Nigerian DJ, Cuppy, Begins A New Chapter; Inks A Deal With Platoon UK

Published

After successfully securing a spot as the host of Apple Music’s Africa Now Radio show, Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola – a Nigerian disc jockey and producer professionally known as Cuppy, has signed a publishing and management deal with Platoon – a startup out of London that works primarily with musicians — but also other creators like writers.

According to award-winning Disk Jockey who is yet to release her debut album “Original Cuppy”, the Apple owned firm being her ally for music has now literally enabled her craft and secured a slot in the music ecosystem. She made this agreement public in a video in which was shared on 7 July.

Platoon was launched in 2016 by industry expert Denzyl Feigelson and LoveFilm co-founder Saul Klein with the goal of supporting the independent distribution of music. Over the years, it has partnered with leading musicians like Mr Eazi, Billie Eilish, Jacob Banks, and award-winning UK stars Stefflon Don and Jorja Smith.

And, in 2018, a report in Music Business Worldwide confirmed that, Apple has acquired Platoon, a startup out of London that works primarily with musicians — but also other creators like writers — to produce (it has its own studios), distribute and sell their work, using analytics to source talent, and figure out the best way to target and market that content: the modern-day tech equivalent of A&R services.

“He is a sleeping dog. Jupiter is gone. His time is past and gone. If he is trying to do something, then it will be for attention. There is a new energy. We have times and seasons and this is the time for Kahpun,” he said.

Touching on Epixode, Kahpun maintained his stance. “Epixode is just like Jupiter. We have times and seasons. They had their time and now it is my time.” He was however optimistic his assertion will not result in a beef. “Jupiter will understand and he knows I am saying the truth,” he said jokingly.
