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!"
