Denrele Edun, a prominent figure in Nigerian media, has made it clear that he is not a transgender.
The fashionista put himself at a distance from well-known crossdressers like Bobrisky, James Brown, and others.
He revealed it when asked about the comparison to cross-dressers on Vanguard’s internet TV program, “Lunch Date with Vanguard.”
The fashion icon stated that he isn’t a social media sensation and his fame wasn’t a result of social media influence but a result of hard work and dedication.
Denrele said he has been in the industry since 1994- before the advent of social media.
He appreciates the influx of creatives in this generation who has carved a niche for themselves through brand presentation, social media influence, and leverage on the internet but states that there is a wide margin between him and them.
HE SAID: “YOU CAN’T RUBBISH THE PORTFOLIO OF WORK OF SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN ACTING, MODELING, AND REVOLUTIONALIZED THE RED CARPET CULTURE IN NIGERIA” DENRELE FURTHER ADDED THAT HE HAS BEEN A HUGE INFLUENCE IN FASHION SINCE 2005 AS WELL AS BEING AN ICONIC FIGURE AND INSTRUMENTAL IN THE SUCCESSES OF A PLETHORA OF NIGERIAN ARTISTES FROM THAT GENERATION TILL DATE. HE SAID HIS FASHION STYLE WAS INSPIRED BY POPULAR POP ARTISTES SUCH AS JIM REEVES, GIBSON BROTHER, AND PARTICULARLY, BONNY M AND IT SHOULDN’T BE MISINTERPRETED AS CROSS-DRESSING. THE POPULAR ENTERTAINER FURTHER ADDED THAT PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND HIS BRAND WHICH EXPLAINS THE MISCONCEPTION. HE SAID HIS BRAND IS UNCONVENTIONAL AND OUT OF THE BOX.
