I felt insecure about how people viewed my haircut – DJ Cuppy
DJ Cuppy has lamented that she felt insecure about how people viewed her haircut, adding that a lot of young black people were too superficial.
The singer said this when she was hosted by her long-time friend and online celebrity, Kiddwaya at an unplanned Instagram live session in the UK, on Thursday.
DJ Cuppy whose real name is Florence Otedola, is currently studying at Oxford University and at the beginning of 2022, she launched a new look as she cut her hair and dyed it pink, which is her signature colour.
She said felt a bit insecure about how people looked at her since she cut her hair. She lamented that the cruise on focusing on mundane things has gone a notch among young black people.
Cuppy said, “A lot of guys are not attracted to someone with short hair. And it’s really annoying because I’m the same person. To me, it made me insecure and I asked myself, ‘am I ugly?’
“I feel like as Nigerians and young black people, we need to stop being so on the surface. We are putting ourselves under too much pressure. Even with make-up, lashes, we cannot kill ourselves. Even weight is a thing.”
Cuppy, however, noted that she would prefer to be real. She also believes that sharing her real self in her relationship will keep it going in the good days and the bad days.
