Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Teni, Others Win
For her recent fundraising project to educate young girls in the Northeast region of the country, Ifeoluwa Otedola, popularly known as DJ Cuppy, was rewarded with a plague of excellence in philanthropy at the Soundcity MVP Awards held over the weekend.
Cuppy, who is an ambassador of Save the Children, a global movement made up of national member organisations that raise funds for children advocacy, marked her last birthday with the launch of her Cuppy Foundation. The fundraising event had the cream of the society in attendance donating to the cause of the DJ.
Coming on stage to receive her award, Cuppy brought along Kupe, one of the beneficiaries of her largesse. She expressed surprise that she would be on stage receiving an award that is not music related.
The popular DJ, in a moment of pride, told the large crowd that filled the Eko Convention Centre, that she is an embodiment of greatness.
“I’m 27 years-old,” she said, encouraging the youths to be inspired by her Cuppy Foundation and seek ways to make lives of the less-privileged better.
Despite the mild booing from the crowd, Cuppy stood her ground and ensured that she passed the message across.
It was the first time that the music awards organised by media mogul, Tajuddeen Adepetu, recognised exceptional individuals, who have done well in their various fields.
Other recipients of the excellence awards include the British-Nigerian professional boxer, Anthony Joshua for his excellence in sports; media entrepreneurs and political activists, Adebola Williams and Chude Jideonwo for their excellence in community and socio-political development; CEO of iCreate Africa, Bright Jaja for social entrepreneurship and digital influence.
Now in its fourth edition, The Soundcity MVP Awards is gradually becoming the grandest stage where creatives in the music space are awarded for their creativity and contribution in the promotion of African music to the world.
