POPULAR presenter, Denrele Edun needs no introduction. His flamboyant personality and eccentric dress sense have made many to think that he is gay or transsexual. Surprisingly, celebrity Psychiatrist, Maymunah Kadiri, has cleared the entertainer of such insinuations, saying in a Facebook post that Denrele is neither gay, nor mentally disturbed in any way.
In the post which she titled The Denrele Edun you must meet and know, after a personal encounter, she said: “ . . . Almost throughout my school days, a particular young man named Denrele Edun became my unofficial client/patient. Over 90% of the students including some facilitators believed he was a #sick, #crazy, #psycho #mad man. He was constantly used as a case study to explain the business in the entertainment industry”.
She continued, “Fast forward, our organisation decided to campaign and increase the awareness on mental health by creating documentaries to depict this Societal menace. Our first script came through and was named Peppersoup. The producer and I decided to look for the right person who will really showcase this character and ….Denrele Edun came to mind. I’m sure you are also thinking what I’m thinking….Denrele is already a mad man na…so, why him. We prayed that he will accept the role and make himself available for the shooting. Lo and behold, Grace Edwin Oboba, our beautiful producer sent him the script and then…..the BIG NEWS!!! Denrele did not only accept the script, but fell in love with it…”
After having worked with Denrele Edun on a project, and relating with him over a period of time, Maymunah gave her professional judgment about the eccentric presenter, “Denrele is a handsome young man who is very intelligent and passionate about his career. All you see is his prolific way of standing out of the crowd because he is destined to be unique. Socially, he neither drinks alcohol nor smokes any psychoactive substances. …….and also he is NOT Gay. So keep calm and stop drinking phensic for his headache.”
