I was told I had HIV by the wife of a well-known DJ, Denrele relates.

Actor and media personality Denrele Edun is getting ready to commemorate thirty years in the entertainment business.

As he draws closer to this significant milestone in May, Denrele Edun recalled traumatic experience in which the wife of well-known DJ warned his favorite designer not to style him, claiming he was HIV positive and cautioning against his contact with her children because of his then-perceived fragile appearance.

Denrele was calm, just listening and grinning, even though she was hearing these harsh comments.

When Denrele looked back on his journey, he was thankful for the changes in his body and commented on how beautiful it was to put on weight after being called “anorexic,” “malnourished,” and even wrongly diagnosed as HIV positive.

In his words;

“Denrele, you’re a SAFE SPACE. A place that’s practically non-existent in this cràzy industry of ours, but you represent that and MORE”, @kachioffiah said to me whilst on the Arise 360 Live Show yesterday. Kachi is just the Iceberg destroying all Titanics!

“With a good Ear, refinement, and a degree of Performance perfection that is enviable, she sure made my time on @arisenewsofficial @arisetvafrica worth every second! Now, everyone look at ME! I’m adding WEIGHT and it’s so beautiful to see! For the past 4 Decades, I’ve been Skinny and sometimes labeled Anorexic, Malnourished, and even HIV Positive! Yes, you read the last part well.

“One famous DJ’s wife (at the time) told my favorite Designer not to style me in any outfits anymore or even allow me to touch her kids as it was evident I had HIV; “Can’t you see how Skinny he is? He looks so Diseased”, the jobless wife spluttered in a voice note. I listened and smiled. So here’s to adding WEIGHT in all the right places; My 27-inch waist is now 30!

“Who knew this day would ever come? Gotta do something about my neck though… E don full!

“P.S: Come May 2024, I shalt be marking 30 Years in the Showbiz Industry. 3 UNFUCKWITABLE DECADES! I DON TEYYYYYYYY OOOOOOO! I’m truly a Story waiting to be told! Started in 1993 but professionally got my major break in 1994! This time, I’m going HARD on Celebrating myself! Prepare to be sick of ME!

“And to all the youngsters outchea seeking direction, now is the time; DENRELE has something in store for everyone! Special thanks to @latashalagos for dragging me outta my Dental Appointment for this interview. Who could tell I was in severe pain whilst doing this chit-chat? NADA! Cos Denrele Culturally Appropri-ATE!”.
