She revealed this on her Instagram page, noting that she clinched the Philanthropic Endeavour Leadership award during the Best of Africa Award show. The award show focuses on honouring and celebrating the achievements of people of African and Pan-African heritage.
Cuppy, in her post, excitedly posed with her trophy, while dressed in a traditional attire of the Yoruba tribe. In her caption, she expressed her gratitude to the organisation for her award, noting her pride about being an African.
The post read, “Honoured to receive the ‘Philanthropic Endeavour Leadership Award’ thank you @BOA_Awards. Being African is truly my greatest superpower!”
While receiving her award she said, “This award means so much to me because I am being honoured by my own people. I DJ around the world and do a lot of philanthropy but there is something that happens when we get together as Africans. I really believe that when we unite we create more than anyone can handle and that’s what I strive for at Cuppy Foundation.”
Cuppy is well known for her charity and generosity; especially when it comes to the betterment of Africans at large.
