[WATCH] DJ Cuppy Drops Hotly Anticipated Debut Album, ‘Original Copy’

Exciting young DJ and producer Cuppy has unveiled her debut album Original Copy, last week Friday, 21st August 2020.

Many years in the making, Original Copy features an array of high-profile collaborations and sees Cuppy tap into a sound she describes as “neo-Afrobeats”, with the 12-track releasing tackling themes ranging from independence to love lost and African pride. The LP features singles ‘Jollof On The Jet’, the global sensation featuring Rema and RayVanny that has charted in over 15 countries, and the recently-released ‘Karma’ featuring award-winning dancehall star Stonebwoy.

Further star-studded tracks include Grammy winner Wyclef Jean making an appearance on the feelgood ‘Wale’, Bob Marley’s son Julian linking up with Nigerian favourite Sir Shina Peters on the cross-continental anthem ‘54’. The project also features UK breakout stars Ms Banks and Darkoo.

Creating this body of work was a journey for Cuppy, who explains “I went back to my roots, where I am from; Epe (a small Town just outside of Lagos, Nigeria) and mixed with the locals, I visited my family’s farm and recorded lots of ambient and animal sounds. If you listen very carefully you can hear these in each track”.

Beaming about the arrival of her album, Cuppy goes on to say: “I am so proud that the album is now out. For me it’s not about numbers and statistics and charts. It’s about the fact that I was able to focus and actually achieve my dream of having an album. So honestly, I’m already happy regardless of what happens. Nonetheless, I encourage everyone to join this journey and I hope they enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed making this album.”

DJ, producer, philanthropist and Apple Music Radio host,Cuppy has quickly risen through the ranks to become a supreme lead role as a global pan-African tastemaker. With her loveable personality and undeniable hard work ethic she’s embarked on a number of projects, including her Cuppy Takes Africa Tour.

When asked which South African artist she would love to collaborated with, she excitedly said, Cassper Nyovest and Maphorisa amongst many.
