XOkayAfrica: Cuppy Drops By to Show Love

Nigeria's buzzing DJ Cuppy stopped by OkayAfrica HQ in NYC. See the exclusive photos.

We get a lot of drop-ins at the OkayAfrica offices.


Any given day, you're liable to see an afrobeats star, buzzing actor, fashion it-girl, or underground artist stopping by our Brooklyn headquarters to say what's up and scope out our multipurpose gallery, OkaySpace.

In our new series XOkayAfrica, we'll be capturing those visits through exclusive photos.

NEW YORK CITY—Cuppy is on a mission.

The buzzing Nigerian DJ and producer has been everywhere lately, holding down parties on both sides of the Atlantic while dropping new collaborations with the likes of Mr Eazi and Young Paris.

Cuppy stopped by our OkayAfrica HQ to perform a DJ set that showcased her catchy 'neo-afrobeats' sound, which is built on a blend of afrobeats and electro-house influences.

Needless to say, she killed it.

And, to make things better, we had two of our favorite dancers on hand to add some moves to her set.

To hear more of Cuppy's unique 'neo-afrobeats' style revisit her excellent House of Cuppy mixtapes.

If you're in London, she'll be throwing a series of summer rooftop parties, called Cactus On The Roof, throughout June.

Check out our exclusive pictures of Cuppy at the OkayAfrica offices, taken by Ginny Suss, below.
