Diggy Dupé Speaks Out About Gambling Addiction On ‘CT&T’

Annabel Kean / Friday 19th June, 2020 9:25AM

Following his sick feature on Team Dynamite's 'Who?' and hot track 'Keke Boy', Diggy Dupé is ramping up for an epic 2020 album drop, with the latest single from That’s Me, That’s Team going live today. ‘CT&T’ unravels truths about growing up in a family and community affected by gambling addiction, told via slick, poetic bars and Christoph El’ Truento-produced beats. Dupé is no stranger to speaking out on Pacific issues in Tāmaki Makaurau, and is making the most of his platform with this single by promoting Mapu Maia, a gambling addiction organisation that offers a free, confidential phone line on which people can speak to counsellors in their own language. Short for 'Cuppa Tea & Toast', the latest from Diggy Dupé highlights one of many examples of systemic racism in Aotearoa...

“To all the families out there I wish them all the best this winter, stay warm. The room I lived in at my family house was a fridge, no shit I was raised next to black mould and all that so I know what it’s like to rough it out at night. Be smart with your finances. Or not. It’s really up to you. Just feed yourself before you feed the machines cuz.”

Diggy Dupé's album 'That’s Me, That’s Team' is out in late 2020 via DRM.

Anyone who needs to talk about own gambling and/or is affected by someone else’s gambling they can contact Mapu Maia for free on 0800 21 21 22 or visit to talk to someone confidentially in their own language.
