“You’re not the richest black man, my godfather Dangote is” – DJ Cuppy tells Kanye West
Billionaire heiress, Florence Otedola, better known as DJ Cuppy, has reacted after American rapper, Kanye West bragged about being the richest black man.
Kanye described himself as the richest black man during an appearance on Hollywood hosted by Jason Lee, while he narrated an encounter with a security guard at his daughter’s school who said he couldn’t go inside.
“Earlier this week, Monday, when I went to go pick my kids up from school, the security stopped me at the gate. So at that point, security was in between me and my children and that’s what was not going to happen. But I didn’t want to argue about it. So I just chilled, took my kids to school, and then took my kids back. I am driving. I bring them back and North was like, ‘I want you to come upstairs and see something. And it’s like, ‘Oh, Daddy can’t come see something. Daddy can’t come inside.’ But that hadn’t been defined.” He said.
“My daughter wanted me to go inside. I was like, I am the richest Black man and North’s father, right, and the security was able to stop me from going into the room with my daughter and that had not been defined. And I am hearing that the new boyfriend is actually in the house that I can’t even go to.
“And that’s where I call my cousins. And my cousin is real opinionated, you know that. And I said, ‘I need you to go and say these two things. Security ain’t going to be in between me and my children, and my children ain’t going to be on TikTok without my permission.” He added.
Reacting to this, in a tweet, billionaire daughter and Nigerian disc jockey, DJ Cuppy, reminded the rapper that he isn’t the richest black man.
According to her, although she’s a big fan of Kanye, he should know that her godfather, Aliko Dangote, is the richest black man and not him.
“Random, I know… I am a HUGE @KanyeWest fan . However with ALL due respect, I feel the need to remind him that he is not the “richest black man” -it is in fact my Godfather @AlikoDangote. Just clearing the air with #Facts”, she tweeted.
