Florence Otedola, popularly known as DJ Cuppy has made a donation of £100,000 to Oxford University to support African graduates. As an Oxford graduate with two master’s degrees, Cuppy established the “Cuppy African Oxford Fund” to provide scholarships to Africans seeking higher education.
Cuppy announced the scholarship fund on her Instagram page, explaining that she hopes to empower future African leaders by providing them with the necessary knowledge, tools, and networks to effect change in Africa and beyond. She believes that education can be a powerful tool in supporting individuals to achieve their full potential over the next ten years.
The 30-year-old DJ stated, “Proud to launch the Cuppy Africa Oxford Fund! I just graduated from Oxford_Uni and so this partnership means a lot to me…This £100,000 gift is in support of African Graduate students. It aims to support future leaders from the continent by enabling them to access the necessary skills, resources and networks to maximise their impact. Over the next 10 years, my hope is to support those in their education journeys and reach their full potential during their time at Oxford and beyond.”
