Nigerian DJ Cuppy has given back to African schools and communities during her ongoing ‘Cuppy Takes Africa’ tour.
Her charitable efforts were felt in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The stop in Nairobi was solely based on Charity work at the Kibera School for Girls. The school is the first free primary school for girls in the community. In Dar es Salaam, she visited a charity community center in Kigamboni Community Center, which provides free nursery and primary education for children without access to public schools.
The ambitious month-long tour started on August 1 2015 in Lagos Nigeria followed by Senegal, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda is hence the sixth country in her tour and will be preceded by Uganda and South Africa.
“Exploring Africa and its vast culture has always been a dream of mine,” she explained at a press conference in Lagos on July 8, 2015. “I am so excited to discover the music, the people and soak in experiences from this tour!” she added.
In Kenya, Cuppy visited the Kibera School For Girls with her team and sponsors. Kibera is the largest slum in Africa, located three miles from the center of downtown Nairobi and home to an estimated 1 million people. The school addresses gender inequality, gives free nursery and primary education to girls and also focuses on community empowerment and health.
In Tanzania Cuppy visited the Kigamboni Community Center (KCC). The center addresses the issues of poverty and the lack of access to education and other learning opportunities for the youth in Kigamboni. KCC provides free nursery and primary education for children without access to public schools, it also provides a social education, talent development classes and a vocational training programme. The ‘Cuppy Takes Africa’ tour chose this center because of its dedication to fostering talent and creating access to education to its community.
