Why my family once moved from duplex to uncompleted building – Denrele Edun

Popular Nigerian entertainer, Denrele Edun, on Wednesday disclosed that his family once moved from a duplex to an uncompleted building.

In an Instagram post, the event host stated that his family made such a move when things became hard for his father.

Denrele made the post to celebrate the sacrifices his father made for the family as he marked the latter’s 80th birthday.

He said, “My Dad and Mum actually met in Hamburg Germany and when we came to Nigeria, he invested heavily in his own bakery.

“We were living life in opulence and grandeur and then wham bam (village people o!), he lost everything and we moved from our palatable duplex into an uncompleted building with no doors and windows!

“But that’s in the past. Papa (as he’s fondly called) has been staying with me for over two decades. Yes, my Dad stays with me and I wanna make up for lost time and give him the life he rightly deserves and used to know in Europe.” (sic)

As a popular entertainer in the Nigerian space, Denrele has delved into various artistic ventures including cross-dressing, event hosting, acting, and a host of others.

The cross-dresser then revealed that his father defended him in the past when family members complained about his dressing and when the church excommunicated him.

He wrote, “During my modeling phase, dating back as far as 1997/1998 when teenage rebellion set in, I’d rip my Dad’s church shirts, take out a sleeve, throw on all the safety pins in the world and step out in the streets for myriads of castings looking like ‘A child in urgent need of a bedspace at Yaba Left’ (according to my cousins o!).
Guess what? He never complained!

“Rather, he would buy me plenty safety pins/chains/zips from the market and would always rise to my defense if family members raged about my dressing and even when the church ex-communicated me!” (sic)
