32 Year Old Adenrele Olwafemi Edun whom you probably know as the popular Denrele Edun is a rare Nigerian personalty.
Denrele is arguably one of the best at what he does in the Nigeria entertainment industry and has always brought so much to the table wherever and whenever he’s called upon.
He is currently a television presenter for Channel O and has had former stints with reputable urban channels like Soundcity and more.
Denrele was born in Hamburg, Germany to a Yoruba father and an Indian-Mauritius mother.
He grew up in Germany and came to Nigeria when he was just five where he attended St Gregory’s College, Ikoyi and the University of Lagos.
The Red Carpets and Events Monster as i have dubbed him, is also notably known for his unique fashion style and personality.
He started his television career as an actor at eleven when he played a presenter/producer on Kiddievision 101 onNTA Network.
Denrele has interviewed the likes of Akon, Beyoncé Knowles, Tyler Perry, Lil’ Kim, Snoop Dogg, Cuba Gooding, Amerie, and LLoyd.
He is an entertainment personality whose style has been described as “punk and fun”.
In an interview with ModernGhana, he stated “I am just expressing my individuality. Most people ask me that question and I would say I just want to be me. Some people think I dress like this to attract attention, but I have always had attention from childhood”.
Its not an oversight if i say Denrele is insanely loved by so many of his friend and fellow celebrities for his direct style.
However, the fashion star has still also managed to court controversy at every turn for this same Direct lifestyle he is supposedly loved for.
Some actually have used hate words at him for this same lifestyle and it seems he doesn’t just care – and lives his life anyway.
He was actually forced out of SoundCity where he previously worked before moving on to become one of Channel O’s VJs – probably because of this same lifestyle.
His love for the center stage and the spot light is unparalleled (maybe, only by few). He courts and brews controversy with every outfit he wears, his Instagram post and even what he says.
The fact that he fiddles with the very touchy and controversial topic surrounding Gay rights in the country makes people more enraged.
The Video Jockey, posted some new pictures yesterday where he Jokingly dubbed himself as a Nigerian Caitlyn Jenner, sparking outrage on twitter and across major social media platforms.
NB: This is not an attempt to vindicate him or condemn him, rather we just sought to show who he really is – the fact that he’s good at his job and how he has also managed to draw controversy in the process.
