In a joyous mood, Denrele is counting down to celebrating three decades in the entertainment Industry in May 2024.

 
Popular media personality Denrele Edun has revealed that people spread rumour that he was HIV positive.
 
According to the star, many even ridiculed and body shamed him with the wrongest choice of words.
 
He stated this in a social media post while recalling his encounter with the wife of a famous DJ.
  
Speaking on the DJ’s wife saga, Denrele Edun recounted the distressing encounter where his designer was forbidden from styling him and from allowing him to come near her children because she believed he had HIV, noting how the media personality at the time looked skinny and she assumed he had a disease.
 
Following his interview at Arise News, he penned a note to self, noting how he has been labeled several names such as Malnourished, HIV positive and he is happy with his new weight and how far he has come.
 
He wrote: “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!
