Cuppy Laments, Says She is Underpaid and Underrated as Compared to Male DJs
DJ Cuppy (Florence Otedola), daughter of billionaire Femi Otedola, has lamented saying compared to male DJs, she is underpaid and undervalued.
To deal with the discrimination, DJ Cuppy explained that she focused on her work and stayed positive. “Going into a male-dominated space, you have to have zeal and be strong. Women have to work twice as hard to get half as much done. Compared to my male counterparts, I’m still underpaid, undervalued and according to them, I have to have a particular aesthetic which I fight to this day, ” she wrote on Snapchat on Tuesday as the world marked the International Women’s Day.
“My advice is to be at peace with yourself because men in that industry will tell you that you are not good enough. You have
to come at peace with yourself and know that you are enough,” said the disc jockey.
“You will have a difficult time if you work just for validation. Do what you love. Understand
your environment and build on your strengths. ”
