Here you have it BellaNaijarians, Cuppy‘s tea is finally served.
Nigerian disc jockey, musician and producer Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola, professionally known as Cuppy, has served us her much anticipated debut album “Original Copy,” and it’s simply amazing.
The tracklist, released at the beginning of August, revealed that the album includes Cuppy’s recent hit singles “Jollof on the Jet” featuring Rema & Rayvanny and “Karma” featuring Ghanaian dancehall artist Stonebwoy.
And even more: there’s the legendary Sir Shina Peters, Grammy-winning Wyclef Jean, Bob Marley’s son Julian, and some of the biggest names right now including Teni, Fireboy DML, Seyi Shay, Ycee and Nonso Amadi.
Cuppy had given BellaNaija a sneak peek into the album, and speaking on the journey to making it, she said:
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.
