Popular Nigerian artist and philanthropist, Florence Otedola a.k.a. DJ Cuppy, has revealed that she feeds around 70,000 children every day in Borno state.
Cuppy, who was recently named as one of the ambassadors of the Lagos SDGs Youth Alliance network by the Lagos State Government, revealed this in an interview with TVC.
She devotes her resources to assisting the poor, particularly children, because she believes they will be the leaders of tomorrow.
Speaking on her new appointment, 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”.
