DJ Cuppy Brings Along A Galaxy Of Stars On “Original Copy”

Nigerian celebrity disc jockey and host DJ Cuppy has released her debut album “Original Copy” today, August 21, after weeks of anticipation. This album contains just 12 tracks but features some of the best and brightest stars across the continent and the world.

The project features an all-star cast of Efya, Wyclef, Rema, Rayvanny, Nonso Amadi, Ycee, Julian Marley, Darkoo, Ms Banks, Seyi Shay, Teni, Sir Shina Peters and Fireboy DML who just released his sophomore album “Apollo” about a day ago.

This album is led by the single ‘Jollof on the Jet” which was released a couple of weeks ago. The Killertunes-produced jam is a syrupy mellow Afrobeats tune where Rema and Rayvanny lay their gleaming vocals and Cuppy does her call-and-response-esque hook all about living the best life.

No doubt, DJ Cuppy can be said to be a case study in the lessons of perseverance. Her earliest releases were often received with mockery and fingers pointing at her limited artistic talents. But an undeterred Cuppy has been gracious but persistent, played to her strength and is now bouncing back with a bang.

A few months, she was also announced as the host of Africa’s first Apple Music Radio Show, Africa Now Radio with Cuppy where she spotlights new releases and has discussions with the creators about their art.

Listen to the new album above.
