Nigerian forward, Emmanuel Dennis, was not among Nottingham Forest’s travelling squad that faced Arsenal over the weekend
The Super Eagles forward, Emmanuel Dennis, was recently seen in the company of popular Nigerian Disc Jockey, Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola, also known as DJ Cuppy, Soccernet.ng reports.
The Nottingham Forest striker, who was absent from the team’s opening match against Arsenal, engaged in a friendly interaction with the daughter of Nigerian business tycoon—Femi Otedola.
In a video, the two were conversing in pidgin English, as DJ Cuppy mentioned she had prepared a meal for her “guy.”
Dennis playfully revealed that she had actually ordered the food rather than cooking it herself. The musician then joked about Dennis exposing her secret.
“Naso Naso, hey!” she stated part of what she said. “I’m with my guy.”

Earlier, there were reports of Cuppy’s relationship with British boxer Ryan Taylor hitting a rough patch, leading to them unfollowing each other on social media.
Cuppy has been seen with various sports celebrities, including Anthony Joshua, and had previously posted a picture of herself with Dennis along with the caption “All My Guys Are Ballerzzzzzz ⚽️🇳🇬 @dennisblessed42.”

This sparked speculation within the Nigerian football community about a potential romantic connection between the two.
Dennis, who has yet to play for Nottingham Forest, aims to make an impact under Steve Cooper’s leadership when they take on newly promoted Sheffield United on August 18.
