In this quick interview with Factory78, DJ Cuppy explains that she wasn’t too happy with the documentary but that she doesn’t regret doing it. According to her, she’d have liked the documentary to focus more on her music because she is trying to build a brand. She however talks about being happy that the documentary passed a message across – Africans are educated and well aware.

She states that if an opportunity such as that comes again, she might not be as open to doing the documentary.

In the interview she also talks about how her internship with Roc Nation went, her future plans and how it feels to be African with the world watching our music industry closely.

Watch her interview below.

      Nothing wrong with her foundation. Blot powder would have fixed that shine, made worse by the camera lights.

    it starts from 2:15 and summary
    “she had mixed feelings because even though she didn’t agree with the portrayals, it shows that africans are well educated, well aware and making moves outside the continent and let people know they are here to stay”

      Why will she fake tan? More like she went on holiday and came back with a tan. It will wear off.

      I think this was why she wasn’t really ok with that documentary. I’m sure the interviews covered broad topics but the producers only chose the parts that would fit their script. Atoke’s article on those foreigners wanting to tell our stories the way they want is so evident in that ‘London to Lagos’ documentary and Cuppy’s reaction.
