VIDEO: Cuppy ft Tunji Oyelana- I Love My Country

Post by Ovie O, July 17th, 2013

“Formerly known as DJ Cupcake, Cuppy has decided to release her first single from her upcoming EP, which is billed to drop this summer. She has created an interesting and unique sound alongside a video, which blends Afrobeats with the internationally popular Dance/House music. The song titled, “I love my Country”, is a remake of an 80’s hit which was written by Nobel laureate, Chief Wole Soyinka and originally sung by ace Highlife musician, Tunji Oyelana.

Wole Soyinka and Tunji Oyelana composed the song, which was first sung during one of Soyinka’s major theatre presentations, “The Beautification of Area Boy”, but then grew to become a huge hit with music followers at the time and went on to sell many records in the early 80’s.”

  3. Brand Naija + International summer anthem. Brilliant. Takes me way back to the days of DJ Pied Piper and The MCs…good job Moe plus its so cool how cuppy doesn't flaunt how rich her dad is.

      This is outrageous and sad… so Ice prince wears an american flag to his award and we attack him(me included) then this new artiste releases an international naija flag flying song a few days later and we still hack it to death. Proof that we as Nigerians and Africans as a whole don't even require an external catalyst to destroy ourselves till there's no one left. I'm not saying "LOVE THE SONG" that's a matter of personal opinion even though this music has far more international potential which Nigerians seem to value so much nowadays but the harsh hate comments here seem to go well beyond the music verging on visiting the "sins of the father on the child. Just the same way people have been needlessly harsh, personal and careless with that Toni Tones video which she's now taken down. We lack female artistes but not a word of encouragement for the emerging ones just personal attacks. This isnt even logical or fair?

      Its pretty frustrating to know with mathematical certainty that this circle of confusion and chaos in the Nigerian consciousness is here to stay and far too easy to exploit. Cuppy Take heart…God Bless Nigeria!!! .

    this song is a badman tune what you on about more nigerians should make this kind of music.. afrobeats meets electro meets dance some british nigerians (me included) would love this. Good to see people branching out not sticking to the usual stuff!
