    Lmaooooo. Denrele looking FIERCE!!!
    Denrele is simply living his life. You people should leave him alone, ah.

    Although at one point, Denrele was insisting he wasn’t gay, and also said he was getting married to a WOMAN soon. I was like “who’s this one deceiving?”

    I’m just glad he’s being true to himself now.

      Yes, true. It’s just noise. The real LGBTQ issues aren’t being addressed, and he probably won’t ever address them.
      I still sense a kind of fear in him. Tomorrow he can always say “it’s all a stunt”, but if he should step out of himself to actually tackle LGBTQ issues there’d be no way to avoid the backlash. THAT is Denrele’s fear.

      Thats easy to say from the safety of your laptop screen. Not so easy when 14yrs imprisonment is being brandished in front of u.

      But u are right, somehow we have to start engaging the public in the sexuality discourse. Perhaps this is Denrele’s way of saying its ok to be “different”

    That second tweet too…the one where the tweep is comparing reactions to Denrele and Caitlyn Jenner. Well, its simple really. Denrele is clearly doing this for show, to rile Nigerians. Caitlyn Jenner actually CAME OUT. So pardon some people for lashing out at him. Granted, if he decided to come out as transgender or something tomorrow, there’d still be backlash. But then there’d also be people who would commiserate and applaud him for bravery. This just doesn’t compare with the Caitlyn Jenner situation abeg.

    Oh my Denny, Oh Denny, how brave thou art. How bold you look, and how smart you are to get such an attention without trying so hard. Just a few theatrics- high heels, long braids, tight pants, colourful make-up, and a mopstick for a microphone. Dildo would have been better. Or better still, Charly Boy’s dick.

    Nevertheless, you got the attention. Whether they like it or not, you must trend and we’d applaud you. But who would be there when homophobes would come sniffing up your ass, trying to get a chance to lynch you. Oh my Denny. Receive sense. I love you though, but this is Nigeria. Effeminity means gayness here and even though you haven’t come out, you are here.

    This one is even little, compared to what was on his instagram page. One even said STD is written all over denrele. People and bad mouth.

    DM, he’s already controversial for cross dressing, and you guys want him to also be a gay activist? Haba!

    His cross dressing alone is enough activing.

    Nigerians should go face their life issues nd leave Derenle alone! Dude is living his life, raking in d cash nd you ppl r there lamenting nd bringing up useless hashtags! His price for shows just went seven notches higher! And yels, he sure can take your man i.e. If he hasn’t taken him already! Nansense!

    By the way, the ass on him though…….. For somebody so skinny, that ass is so well defined! And that arc……… **Stares sadly @ my flat posterior** Chai! God, its not fair oh! Money, I know get! Fame nko, mba! Ordinary ass, am rocking a fat bottom flask! And ppl wee now tell me you r not partial!

    Adeola where u at, come see ur home grown DRQ!

    I personally think Mr Edun is playing his cards right by not picking a side. He is playing a game of fill in the gap, giving society the chance to add 2 plus 2 together and slowly get use to the idea of who he is and what he is about. Have u noticed how he has transitioned over the years? Once we get use to one level of outlandishness, home boy amps it up and takes it to another level.

    Lets face it, no one would be shocked at this point if pix of him married to a man surfaces, or if he becomes a transgender tomorrow. Its all about slowly feeding the public and allowing them get use to you, instead of hitting them and hitting them hard. There have been stories of family and friends knowing someone is gay, but waiting for them to come out after they have made peace with it on their own terms. That’s what U and I as Nigerians and the rest of the world is waiting for at this point from this dude. I for one, wasn’t shocked when Bruce transformed into Caitlyn. If u have been following KUWTK, you would have seen it coming. He might not be speaking on or addressing LGBTQI issues directly, but he is creating that visibility, that sense of awareness that we always talk about. The same one the Onyx guy is doing in his own little corner. We can gauge reaction from feedback he is getting, ppl know u can loose ur man to him, ppl know ur child can see him as a role model, ppl know he has clearly moved from being a man. Ppl aren’t sleeping u know, they are keeping and eye on him. Who keeps better tabs on you than ur haters? #TryingToCatchYouRidingDirty

    One road doesn’t lead to a market, everybody is charting their different course to the same destination. It’s not always about HOW the job gets done, but about getting the job DONE!

      Thanks for all the sense you made there.Thought I was the only one seeing what the guy is up to.Our society is still too conservative to have LGBT activism dumped on it in so frontal a manner as some folks would like,this frog-in-the-beaker method is best.
      These days people now talk of gay issues,when they come up,without dripping so much venom as is their wont.More people becoming more accepting,thanks to characters like Denrele and their antics

    Actually I thought this particular stunt of his was annoying and uncalled for. Sometimes I partly blame him for the ridicule & hate the LGBT receives here in Nigerian. Just because IMO, He makes such a mockery of the gay community at large. Drag / Cross dressing and even Trans are all legitimate forms of expression and there are ppl who are passionate abt and have become distinguished through it. If he wants to be any one of those then he should do so, commit properly to it, and stop making a buffoonery of not just himself but an entire lifestyle that is deserving of respect.

    Here’s a man that has the platform and the opportunity to pioneer change and represent Nigerian’s LGBT in good light but he continues to play the clown on the internet

      I sincerely think denrele should be applauded.
      Above anything else, he is making people talk … opening up conversations about sexuality and all the different forms it might present itself.

        No talk is better than Negative talk if you ask me. hes getting people to talk quite alright, but people are getting more flared up. if i wasnt gay myself, i think i would have been pissed by Denrele and all his shinanigans.

        its cute when people young like Onxy do it, but when Old people engage in this whole ‘Denrele act’ it just gives a sour taste.

    Aunty needs to tone it down a bit.. she isn’t even portraying all gay people in the right light. Next time you tell your friend or Neighbor you are gay, Think about it, the picture that comes to mind, is you behave like Derenle maybe not openly yet. Denrele is a Cross dresser to a large extent and he has openly shown that which i applaud but as he really openly shown anything to support the facts he is gay? No? being a cross dresser is totally different from being a gay at least so a large extent, they are exclusive of each-other.
    what Denrele as only done is to successfully confuse str8 folks perception (including gay peoples) about who an average gay person really is, how they look or act.

    Aunty Well done!

    by the way shes a Frnd but i don’t Kiss-Ass.

    I agree with most comments here which are on both sides of the divide. But I agree most with Chizzy’s. LGBT issues isn’t something to play clown with. In a way, even though people are now talking about gay people more, Denrele is making gay people look crazy and silly because of our highly conservative attitude here in Nigeria. There are many things that “men” aren’t supposed to do in this country. And for people with that kind of orientation, wearing sky high strapped sandals and skinny jeans while weilding a mop stick and doning knee length braids is only gonna fuel their prejudice for gay people. I know what he’s doing and I applaud him for it, but I’m not sure it’s the right thing, or rather the best thing for Nigerians right now.
