Celebrity disk jockey DJ Cuppy and her sister Temi Otedola on Thursday, June 2, 2022, took to social media to celebrate their brother Fewa Otedola who clocked 22.
Fewa, who is autistic, is the only son born to billionaire Femi Otedola.
The youngest of Mr Otedola’s three daughters Temi posted a picture of herself holding hands with Fewa on Instagram.
She wrote: “Happy birthday to my little brother and the treasure of my life. Fewa!You bring so much joy to my life and I can’t wait to squeeze your face today.
Cuppy, born Florence Otedola, also posted a picture of herself and Fewa on Instagram, saying she was proud of the man her younger brother was becoming.
The disk jockey, who has an album in her name, said that although her brother has autism, he was not ashamed of being in the spotlight.
Sharing a photo collage of herself and Fewa, Cuppy wrote: “Happy 22nd Birthday to my baby brother, Fewa Otedola! In case you didn’t know my brother has severe AUTISM but there is absolutely no shame in being on the spectrum. He is my God-given gift #FamilyFirst
Speaking further, the 29-year-old threatened to block those making nasty comments about her brother.
She wrote: “PS: I have not and will never give a fuck about what people say about ME on social media, BUT best believe IF anybody even TRIES to say anything nasty about my brother’s disability – not ONLY will I have them BLOCKED but I will also report them to Instagram for cyberbullying.”
Femi Otedola also celebrated his son on Instagram saying, “Happy birthday to my dearest Fewa. Papa loves you so much.”
In November 2019, Cuppy revealed her brother’s condition while purchasing a painting by a nine-year-old boy with autism at Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Autism is a serious developmental disorder that impairs the ability to communicate and interact.
