Why I Stopped Being A Feminist – DJ Cuppy
By Temitope Ojo
Celebrity disk jockey and singer, DJ Cuppy, has stated that she never intends to come out as a feminist because she operates in a male-dominated industry.
She revealed that she used to consider herself a feminist until she realised that she did not really understand the idea of being a feminist.
In an Interview with City FM, the 25-year-old said she doesn’t like hypocrites and feel people who come to pitch their tent under feminism are hypocrites.
She said: “I used to consider myself a feminist until I realised that I did not really understand it. I don’t like people who are hypocrites. People are out there speaking about women rights, but behind closed doors are doing crazy things.
“I will never come out as a feminist because I am in a male-dominated industry, so I have a certain scenario. I deal with men on a daily basis and I realise that they will always think that they are better than women. I don’t think it is going to solve it.
“But you must also limit the amount of attention you give them because let’s be honest, the more energy you put into one thing, the less time you can into another.
