Billionaire’s daughter, Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola professionally known as DJ Cuppy has disclosed that she had people who tells her that her music is terrible and that no one would ever listen to it.
While she appreciates some of these talks for constantly keeping her on her toes, she also said:
“I like to experiment. I like to switch things up sometimes- its music. I can’t afford to stay stagnant. I also have to make music about things that resonate with me and about how I feel. That’s how I made ‘Gelato, ‘charged up’ or ‘ Jollof rice on the Jet’.
” And sometimes, it’s better to experiment than to stay stagnant. Sometimes, I feel like people need to give artists a chance to express and experiment. The place of an audience is important, but the artist must be given a chance to evolve. Sometimes, I feel like the criticism is because of my personality and the open, honest way I was raised to live my life. But it is what it is, right [laughs]”.
Cuppy then narrated and joke about how people accuse her of being “razz”. Though she agrees and even jokes. about it, she feels like even though she was born into an affluent family. She should not be defined by it. So she would rather be herself and be called ‘razz’ than to be a snob. “It makes me happy”, she said.
