Popular disc jockey, Florence Otedola, better known as DJ Cuppy, has finally broken silence on her feelings about her failed engagement to British boxer, Ryan Taylor.
She said that everyone has “ups and downs” in life, and despite coming from a wealthy family, her life hasn’t always been predictable.
DJ Cuppy made the statement at the Wimbiz London Conference, where she talked candidly about her jewellery business, her split with her fiancé, and her struggles to succeed academically at Oxford University.
She said that even the largest and most successful women fail; therefore, she was good with the “uncertainty” of life since there is strength in failure and uncertainty.
Cuppy recounted how a jewellery line she established at age 28 failed, how she almost failed at Oxford University, and how her relationship failed.
In her words;
“Failure is inevitable. We will all have failures in our personal lives and in our professional lives. Now I can stand here and tell you how unpredictable my life has been despite being from a privileged background. Whether it’s my failed jewellery line which I did at 28 years old or going to the University of Oxford at 29 and almost failing class.
Last year, I got engaged and I’m no longer engaged but such is life and I know my story is still happening and there’s more to come and I’m okay with the uncertainty.”
