Denrele Edun, the popular Nigerian media personality, has said his blood sister, sometimes, denies being related to him for reasons best known to her.
The popular TV host said this during a recent interview.
Denrele further revealed how his sister lost her job because the organization found out she is related to him.
He narrated how his sister got sacked from her workplace for being related to him stating that the school where she worked as a teacher yanked her off over fears of losing their students if their parents found out that one of their teachers was related to him.
“My sister recently lost her job because her employer found out she’s related to me,” said Denrele.
“This happened in a primary school. The head teacher called her to relieve her of her job with the reason that if parents find out that Denrele is her brother they will withdraw their wards from the school and this is something they cannot risk.”
Continuing, Denrele further said, “When she called me to tell me, I was saddened. Her knowledge, skills, and competencies were not in question. I felt so bad knowing that my name would ruin things for her and so, sometimes she denies knowing me,” he said.
Denrele recently turned 40 and he got a brand new car courtesy of his friends.
