Florence Otedola, a disc jockey (DJ) better known as Cuppy, says ‘Original Copy’, her recently released debut album, took her back to her roots.
In a statement to TheCable Lifestyle on Monday, Cuppy said she visited her family’s farm in Epe, Lagos, where she recorded series of ambient and animal sound samples used in the album.
“I went back to my roots, where I am from; Epe and mixed with the locals for inspiration, I visited my family’s farm and recorded lots of ambient and animal sound samples. If you listen very carefully you can hear these in each track,” she said.
The 27-year-old entertainer expressed her excitement at finally releasing the album, describing it as a dream come true.
Florence, daughter of Femi Otedola, billionaire businessman, also said she remains unperturbed by the project’s success in the long run.
“I am so proud that the album is now out. For me it’s not about numbers and statistics and charts. It’s about the fact that I was able to focus and actually achieve my dream of having an album,” she added.
“So honestly, I’m already happy regardless of what happens. Nonetheless, I encourage everyone to join this journey and I hope they enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed making this album.”
