Plans have been concluded by British Airways to bring Nigerian-born musician DJ Cuppy Afrobeats to Flyers, with an exclusive playlist available onboard from the 1st of November, 2023.
This is to celebrate the increase in the number of flights between Africa and London with the launch of British Airways’ new route from Accra to London Gatwick – in addition to its daily services to London Heathrow.
DJ Cuppy and British Airways
Cuppy’s DJ skills have taken her to over 30 countries across the globe. She has curated her top tracks for the airline’s inflight entertainment system.
This playlist will transport travelers to a far-away paradise before their flight has even touched down.
Customers across British Airways’ entire long-haul network will be able to enjoy tracks including “Jollof On The Jet” and “Feel Good”, blending spicy African beats with hip hop and reggae.
DJ Cuppy speaks on partnership
Musician, frequent flyer, and philanthropist, DJ Cuppy, said: “Like British Airways, music has the power to transport us to different places around the world so I’m super excited to partner with them on their first ever Afrobeats playlist, bringing feel-good vibes right to flyers’ seats. I’m pleased to add this exclusive mix to their extensive music collection and hope customers sit back, plug in their headphones, and turn the volume up!”
What British Airways said
British Airways’ Chief Customer Officer, Calum Laming said: “Enjoying the latest music, films, and boxsets is one of the things our customers most look forward to when they fly with us, so we’re pleased to partner with Cuppy and bring more exclusive mixes to flyers’ fingertips. This year we’ve doubled the entertainment content available on board and music lovers can settle in and enjoy curated playlists and popular podcasts from every genre.”
