'House Of Cuppy II', Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola, aka DJ Cuppy, is set to kick off an eight-city continent wide tour across Africa. Titled 'Cuppy Takes Africa', the ambitious tour will kick off in Nigeria in August before travelling through eight countries with a final stop in South Africa.      

"Exploring Africa and its rich and diverse culture has always been a dream of mine," Cuppy said at Wednesday's press conference inLagos. "I am so excited about discovering the music and the people, and soaking up the whole experience," she added.  

The celebrated DJ has a slew of high profile performances under her belt, including the 2014 Financial Times Summit and MTV Africa Music Awards, and is passionate about the education of Africa's future leaders. In partnership with the Dangote Foundation, she will be giving charitable support to girls' schools and NGOs in every country she visits on the tour.

Cuppy said: "One of the aims of the tour is to promote female empowerment in Africa. The message I want to get across to young girls is that whatever their calling in life, they can aspire to it."

Cuppy Takes Africa is proudly sponsored by GTBank and will include performances, major artiste collaborations, press ops, and charitable engagements. After the opening night in Lagos, Cuppy will continue through SenegalGhanaKenyaTanzaniaRwanda,Uganda, and South Africa.  

"I hope the next few weeks are as exciting and enriching for those we meet as they will undoubtedly be for us," she said.
