Watch Cuppy & Tekno's New Video For 'Green Light'

Cuppy reveals her singing chops in the new single "Green Light," featuring Tekno.

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.

"Green Light" follows "Light," Cuppy's buzzing collaboration with Mr Eazi off his Accra to Lagos mixtape.

Earlier this year, Cuppy put together an exclusive playlist for OkayAfricaOkayAfrica in her style of 'Neo-afrobeats'—a genre she coined which takes afrobeats flavors and blends them with house and electronic influences.

Check out Cuppy and Tekno's "Green Light" video below.
