The actor in a chat with Guardian Life magazine talks about how he started in the industry, marriage plans and more.
On why his plan to marry his love ‘Yvonne’ failed,
“They said there would be a lot of terms and conditions, that I would have to behave a certain kind of way. I thought about it but when I was “normal”, I didn’t have money, if I am broke how will I pay bride price…the girl and I are still friends.”
Speaking about how it all started,
“I was the underdog and the least paid when I started working…I worked my ass off and the next thing I knew everybody was asking for Denrele, I had to be on every red carpet and every show. When I got to interview Beyonce in 2006 I was earning 45k and they started paying me 200k, my journey with Sound City began.”
On the challenges that come with his style,
“When I didn’t have a car, conductors would push me out of the buses and they would shout about a mad man on the loose when I was in Unilag people used to stone me with pure water…. I remember going home to cry, it wasn’t just the choir, they told me to stop coming to church, it was difficult.”
