The Blackwash team was at The Lennox Mall along Admiralty Way, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos last Saturday for a review session. We were surprised to meet Nigerian eccentric media personality, Denrele (real name Adenrele Oluwafemi Edun ). He was one of the celebrities that graced the launch of a product at Atmosphere Nite Club, also located in the expansive shopping mall.
While trying to keep my bag at the door for a photo session with him, he insisted on holding it for me. He cautioned that for safety reasons, it was better he held the bag while we took photographs with him.
Denrele was born in Hamburg, Germany, to a Yoruba father and an Indian-Mauritius mother. He is the only son and has two sisters. He grew up in Germany and came to Nigeria when he was five where he attended St Gregory’s College, Ikoyi and the University of Lagos.
The entertainment personality has bagged several awards, including The Best TV Personality at the NEAs in New York 2011, Dynamix Award for Best Youth TV Personality 2006/2007/2008, The Future Awards for Best Producer 2007.
Denrele has also interviewed many A-list celebrities, like multiple award-winning Akon, Beyonce, Knowles, Tyler Perry, Snoop Dogg, Cuba Gooding, Angela Bassett.
