Denrele Edun who has been in the news for weeks for his controversial photos has granted a new interview where he speaks about the use of drugs and his younger sister.
In the interview Denrele Edun spoke about his younger sister Ronke Edun who many say behaves and dresses like a man. “There are plenty misconceptions anyway. I have two younger sisters. My immediate younger sister has a lot of tattoos. I don’t have tattoos or piercing but this one has plenty of tattoos. You know we are all together, we are family. Once in a while I can take her shirt, she can take my jeans and because we wear a lot of each other’s clothes everybody just assumes she is trying to be a man. My other one is normal. You know Nigerians, they will forever talk. Leave them to talk their talk. But my sister Ronke is Ronke, Jumoke is Jumoke, Denrele is Denrele” he told Naij.
Denrele also spoke about his marriage plans, a story which first came up months ago online.
“I wouldn’t necessarily say wedding rumors because I was talking to someone and it was a conversation on wedding and I was said for my wedding, my wife’s dress will be short, we will not spend plenty money on elaborate material and my own suit will be long and very dramatic. I was just saying I wouldn’t want the media to know who I am getting married to so that they won’t just wahala the girl for me.
"We will use veil to cover her face till the wedding is over, anyone that wants to see her will pay money. It was just one of those talks. And everybody started talking Denrele is getting married. People in my life started saying, ‘you are getting married and you didn’t tell me.’ I still deal with the wedding story every day. I am definitely going to get married. I wanted to even marry this year. At a point the media blew it out of proportion and I was just hoping the girl I was going to marry would not wake up one morning and say ‘’wait o na me wan marry this guy way dey wear high heel carry hair for head?” She go think am twice. I just hope she is not thinking about it” he said.
The former Sound City VJ is known to be energetic and hyperactive. To the shock of many the vibrant media celebrity says he does not take drugs, smoke and drink. “Well, you see that drinking and smoking part, I would have been really something else. A lot of artists and entertainers not only in Nigeria but around the world take a lot of stimulants before they get on stage, to enhance and boost their stage performances, but I don’t because I am naturally a hyper-energetic person. And I thought about it, if I take this thing “e go melo me o”. If I took all the hard drugs I would just be very slow and be looking at everybody. Maybe I think that is what that sort of thing will do to someone like me.
"I have never smoked in my life. Drinking, I can hold a glass of champagne for four hours and just be talking and laughing and act as if I want to drink it. Before you know it, I would just look for where to throw it away, but I have never smoked in my life.”
