DJ Cuppy, whose real name is Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola has just being unveiled as the star of SCHICK magazine’s first-ever digital cover.

Describing the music producer as the unshakeable and unapologetic, Cuppy speaks to the publication in a zoom interview about everything business, success, her philanthropic work and veganism.

“I felt it was so important to be educated in what I knew and I’ve always viewed myself beyond just [being] an artist; I saw myself as an executive as well as, someone who can make business decisions,” the 27-year-old disc-jockey who just released her debut album “Original Copy” says.

She also discusses how she deals with criticism, saying, “My way of dealing with [the criticism] is not to hold on to people’s opinions and just move on. I’m quite a self-assured person, so no one will ever deter me from doing what I want to do.”

See a few excerpts from the interview below.

On Veganism: “Veganism is great. I actually made a Mushroom Egusi the other day and I’m very proud of it! I didn’t make it on my own but it tasted delicious.

Veganism, for me, is something that’s here to stay and I just noticed I’m feeling so much better, so much more positive and energetic, and it feels good that I’m actually doing something to help the welfare of animals.”

On growing up in Lagos: “I come from a very entrepreneurial, ambitious family and I had the most exciting childhood ever. My parents did not give me one second of free time – from swimming lessons to learning to play the piano, to Yoruba and cooking lessons.

They were very proactive and they were very supportive. I wanted to be an ice skater once, and they said: Great, let’s do that! When I wanted to become a tennis player, their response was: “Let’s do that!” My parents, despite being very busy, were very invested in us as children.”
