Speaking about the inspiration behind the album to Red Bull editors the DJ Cum musician shared;
“I wanted to go for a very authentic collaboration. The album is proudly African and is inspired by my own journey. The first record is called ‘Epe’ which is my hometown in Lagos. It’s this amazing journey of me, a young, exciting, African woman, with this global vision, with highs and lows, ups and downs. It’s me trying to represent myself and be my authentic self. I’ve been lucky enough to live around the world. I have to say, being African is the best thing ever.”

On her Africaness infused in the album Cuppy also shared;
“It was always this way so there are parts of this album where I celebrate my Africaness. But there are also parts where I can remember that I wasn’t so proud of being African because I was stuck in this Western mentality where I felt like I had to fit in, I had to change who I was. So this is me being unapologetically myself. And it’s about time for me.”
