If you love the delish dish of Jollof rice, you’ll love this jam!
‘Jollof On The Jet’ is a smooth slice of Afro-pop, seeing Cuppy, Rayvanny and Rema trade verses amidst a relaxed, sunkissed production. Speaking about the collaboration, Cuppy says “Working on this collaboration was so uplifting. Due to social-distancing, we didn’t actually record in the studio together, but the beat encapsulated all of us and I truly believe we have created a delicious masterpiece!”
Cuppy burst onto the scene in 2014 when she was selected as a DJ at the MTV Africa Music Awards. In 2015 she embarked on Cuppy Takes Africa Tour, the tour was filmed and a documentary series of the same name aired on Fox Life. Cuppy has a catalogue of five strong singles including her compilation ‘Green Light’ with Tekno as well as her last release ‘Gelato’ featuring Zlatan.
An exciting, modern afro-pop jam, ‘Jollof On The Jet’ will no doubt enhance the excitement surrounding Cuppy’s forthcoming debut album even further.
