Popular Nigerian Disc Jockey and producer, Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola, known professionally as DJ Cuppy, has said that her biggest inspiration is Trinidadian-American rapper, Nicki Minaj.
The ‘Gelato’ crooner said that without Nicki Minaj, there would have been no DJ Cuppy as she’s been inspiring her for the past 12 years.
She stated this via her official Twitter page on Friday while sharing how the Hip Hop star influenced her love for the colour pink.
Cuppy, whose hair, apartment, cars, and other belongings are pink, said she fell in love with the colour after seeing Nicki Minaj’s video for the song, “Massive Attack”, in 2010.
The music producer who said she had never seen anything like that video, stressed that the Super Bass hit maker was still her biggest inspiration 12 years after it was released.
DJ Cuppy tweeted; “I’ve never actually explained how I fell in love with the colour pink: Well, it was When Nicki did her debut video for ‘Massive Attack’ I had never seen anything like it. 12 years later and Nicki is still my biggest inspo. There would be no Cuppy without @NickiMinaj.”
