I don’t use my dad’s influence to get things done like Davido – DJ Cuppy opens up

DJ Cuppy, daughter of billionaire oil magnate, Femi Otedola has revealed that she doesn’t take advantage of her father’s influence to get things done like Davido does.

It’s almost a general believe that when one’s parents are rich, their kids find everything easy and on a platter of gold but DJ Cuppy thinks otherwise.

The DJ whose father is an oil mogul has revealed that she is not spoon-fed and does not live on her father’ wealth like Nigerian musician, Davido whose fame came from his father’s wealth and was branded ‘Omo Baba Olowo.’

DJ Cuppy, during a chat with E-Daily stated that her dad’s name rarely opens all doors for her notwithstanding his wealth.

Her words:

“People have to understand that just because I was born into my family does not mean that it opens all doors, that is everyone’s outside perspective. My inside perspective is just being someone’s child; how can being someone’s child be used against you?

I can walk into a room and before I even open my mouth, everyone has decided, and it’s like you are not giving a young woman a chance to even prove herself.”

She added that unlike Davido, she is not the type who would exploit her father’s influence to get things done.

“The only difference between Davido and I is that he decided to use the influence as an advantage from an early stage.

David was like I am ‘omo baba olowo’ (OBO), take it or leave it! I’m not that kind of person, he was smart though, because before you can even do anything, he has already told you he is the son of a millionaire.

He did his brand thing well and he’s about that lush life, he lives large and he’s not apologising for who he is,” she said

DJ Cuppy’s interview comes few days after she had a session of teaching French president, Emmanuel Macron and Senegalese president, Macky Sall how to DJ. She wwas the official DJ at the Global Citizen event held in Dakar.
