Nigerian Disc Jockey and Entertainer, Florence Otedola, popularly known as DJ Cuppy, has claimed that she is underrated and undervalued in comparison to her male counterparts in the entertainment industry.

Cuppy disclosed this in a recent post on her Instagram stories, sharing an excerpt from an interview on International Women’s Day, on Tuesday, 8th March, 2022. She mentioned that women have to work twice as hard as their male counterparts to receive recognition. 

The Gelato lover also added that women need to be strong in order to survive in male dominated fields.

“Going into a male-dominated space, you have to have zeal and be strong. Women have to work twice as hard to get half as much done. Compared to my male counterparts, I ‘m still underpaid, undervalued and according to them, I have a particular aesthetic which I fight to this day”, she said.
