‘Gelato’ crooner, DJ Cuppy who is the daughter of billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, said she once wished her father was not the renowned business mogul he is, due to the fact that she was rejected because of him when she first began her career as a DJ in Nigeria.
“Yes I once wished I wasn’t the daughter of my father, but that was back in the days, I’m now very comfortable in my own skin. When I first entered the industry, I felt like a lot of artistes and industry people wouldn’t accept me because I’m Femi Otedola’s daughter. I felt they wouldn’t feel comfortable with me, thinking I have an unfair advantage to enter their space and dominate it all.”
She said she felt she won’t be accepted into the music industry as people will not be comfortable with her, thinking she has an advantage.
She said, “But now, I feel like I’ve paid my dues over the last few years and I’ve built some great relationships in the industry and people are starting to really respect me because I’ve built a good reputation for myself. So now I’m happy to say who my dad is. I can’t really change who my dad is and I’m embracing it and seeing it as a blessing now.”
