I don’t care when I get negative criticism – Denrele Edun
Nigerian award winning TV host and presenter, Derenle Edun joined Titi and Yomi on TVC’s entertainment show, #WakeUPNigeria where he talked about growing up, school & his amazing fashion style.
Speaking about family life, Derenle whose full name is Aderenle Oluwafemi Edun said;
“I was born in Germany, My dad is a Yoruba boy from Ogun state, my mom’s father is Indian and my mom’s mother is from Mauritius. My dad escaped from his crazy family, my mom left her family too, met somewhere and decided to conceive this abnormal human being.”
The TV host and presenter who graduated from the University of Lagos, revealed that he stayed at home for a year because he was too young to get into the university, and then decided to take on a teaching job.
“If there is anything I would love to do outside entertaining, it would be teaching. I love teaching and I did it for a year after secondary school because I was too young to enter the university. When I gained admission into the university, I started modelling and I had to skip some classes.”
Speaking about his career so far, he noted that he was not made in a day and the money did not start coming in a day.
“Derenle was not built in a day. I was more about the creatives and my delivery, so i was cheated a lot. Back then before the advent of social media, people walk up to me and insult me, I have received different kinds of insults, confrontations and that’s why when I see people insult me on social media; I am like, ‘you don’t know where I am coming from.’ I have built an impressive data base, I have helped a lot of people, I did a lot of anchoring for free and some people are still owing me. Till now, I still anchor for free.”
