Denrele Edun remembering his hustle days, saying, “I used to be a cage and shrine dancer.”

Divisive Nigerian television personality Denrele Edun says that before being well-known, she was a cage dancer and a shrine.

In an interview regarding his media career with Arise News TV, the TV and event anchor made this statement.

Denrele remembered his time spent as a dancer in the renowned Afrikan Shrine of the late Fela, where he labored to support himself while pursuing his studies at the University of Lagos.


Denrele stated;

โ€œI used to dance in the shrine. I used to be in the cage, yes, I used to be one of the cage dancers. I did everything to hustle at that time. And I was still in Unilag at that time. So I was a backup dancer every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Afrikan Shrine and I was a cage dancer.


Also, I used to dance for the Iroko band which was headlined by Dr Ola Balogun, one of the pioneers of filmmaking. Come May 21st I will be marking 3 decades in the Entertainment Industry. I started professionally in 1994, on a TV soap opera. My first paycheck was N150โ€.
