Florence Otedola, also known as DJ Cuppy, a Nigerian disc jockey who supports African graduates at Oxford University, has donated £100,000 to the university.
The “Cuppy African Oxford Fund” was started by Cuppy, who holds two master’s degrees from the esteemed institution, as a scholarship fund for Africans.
She announced the fund on her Instagram page, with the intention of aiding future African leaders by giving them the information, resources, and networks necessary to have the largest impact on Africa and beyond.
In the next ten years, she added that she hopes to use education to empower people in realizing their full potential.
The 30-year-old DJ wrote, “Proud to launch the Cuppy Africa Oxford Fund! I just graduated from Oxford_Uni and so this partnership means a lot to me…This £100,000 gift is in support of African Graduate students. It aims to support future leaders from the continent by enabling them to access the necessary skills, resources and networks to maximize their impact. Over the next 10 years, my hope is to support those in their education journeys and reach their full potential during their time at Oxford and beyond.”
DJ Cuppy said on March 16, 2023, that she has finished a second Master’s degree program at the University of Oxford in England, United Kingdom.
She previously earned a master’s degree in music business from New York University in 2015, as well as one in African studies from the University of Oxford. This was her third master’s degree overall.
