Dj Cuppy is one artiste that has received so much hate in the music industry just because she was born with a silver spoon. Despite releasing hit songs like “ Abena ,” “Green Light” and “ Gelato ”, many still believe that she paved her way to success with her already established background and not her personal efforts.

It accurately depicts the body of work that will showcase Cuppy’s immense talent as a music artist and her diverse knowledge of great sounds.
On the 21st of August, 2020, Cuppy dropped the highly anticipated 12 track album which features the likes of Efya, Wyclef Jean, Wale, Darkoo, Stonebwoy, Teni, Sir Shina Peters, Nonso Amadi, Julain Marley, Ms Banks, Ycee, and Seyi Shay .
