Mr Eazi & DJ Cuppy

Nigerians like DJ, musician, Founder and Director, Red Velvet Music Group Florence Otedola, professionally known as DJ Cuppy, Mr Eazi of emPawa Africa, Swanky Jerry, Asisat Oshoala, Patoranking, Davies Okeowo, Tracy Batta, Olajumoke Oduwole, Maryam Gwadabe are the 9 individuals who have made it to Forbes Africa’s 30Under30 list.

Over 3,000 nominations were sent for the Under 30 list at the beginning of this decade. The entries were finally reduced to 30 names.

Nigeria is definitely the Giant of Africa with creative youths putting in the work to carve a niche and brand around their areas of interest instead of focusing on a 9-5. Entrepreneurship is not a walk in the park!

DJ Cuppy penned the note below to announce the good news:

Work until you no longer need to introduce yourself! 💡 #Forbes30Under30 Class of 2020 baby!
