The single, “Gelato” seems to be a catchy tune and promises to be a ‘club banger’. Gelato is a follow up to her previous hit single “Abena”, in which Ceeza Milli, Shaydee and Ghanian Kwesi Arthur were featured.

Recall that in July, DJ Cuppy and her billionaire father, Femi Otedola made a quick stop while travelling across Europe just to get a frozen Italian dessert named ‘Gelato’. The video of father and daughter eating the ice-cream trended on social media for a while.
Nigerians have reacted in diverse ways reactions to the new song, some think it’s trash while others think only Zlatan did well on the track. Despite the disc jockey has consistently been slammed for her singing prowess, she has vehemently refused to stop doing what seems to be her passion. Check out some reactions below.
Sometimes i wonder if Cuppy have seen the series EMPIRE. She has the mad money to build one the of biggest music record label in Nigeria, enter street pick up boys, make them stars and make extra madt cash, but no. Madam insist she will sing… I'm weak y'all, I'm tired #GELATO

If there's any Nigerian artiste I respect other than Burna, it's Dj Cuppy.
No one has been mocked online as much as her yet somehow, she still manages to give off such positive vibes like someone immune to hate.
Having money truly does change one's perspective on life.#GELATO

Hanty Cuppy should just be like DJ Khaled. Her talent might be to buy other people's talent from songwriters, to artistes that will sing.
Just say "to cuppy this tune, press this". We like that one already and don't Cross that line #GELATO pic.twitter.com/SJ47A02cZr
