Singer and disc jockey, Florence Otedola, popularly known as DJ Cuppy, ordinarily seems to have it all. Not a few Nigerians would sacrifice limbs to enjoy the privileges she has as a daughter of billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola.
However, just like many others on the Internet, Cuppy has been at the butt of jokes on social media by trolls who never forgo any opportunity to bully her online. Sunday Scoop takes a look at some of the times she has been bullied
In an Instagram Live chat with reality star and fellow rich kid, Terseer Waya, aka Kiddwaya, Cuppy spoke about how people, especially men, view her low cut. She said, “A lot of guys are not attracted to someone with short hair. And it’s really annoying because I am the same person. It made me insecure and I asked myself, ‘Am I ugly?’
“I feel that as Nigerians and young black people, we need to stop being so on the surface. We are putting ourselves under too much pressure. Even with make-up, lashes, we cannot kill ourselves. Even weight is a thing.”
On several occasions, many critics have lampooned her fashion sense. A Twitter user, Uncle Prince, once commented on her post, writing, “This Cuppy girl does not know how to dress at all.” Another commenter, Kawun Kowan, added, “Bro, she is always looking like a teletubby (cartoon character).”
Cuppy once posted a picture of herself in a beautiful white dress on Instagram but some of her followers felt her body did not do justice to the outfit. One of her followers, Sleaky Freak, wrote, “The face and the rest of the body colour don’t match. Legs like an athlete, bloated tummy like a pregnant woman, excess fat on the upper body.”
In response, Cuppy simply posted emojis which depicted love and kisses.
A social media personality, Abisoye Michael, aka Oyemykke, also ‘advised’ Cuppy to quit singing. According to him, she could do more than singing by producing people’s songs and supporting up-and-coming artistes.
Comedian, Justice Nuagbe, aka Ushbebe, also took a swipe at the Green Light singer, when during his show, he described her as a ‘wack DJ’.
