It was tears of joy for Florence Otedola, the Nigerian disc jockey better known as DJ Cuppy, after the completion of her thesis at Oxford University in the United Kingdom.
In October 2021, the singer announced that she would be pursuing a master’s degree in African Studies at Oxford.
But in a Twitter post on Friday, the ‘Gelato’ crooner opened up about how difficult the journey had been for her.
Florence also revealed that she had thought of dropping out of school on two occasions.
“Tears of joy!!! The wait is finally over!!! My Thesis is finally 100% done!!! Not sure why weeping is my reaction right now. I’m so drained that it actually feels so difficult to celebrate,” she wrote.
“Over the last few weeks, I’ve pushed myself so much, both mentally and physically to actually finish this degree. Truthfully, this has been one of the most challenging experiences of my life.
“This paper alone has made me want to drop out of Oxford University twice. I’ve done something only a few can do, and I don’t need to ask for anyone’s respect or flowers – I’ve earned them! People keep asking where the party is?!
“Lmao I need to rest and rebuild. It is important to understand that when you have worked as hard as I have for a project like this, you get so fatigued and partying is the last thing on your mind.
“I am thankful for all the people who have supported me and proud of myself throughout this process. Lastly, I am thankful to God who has been with me the entire way!!!”
