Dj Cuppy speaks on her journey in the entertainment world

DJ Cuppy had an interview with Hypebae around the tail end of 2017. The interview was a very interesting one, as it reveals her journey into the entertainment world in the Afro beats region. and the interview produced lots of interesting insights.

According to her, any female planing on getting into the entertainment world should be ready to work hard and she also spoke about one's passion as a driving force

“Talent and skill have no gender. Anyone that’s trying to go into anything should have genuine passion for it. My advice to any woman wishing to enter this industry is you need to get ready to work hard or go home. All great things take hard work and when you are a woman, you have to work twice as hard to achieve half as much. Hard work really means knowing your craft. In my case, that meant taking off my acrylic nails and learning to scratch. I even took a course at Scratch Academy in New York and made friends with fellow aspiring DJs. Network is everything and when it comes to DJing, it’s no different. Conjure up that courage and actually speak to or message the DJs you loves. It’s great to shadow someone or even go to gigs. Yes, many late nights, but the hustle will be so worth it when it’s your turn.”

Concerning her next project, she said, “I would say an EP. I would love to come out with my own strong debut album, amazing records and great collaborations. I really want to show the world what I am made of. I am still on an experimental path but regardless, I want Cuppy to be known as someone that came, shook things up and changed the rules for African women and beyond.”
