Nigerian TV personality and fashion icon, Adenrele Oluwafemi Edun, popularly known as Denrele Edun has said that he’s not interested in marriage since no woman has been able to reciprocate the measure of love he gives.
Speaking in an interview, the award-winning TV personality who will be 40 in few weeks, pointed out that his sexual life is very active, adding “I am dating myself and not interested in marriage.”
According to him, all he wants is to be himself and would rather stay single than get married and be unhappy.
Denrele also revealed that his mother once bought him a diamond ring to ensure he finds a girl, propose to her and eventually settle down.
He said; “I am not interested in the institution called marriage. I can say this because I am in control of my decisions. I set my principles, follow my guiding philosophies and do only what I want to do. I have not been lucky with love. I give out a lot of love but I do not get the same measure back. It is very hard to find people who genuinely reciprocate the kind of love I give.
“I know people will question my sexuality because we live in a society where people are constantly under pressure and different forms of discrimination. Recently, I saw a story claiming that I was in a relationship with a male artiste but I don’t react to such claims anymore. I have sacrificed a lot to take care of my family. I have been shouldering responsibilities since I was 11 years old.”
Denrele further revealed that he once dated someone he was ready to give up the entertainment industry for.
He said; “I was so obsessed with her but she said it would be unfair to take that from me. Now, I have discovered inner happiness and peace of mind because God has used me to break the chains of poverty in my family. I will be hard on myself if I say I am not fulfilled or satisfied.”
