- Nigeria's disc jockey and singer DJ Cuppy has dished out some salients truths about celebrities lives
- Cuppy advised that people shouldn't live their lives for other people's acceptance
- Talking about her critics, she said some will still discredit her even if she bags a Grammy award
Feel Good crooner and disc jockey Florence Otedola popularly referred to as DJ Cuppy has revealed that some celebrities are not all that they portray on social media.
The Cuppy Foundation founder stated this recently in a series of videos she made on her Instagram page.
The 28-year-old slammed those who have the fondness of bashing celebrities and influencers as they forgot that these persons are humans too.
She stated that if she were to win a Grammy award, there were those who would still say she didn't deserve it.
Cuppy maintained that the only reason why she still engages in what she does is because of her love for it and owes no one an apology.
"A lot of celebrities tell lies about how glamorous and smooth things always seem to be (for them). A lot of things happened in my personal life and career recently, and the truth is that the same people who praise me would be the same ones that would attempt to put one down.
"I could literally win a Grammy Award and some people would still think I am not good enough. That is why I do things that make me feel good and happy.
“I am also making impact and helping people. The reason I do what I do is because I genuinely love it, with or without the limelight. If I want to sing about ice cream, release an album, grow fat or thin, or get married, I would do just that because it is up to me. Whatever I want to do, I do it unapologetically.

"Life is not about the best; it is about how one feels. A lot of people are very miserable behind closed doors. When I check (social media pages) of some people that make bad comments, (I realise that) they are going through some issues.
"People put their problems on other people and I think celebrities and influencers are easy targets. They forget they (celebs) are humans as well. So, don’t live your life for other people’s acceptance. They may not even accept you at the end of the day."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that had lamented that she is tired of people telling her what to do.
She pointed to an instance when someone told her she was too wealthy to wear the type of wigs that she did. In response, Cuppy said it was her life and she could do as she pleased.
“I’m tired of people telling me what I should do, telling me' what I shouldn’t do…Someone tweeted, Cuppy you’re too rich to be wearing the wigs you wear'.
“I’m like you know what, I’m sorry, I’m a human being and I get to do whatever I want, you know why? cos It’s my life.“
