Want to know what the celebrities do to have fun in Lagos? They head out on their boats on a cruise before heading off to party on the beach. This week, the British-Nigerian professional boxer was seen with Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola, who is also known as DJ Cuppy. The pair headed out for a spectacular cruise of the ocean and blue lagoons around Lagos, before attending a rocking beach party with friends. What better way to enjoy the incredible Nigerian scenery and celebrate a new romance?
The boxing legend
Anthony Johnson holds some prestigious titles – he was the world heavyweight champion, and also held the IBF, WBO and WBA (Super) titles between 2016 and 2019. He also held the Commonwealth title for two years. He was the first British boxer to win a gold medal at the Olympic Games. Johnson has recently become great friends with DJ Cuppy, and is spending an extended and well-deserved break in his home country of Nigeria to enjoy the sights and see friends. There may even be more than a little chemistry there…
Giving a personal gift
When Johnson first arrived in the motherland, DJ Cuppy gifted him with an incredible cake – you can watch the video presentation on his Instagram feed. The post was captioned with “Welcome Home Femi!” The pair were also spotted out in the car enjoying themselves, singing a traditional Yoruba song. Both of Johnson’s parents are Nigerian born, and his heritage can be directly traced back to the Yoruba people.
Financing the yacht
Johnson and DJ Cuppy have clearly been making the most of the vacation, celebrating on a yacht, cruising the city waters and enjoying promoting DJ Cuppy’s latest musical offering, Abena. Although DJ Cuppy and her younger sister are set to inherit a small fortune from their father Femi Otedola, the energy tycoon, Cuppy has made the move to stand out at her own career choice. It has given her the freedom to finance a yacht for cruises and adventures around Lagos. There are some good financing options available if you too want to sail your own private boat – you might even spot a celebrity or two!
What’s on the cards?
DJ Cuppy is often pictured with Anthony Johnson’s sister Janet, and the pair have clearly become great friends too. She has often been photographed ringside too, making a vocal display in supporting Johnson with his epic boxing career. We are certainly keeping a close eye on their Instagram and Twitter feeds to see where their natural chemistry leads. Maybe she’ll even write a song about him.
All eyes are on “Cuppyjosh” to see if this relationship moves to the next level. Hopefully they’ll be spotted again soon on a boat cruise in the Lagos ocean.
