Cuppy, who holds two master’s degrees from Oxford, founded the “Cuppy African Oxford Fund” as a scholarship fund for Africans.
She unveiled the fund on Instagram, with the purpose of aiding future African leaders by providing them with the information, skills, and networks they need to have the largest impact on Africa and beyond.

The 30-year-old DJ wrote, “Proud to launch the Cuppy Africa Oxford Fund! I just graduated from Oxford_Uni and so this partnership means a lot to me…This £100,000 gift is in support of African Graduate students. It aims to support future leaders from the continent by enabling them to access the necessary skills, resources and networks to maximise their impact. Over the next 10 years, my hope is to support those in their education journeys and reach their full potential during their time at Oxford and beyond.”
