Nigerian disc jockey, DJ Cuppy has cleared the air concerning her friendship with Kiddwaya, the ex-BBNaija housemate.
The Nigerian billionaire’s daughter, Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola also known as DJ Cuppy spoke during an Instagram live chat with Kidwayya on Wednesday.
The duo sparked rumour of a romantic relationship in 2020 when Kiddwaya sent wishes to the disc jockey during a diary session of the BBNaija reality show.
“The second message goes out to my second favourite girl Cuppy. I know she supports me out there. Thank you for your support. You have always been there for me and always close to my heart. I love you always,” he had said.
The duo, however, fell out on the set of Highlife, a British documentary-reality TV show, and it affected their real-life friendship.
DJ Cuppy said the platonic relationship between them is “very misunderstood,” because most people believe they hate each other.
She added that they “are super close as friends” while professing the amount of respect she has for the reality TV star.
“I feel like our friendship is very misunderstood. The fact that people actually think that we have bad feelings towards each other is mad,” DJ Cuppy said.
“Because it’s the opposite, we are super close as friends. I have nothing but respect for you, and I’m really proud of you. I’m so proud of the man that you’re becoming.”
Last year, the celebrity best friends got social media users talking after Kiddwaya is seen kissing DJ Cuppy on the cheek, in a public display of affection(PDA) in one of the photos.
Some commenters suggest that they should take their friendship to a next level and start dating.
Kiddwaya in September 2020 hinted on having a more intimate relationship with the popular disc jockey.
