AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #70: DJ CUPPY

Lagos-born DJ Cuppy's new mixtape showcases her ‘Neo-Afrobeats’ sound, a blend of electro-house and afrobeats.

Lagos-born DJ Cuppy cooked up her 'Neo-Afrobeats' sound, a blend of electro-house and afrobeats, spinning at nightclubs and fashion parties in London while she was attending college. That global dance sound propels her popular mixtape series House Of Cuppy, which also echo influences from her new home of New York.


The Nigerian DJ, producer and songwriter takes the reins on our new Africa In Your Earbuds, delivering a mixtape that pairs classic club anthems from around the world with the best from Nigerian pop, including tracks by Wizkid, Davido, Olamide, Yemi Alade, Patoranking, Timaya, Dr SID and more.

“This mix is an amazing expression of my experiences," DJ Cuppy tells Okayafrica. “The music is a fusion of Afrobeats and Western House. Living in London and Lagos, and now New York, I soak in so many cultures so this mix allows me to display an array of varieties!"

South Sudanese Top Model Aweng Ade Chuol & Her Wife Embrace On Cover of Elle UK

If the love doesn't inspire you to push boundaries and move fearlessly, we don't want it!

South Sudanese Top Model Aweng Ade Chuol and her wife Alexus Ade-Chuol braved the seemingly endless sea of criticism against African LGBTQ+ communities by posing on Elle UK's January 2021 issue together.

The newlyweds are the picture of love and happiness as they pose, kissing, for the magazine's new year release.

In an interview with Yahoo Life! , Elle UK's Editor-In-Chief Farrah Storr said of the groundbreaking cover, "Glossy magazines have traditionally put heterosexual couples on covers, but rarely have I seen same-sex couples embraced and celebrated in the same way. At Elle, we wanted simply to show a young couple in love at the end of a very tough year, and Aweng and Lexy seemed like the most natural fit in the world."
