Finally, Nigerians get the chance to call out DJ Cuppy over the comments she made in her June interview with UK tabloid, Daily Mail. And it is all thanks to her selfie with Facebook boss, Mark Zuckerberg.
Recall that in her Daily Mail interview, the top disc jockey said whenever she is working in Nigeria, she travels “with a security team in a bullet proof car due to the risk of robbery and kidnapping.” Many of her fans considered the comment insensitive, especially because she gushed about the UK being her safe place.
When Zuckerberg visited Nigeria and walked the streets of Lagos without any security, it called for celebration as this was considered a redemptive evidence, with which we could attempt to restore the nation’s battered image.
And so, when DJ Cuppy posed for a photograph with the Facebook boss, Nigerians reminded her of her comments.
See the selfie and the reactions:
