DJ Cuppy the daughter of the popular Nigeria billionaire Femi Otedola has revealed that she doesn’t use to her advantage the influence of her father to get things done like Davido does.

The believe would be that she rose to where she is as a female Dj in the industry with the influence of her father in it.

The Dj turn performing artiste has not gotten the attention she has as a result of her dad but due to hard work and consistence. During her chat with E-Daily, DJ Cuppy stated that her dad’s name rarely opens all doors for her though she is the daughter of an oil magnate popularly know.

Here are her words:

“People have to understand that just because I was born into my family does not mean that it opens all doors, that is everyone’s outside perspective. My inside perspective is just being someone’s child; how can being someone’s child be used against you?

I can walk into a room and before I even open my mouth, everyone has decided, and it’s like you are not giving a young woman a chance to even prove herself.”

She added that unlike Davido, she is not the type who would exploit her father’s influence to get things done.

“The only difference between Davido and I is that he decided to use the influence as an advantage from an early stage.

So David was like I am ‘omo baba olowo’ (OBO), take it or leave it! I’m not that kind of person, he was smart though, because before you can even do anything, he has already told you he is the son of a millionaire.
