Nigerian Disc Jockey and Philanthropist, Florence Otedola popularly known as DJ Cuppy has disclosed she feeds about 70,000 children on a daily basis in Borno State.
Cuppy, whose father is billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, made this revelation during an interview with TVC while speaking on her appointment by the Lagos State Government as one of the ambassadors of the Lagos SDGs Youth Alliance network.
Speaking one of the works done by Cuppy Foundation, she said;
“On a daily basis, we feed about 70,000 children in Borno State and this is something that I do because I believe in tomorrow’s leaders. So, I’m not here as a celebrity but a humanitarian,” .
“This project is about asking young people what our struggles are. Youth will also be able to give feedback on how they think the government is doing and how they can improve.
“As we all know that young people are tomorrow’s leaders. I want to use this platform to encourage young people that education is great and knowledge is power.”
The Lagos State Office of Sustainable Development Goals and Investment recently appointed DJ Cuppy as an ambassador as part of its commitment towards mobilising opportunities to advance and scale up innovative solutions in the attainment of SDGs across the state.
