The media personality Denrele Edun claims that many young people tried to persuade him to join the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show.
Karen Igho, the eventual winner of that season, revealed that the transgender had assisted her with her application, Edun gained notoriety as an easy way to appear on the reality show in 2012.
Speaking on Lunch Date, Edun claimed that people who are trying to get on the reality show send him nude and cash offers worth between N100 million and N30 million.
“I get a lot of nudes from people who want to go for BBNaija. I get all kinds of monetary offers, I have gotten N100m, N50m, N30m and I tell people go and do something reasonable with your money,” he said.
“So, let’s just say if you don’t have a Denrele in your life that can help you rediscover yourself or help you get to the next level and give you direction to help you navigate your way through life, then what are you looking for? Go and find a Denrele.
“I have been instrumental to a lot of these things. It is what it is, I’m at the industry’s center of gravity, let’s just say I know people in the right places, when they ask you ask you tell them to come and meet me.
“It all started when my good friend, Karen Igho got into the house and was always saying na Denrele help me fill my form.”
