‘This paper alone almost made me drop out of Oxford’ – DJ Cuppy laments over school stress



Florence Otedola, alias DJ Cuppy, a Nigerian Disk Jockey, has expressed joy in finishing her thesis at Oxford University, but noted that she has no time to celebrate as she’s drained on account of the stress she passed through.

DJ Cuppy, daughter of Femi Otedola, a Nigerian billionaire investor, revealed that she almost dropped out of her master’s programme at the university.

“Tears of joy, the wait is finally over!!! My thesis is finally 100% done!!! Not sure why weeping is my reaction right now,” she wrote via her Instagram page on Friday.

“I’m so drained that it actually feels so difficult to celebrate. Over the last few weeks, I’ve pushed myself SO much, both mentally and physically to actually finish this degree. Truthfully, this has been one of the most challenging experiences of my life. This paper alone has made me want to drop out of Oxford University. Twice.

“I’ve done something only a few can do, and I don’t need to ask for anyone’s respect or flowers – I’ve earned them!” She wrote in the caption.

Cuppy also stated that despite concluding the thesis, she was in no mood to party, as she needed time to “rest and rebuild”

“People keep asking where the party is?! LMAO I need to rest and rebuild. It is important to understand that when you have worked as hard as I have for a project like this, you get so fatigued and partying is the last thing on your mind,” she said.

“I am thankful for all the people who have supported me and proud of myself throughout this process. Lastly, I am thankful to God who has been with me the entire way!!!”

In March 2021, the artiste revealed that she had been accepted into Oxford for a master’s degree in African Studies.

This would be her second master’s degree as she bagged one in Music Business from New York University in 2015.
