Florence Otedola, a disc jockey better known as DJ Cuppy, has rung the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).


The NYSE is by far the world’s largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies at US$30.1 trillion as of February 2018.

On Tuesday, the ‘Gelato’ crooner was granted the honour to ring the NYSE opening bell in company of Chris Taylor, vice-president, NYSE listings.

Cuppy was also applauded by the ladies and gentlemen on the exchange floor immediately she hit the bell.



The 26-year-old Afrobeats artiste and daughter of Femi Otedola, Nigerian business magnate, was in the United States alongside her father.

Ever since she had her big break in the country’s music industry, Cuppy has taken impressive career strides and earned herself a deluge of ever-loyal fans.

Her recent single ‘Gellato’, which featured Zlatan Ibile, also made great numbers on streaming platforms. The song scaled up to number 3 on the Apple Music chart within a day of release.

The song also caused a frenzy among Nigerians on social media; topped playlist in clubs, radio stations, and occasions across the country, and recently got Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest man, vibing to ‘Gelato’.


Aside from music production and entertainment awards, DJ Cuppy has bagged quite a number of endorsement deals with renowned brands including Pepsi, Tiger Beer, and Samsung.
