Nigerian Disc Jockey and Artist, DJ Cuppy has reacted after being compared to Tems.
A fan took to Twitter to write that the international fame Tems is currently enjoying is what DJ Cuppy should be enjoying.
“Tems did what Cuppy was supposed to do 3 years ago”
The Disc Jockey did not seem to agree with his opinion as she was quick to remind him that her voice has been a hindrance for her.
“Haba, NO WAY – especially not with the kind of singing voice I was born with Rolling on the floor laughingFace with tears of joy #FreeCuppy #RebelGang”
This fan’s comment isn’t surprising as Tems is currently the hottest Nigerian Female artist in the International music scene.
The “Try Me” singer made a major international breakthrough with her feature on Wizkid’s “Essence” which earned her first Billboard Hot 100 spot.
She also became trending news after being unveiled as one of the artists to be featured on Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy.”

Weeks later, she released her sophomore EP, “If Orange was a Place” and is currently on a tour in the USA where she has been having sold-out shows.
While in the US, she also met Rihanna during an event and alongside Wizkid was presented a plaque for “Essence” earning platinum certification.
Cuppy, on the other hand, isn’t doing bad for herself. While she is yet to release new music this year, she has been on a British reality show called “Highlife” and has resumed classes at the University of Oxford where she is undertaking her second Master’s Degree.
