Cuppy is a woman of many talents, and her excellence extends far beyond the world of music. As a global citizen and a Save the Children ambassador, she has dedicated herself to humanitarian efforts in Nigeria and beyond. In 2018, she founded the Cuppy Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to improve the lives of displaced children across Nigeria. Through the foundation, Cuppy has provided support to thousands of children, helping to ensure that they have access to education, healthcare, and other basic needs.
Cuppy’s commitment to social change has not gone unnoticed. In 2019, she was inducted into Forbes Magazine’s prestigious 30 under 30 class, recognizing her as one of the most influential young people in the world. She has also become an ambassador for the Lagos SDGs Youth Alliance, an organization dedicated to promoting sustainable development in Nigeria. Due to her impeccable diligence, DJ Cuppy has been appointed as a messenger of peace, the highest honor bestowed by the Secretary-General of the United Nations on a global citizen.
Cuppy’s recent speech as a peace advocate at the United Nations Headquarters is a testament to her exceptional leadership and dedication to change. In her speech, Cuppy emphasized the importance of education and gender equality as the foundation for promoting peace. She shared a heart-wrenching story of a little girl who wished she could be a boy so that she could learn, highlighting the prevalence of gender discrimination against young girls across the world. Cuppy’s 45-minute’ video, which was uploaded yesterday on the UN Web TV, is a powerful and insightful speech that has been well-received by viewers from around the world.
Cuppy is a vision in white on that podium and her peaceful nature precedes her. Her passion and dedication are remarkable and she is a beautiful inspiration to many. A DJ and a peace advocate, a perfect Combo if you ask me.
