Dj cuppy“I Really Want To Show The World What I Am Made Of”
Hypebae an American media platform,late 2017 interviewed celebrity diva DJ Cuppy and the interview was very fasinating . During the interview, the DJ Cuppy spoke on her journey as an afro beats ambassador and about what life is like for a woman in the music industry.
DJ Cuppy advised dropped a word of advice for women planning on entering the music industry she said that they should prepare to work hard and she stressed the importance of following one’s passion. In her words,
“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.”
Speaking on 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.”
