Denrele And His Unconventional Self Cover Guardian Life's Latest Issue 4

Multi-award wining media personality and host, Denrele, is the cover star for Guardian Life‘s latest issue. The ‘Lip Sync Battle’ host gives an interesting chat about his career and his most talked about unconventional style. Read excerpts from his interview below:

On being the most controversial male entertainer to wear women’s clothing, makeup, hair extensions and statement heels, he explains:

“I was inspired by clothes that were meant for the runway, I wanted to look different from the guy next door. Forget the outlandish hair, I can walk in anywhere and still get what I want. Nobody understood what I was trying to do. In as much as Nigerians are fun loving, we are also conservative, so I got a lot of negative reception”

On his decision to dress as a female being a difficult choice, he recalls instances he was physically and psychologically bruised for sticking to it. He says:

“When I didn’t have a car, conductors would push me out of the buses and they would shout about a mad man on the loose, when I was in Unilag people used to stone me with pure water…. I remember going home to cry, it wasn’t just the choir, they told me to stop coming to church, it was difficult”

Denrele regained his confidence when he landed his first major interview with Remi Tinubu, the former first lady of Lagos who rewarded him with 50,000 Naira after she told him, “You are so good at what you do! Do not change.” At that point he adds, “ I thought if she can tell me this, then to hell with anybody!”
