Exciting young DJ and producer Cuppy is flying high right now, and with so much hype surrounding her name she has decided that it is the perfect time to unveil her debut album 'Original Copy'. Many years in the making, Original Copy features an array of high-profile collaborations and sees Cuppy tap into a sound she describes as “neo-Afrobeats”, with the 12-track releasing tackling themes ranging from independence to love lost and African pride.
The LP features singles ‘Jollof On The Jet’, the global sensation featuring Rema and RayVanny that has charted in over 15 countries, and the recently released ‘Karma’ featuring award winning dancehall star Stonebwoy. Further star studded tracks include Grammy winner Wyclef Jean making an appearance on the feelgood ‘Wale’, Bob Marley’s son Julian linking up with Nigerian favourite Sir Shina Peters on the cross continental anthem ‘54’ and South London breakout star Ms Banks trading bars with Nigerian rapper Ycee on ‘P.O.Y.’.
DJ, producer, philanthropist and Apple Music Radio host, Cuppy has quickly risen through the ranks to become a supreme lead role as a global pan-African tastemaker. With her loveable personality and undeniable hard work ethic she’s embarked on a number of projects, including her Cuppy Takes Africa Tour which was filmed and a documentary series of the same name aired on Fox Life.
Original Copy brings together some of Africa’s most star-studded artists for a celebration of the continent’s ever-growing influence on the global music scene.
