DJ Cuppy was under fire again for being rich
Since they came into limelight, DJ Cuppy and her sister Temi Otedola, daughters of Femi Otedola, Nigerian oil magnate have been attacked one time or the other by Nigerians on social media.
This time, all it took was an Independence Day message of Nigeria been the “greatest country” from DJ Cuppy. Commenting on her post yesterday, some Twitter users accused her of being insensitive to the struggles of the average Nigerian.
Before we get carried away, Cuppy is not the Nigerian government, it’s not her fault that Nigeria is a mess, leave her alone.
