Celebrity entertainer DJ Cuppy Otedola has taken to social media to give fans an explanation about why she has remained absent from EndSARS protest even after her arrival from Dubai to Lagos, Nigeria.
The entertainer in a post shared on her verified Twitter page disclosed that she has been mandated to self-isolate for seven days or face prosecution in accordance with the COVID-19 laws.
She wrote on Twitter:
"After rushing to fly back home; wondering why you haven’t seen me out protesting? ...Since arriving in Lagos “THEY” have warned that I MUST self-isolate for 7 days due to Nigerian #COVID19 laws or face prosecution!"
Explaining her situation further, Cuppy stated that the development has left her frustrated as she has been forced to stay at home. She, however, gave assurances that her heart is with those who are agitating.

As expected, the tweet generated mixed reactions from her followers.

Responding to a fan who submitted that she was lying and compared her to Davido, the billionaire daughter made it clear that people’s circumstances are different.
According to Cuppy, she flew into Lagos via a commercial flight while Davido has been using his private jet.

Cuppy also returned to reassure her fans that she intends to join the protest once she completes her quarantine.
"Best believe I will be out on the streets with you once I finish my “REQUIRED” quarantine and produce a negative covid test... Until then I am 100% in support of all the young people fighting justly to #SarsMustEnd... Please stay safe out there!"
