‘Recast Presents The Cuppy College Tour’ – will see the Nigerian superstar travel the country in a pink Cuppy’s College Tour bus, generating behind-the-scenes content as she goes. Cuppy’s Recast Channel will give fans unprecedented access to her life on tour, as she visits campuses across the country – including London, Liverpool, Bristol, Bath, York and Loughborough – starting in London on Friday 23rd September and running through until the end of October.  

Following the tour, Cuppy will continue to produce regular content for her Recast Channel, including an exclusive weekly show of intimate chats with her closest friends from the worlds of sport, music & TV.  

Andy Meikle, Founder and CEO of Recast, said: “Our move into entertainment  kick-starts an exciting new chapter for Recast. While we continue to improve access to content across the world of sport, this announcement demonstrates our platform’s potential to revolutionise what it means to stream, for any industry and any content creator.

“Not only can fans enjoy exclusive content from one of the globe’s premier DJs, they can do so in a way that is affordable, fair and without barriers, through the use of Recast’s microtransaction platform – in the knowledge that they are directly supporting the earnings of the artist they love, not the platform provider.”

Cuppy comments on her arrival on to Recast: I’m so excited to team up with Recast to give my fans more insight and access to my world than ever before! We’re hitting the road today on my UK student tour and Cupcakes across the globe can follow all our adventures on my pink Cuppy’s College Tour bus exclusively on Recast – watch out for some very special guests en route!”
