“I will never come out as a feminist ” says DJ Cuppy

Nigerian female disc jockey, Florence Otedola, popularly known as DJ Cuppy in a recent interview with city FM revealed her take on feminism.



In the interview, daughter of business tycoon, Femi Otedola stated that she considered herself a feminist until she realized she didn’t really understand it.



According to her, “I used to consider myself a feminist, until I realized that I did not really understand it. I don’t like people who are hypocrites. People are out there speaking about women rights, but behind closed doors are doing crazy things.


“I will never come out as a feminist because I am in a male-dominated industry, so I have a certain scenario. I deal with men on a daily basis and I realize that they will always think that they are better than women. I don’t think it is going to solve it.


“But you must also limit the amount of attention you give them because let’s be honest, the more energy you put into one thing, the less time you can into another.


“If I literally sat down all day and spoke about how hard it is being a woman, I won’t have time to sit here talking with you, because I will be somewhere in Alade market talking about how women need better rights.” She said.
