Cuppy takes another step into the spotlight as she reveals her singing chops in the new single and music video for "Green Light," featuring none-other-than Tekno.


The track, which was also produced by Tekno, is an infectious afrobeats slow burner which you'll definitely be hearing at clubs and parties across Lagos and London.
