This Denrele Sef

share on:

I have avoided writing about this guy forever. But as I write, I am watching him on the Africa Magic Award show pretending to be Ryan Seacrest. The guy is decked out in a slid back blonde hair, military looking outfit, finding it very hard to control himself. His talent is unquestionable and his self confidence is huge.

The man has defied all logic. That I am crazy about him cannot be contested, even though I will kill my son if he as much as tries to emulate his shoes talk less of his style.  Where do I box Denrele, I really don’t know.

His madness intrigues me. His effeminate look is also funny and the way he walks around with his spindly legs on those high shoes making you hold your breathe and wait for that fall that never comes.

I like the fact that unlike the rest, he does not put on any fake accent. His Yoruba heritage comes out each time he opens his mouth. I like the guy, but won’t let my sister or daughter near am. I wonder how his parents must have felt when the wacko style started evolving.

Denrele is so much like me.  He is a maverick, in his own world and has completely shut out the unapproving public, thereby earning the respect of not only very key people in the industry but also inmates at the Yaba Psychiatry.

He once interviewed me at the ill-fated Fund raiser organised by the Stock Exchange for The Obama campaign. He walked up to me and expressed his desire to interview me as a result of my looks.  You know say I fine small, the Denzel Washington kind of fine. I agreed and he interviewed me and took my numbers ostensibly to call me to inform me as to when the
Programme will come up. I no hear from am again o, the next thing was seeing him kissing Charlyboy.

As I watch, denrele reminds me of an old and withered white woman. The ones that usually ask you for help to cross the street. The man yellow pass yellow fever. I look forward to his old age, would he continue with this style in his old age or would he tone down and walk around with only pant?

My advise to him is to start touring our secondary schools, except my pikin school., he should assist our parents in moulding their kids, cos his own act is the perfect example for una children to emulate. Charly boy has really succeeded in showing us just how powerful his message is.  Only one person- Denrele copy him style out of 170m people in this our country.

Well, me I need to see him girlfriend, I have a lot of questions I want ask. Questions pertaining to size and girth. LOL

  1. You know, Me. Edgar J, you really need to get over yourself already. Really. I read that tiresome and thoroughly misguided article you wrote about the Arowolo case and was so disappointed. Here’s a newsflash for you – Denrele doesn'( care whether you like him or not (apparently, YOU can”t even decide whether you like him or not). Denrele is beautiful, unique and talented. He is NOT your expectation of him. So please put that in your pipe and smoke it!

  2. Ayana, you need to understand literary depth- he be like say na free school
    You go- this articlle is steeped in sarcasm with an underlying and deep respect for denrele. But as you be near illiterate you no go see am. You thoroughly expose yourself by mentioning the arowolo article. That was my most serious article to date. If na denrele send you, he made a stupid choice. Wink

  3. Lovely and we’ll balanced article on denrele. He is a art treasure. He and charley Boy should have been given centenary award.

  4. Hmmmm. You guys are talking about Denwere and not Aderenle Edun. He is the best guy I have even known. I am not his girlfriend (don’t ask me) but his very good and loyal friend. My son will do more than Denwere. Good article. Mind you, the kiss with Charlyboy is photoshop eve the blind can tell you. Not well placed. It’s a strategy. I love that.
