Fans of Florence Otedola, Nigerian disc jockey better known as DJ Cuppy, have come to her defence on social media after a Twitter user’s response to comments she made concerning giveaways on social media.


The talented DJ took to her Twitter page on Monday to explain why she doesn’t do giveaways. She said it made her feel she was paying people to become fans.

To all my cupcakes that complain I don’t do Money Giveaways, I hear you… BUT I’ve always felt like that was essentially paying people to be your fans? #TeamCuppy,” Florence wrote.

Her tweet, however, prompted a response from Mazi, a Twitter user with the handle @mathewamad, who quipped that her giveaways will be used as compensation for the “trauma and emotional turmoil endured listening to her music”.


“No ma, it is compensation for the trauma and emotional turmoil we go through enduring your music. We still love you sha. Music or no music. You are adorable,” he wrote.

Mazi’s response did not go down well with fans of the talented DJ and they have since taken to the microblogging platform to express their annoyance, describing the response a “form of cyberbullying”.

“Stop hating on rich people, they are not the reason why you are broke. #FreeCuppy,” DreamChaser said.


These Twitter bullies are just so funny so because Cuppy Haven’t done any giveaway, y’all are mad at her…does she hustle for any of us, No. So what’s the big deal and what’s giving y’all the guts to even throw insults on her… Don’t go and hustle for yourself #FreeCuppy,” a Twitter user said.

“The way Nigerians swallow bull***t and lick a** because of the small giveaway on the streets is really sad and disheartening. I’m super against cyberbullying, no matter the person involved,” another user said.
