DJ Cuppy rings Opening Bell at New York Stock Exchange

DJ Cuppy recently took her baller lifestyle to the Big Apple as she rung the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on Tuesday.

Ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange is an honour typically given to business bigwigs and CEOs, and the occasional celebrity.

DJ Cuppy, real name Florence Otedola, becomes the first Nigerian entertainer to ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange – the largest by market capitalization in the world, Premium Times writes.

Cuppy, daughter of Nigerian billionaire Femi Otedola, was granted the honour to ring the NYSE opening bell in the company of the vice-president, NYSE listings, Chris Taylor.

The 26-year-old was clad in a pink trouser suit and was applauded by the audience on the exchange floor immediately she hit the bell to kickstart a new day of trading.

The popular disc-jockey, who has worked with American rap superstar Jay Z, has enjoyed a meteoric career since she burst on the scene in 2013.

Her recent single ‘Gelato’, featuring indigenous rapper Zlatan Ibile, claimed the number three spot on the Apple Music chart on the first day of release.
