Cuppy Otedola, 23, right, and her sister Temi, 19, will one day inherit their father’s fortune but first Cuppy wants to be a successful DJ while Temi is a fashion blogger.

Heiresses to a billion dollar fortune and leading a jet-set lifestyle enjoying all the trappings of wealth.

Cuppy Otedola, 23, and her sister Temi, 19, are well-known as the daughters of energy tycoon Femi Otedola, worth an estimated £650million.

But the daughters of one of Africa’s richest men say they are not content being rich and famous in his shadow, and instead want to work hard to make names for themselves in their own right.

Femi lives in Lagos but comes to London regularly to see his family.

Femi Otedola is  listed as the 16th richest man in Africa by Forbes in 2015 and has million pound properties in New York, Dubai, London, Abuja and Lagos.

His wealth has enabled his daughters to attend expensive private schools in England, have designer wardrobes and be waited on by ten members of staff.

As well as jet-setting between the opulent family properties around the world, they also enjoy spending time on their father’s £7million yacht, have designer wardrobes and throw birthday parties that cost more than a fleet of supercars.

Lagos to London

Nigerian sisters Temi, left, and Cuppy love London because they are shop at Harrods and spend time in private members clubs.

Cuppy wants to be famous in her own right as a DJ and has been securing gigs around the world at venues including Privé, Jalouse, District and Funky Buddha.

While Cuppy admits her father’s fortune has opened doors and helped her network, she then has to prove her talent behind the decks to secure more work.

She said: ‘I think I am a great DJ. Network comes into it but if I don’t do well I won’t get asked back no matter whose daughter I am.’

Cuppy, who recently graduated from King’s College, University of London, with a degree in business and French, said she wants to become renowned around the world as a DJ and make it into Forbes 30 under 30 Rich List.

Cuppy, who DJs wearing £1,000 headphones covered in Swarovski crystals (of which she owns 15 pairs), adds that being the daughter of a billionaire also brings with it additional problems.

When she is working in Nigeria she needs to travel with a security team in a bullet proof car due to the risk of robbery and kidnapping.

Her younger sister, Temi,  feels the same and she is busy trying to establish a name for herself in the fashion world. Temi has set up her own style blog JTO Fashion and has 22,000 followers on Instagram.

She shares news on the latest style must-haves with her fans – many of whom are Nigerian – as she travels between the fashion capitals of Europe and shops in Dubai and London.

She said she feels her blog is ‘acting as the medium between Nigeria and the rest of the world’.

Temi has been running her blog for the last year and said it has helped her establish a number of contacts with key fashion houses including Valentino.

Temi has hired professional photographers to help her with her blog but said any money her father has given to help her is a loan she will repay.

Temi admits she wouldn’t have been able to establish her blog without her father’s financial support – but she sees the help he has given her so far as a loan she intends to repay.

She has a team of professionals to help her on her photoshoots taking pictures and filming her vlogs and has even hired top fashion photographer Kate Davis MaCleod to take some of her pictures.
