The well-known crossdresser and entertainer from Nigeria, Denrele Edun, has made a shocking assertion.
He talked about his interactions with Big Brother Naija contestants.
The media personality acknowledged being “helpful” in the show’s operations during an appearance in an interview on Lunch Time with Vanguard, which was broadcast on Saturday.
He claims that some people seeking his assistance in getting chosen and participating in the show contacted him.
He said, “I get a lot of n*des from people who want to go for BBNaija. I get all kinds of monetary offers.
“I have gotten N100m, N50m, N30m and I tell people go and do something reasonable with your money.
“So, let’s just say if you don’t have a Denrele in your life that can help you rediscover yourself or help you get to the next level and give you direction to help you navigate your way through life, then what are you looking for? Go and find a Denrele.
“Away from that, yes! I have been instrumental to a lot of these things. It is what it is.
“I’m at the industry’s center of gravity. Let’s just say I know people in the right places, when they ask you, tell them to come and meet me.”
He noted it all started when winner of 2011 Big Brother Africa, Karen Igho, spoke about how he helped her to fill her application form.
“It all started when my good friend, Karen Igho got into the house and was always saying ‘na Denrele help me fill my form’.”
Denrele responded that he has a lot of fantastic people in the house and promised that more housemates will be entering the show when asked if his influence helped anyone get into the current BBNaija season 7.
Denrele said, “Well! I have a lot of amazing people in the house and some that are still coming in.”
