Nigerian television presenter and model, born Adenrele Oluwafemi Edun, popularly called Denrele, says he is dying to get married, noting that he would not get married to someone who would try to change who and what he is.
The controversial showbiz character, whose alleged marriage plans was in the news last year, told the Punch that his marriage plans failed last year because the social media crippled it.
Recall that Denrele got the internet buzzing last year when he promised that he would be getting married soon.
He has however, assured that the original plan was still in place, stressing that the announcement was not a hoax and will never be.
According to him, “I will still get married, honestly, I was supposed to get married last year and I did not plan to publicise the whole affair.
“I intended to tell people few days to the day of the wedding so that they would come and find out who I was getting married to. But somehow, the news leaked and there was too much media hype around it.
“At a point, it began to look as if I fabricated the story to be in the news but it was the real deal for me. I am trying to pursue the matter but I am not going to say when it would happen.
“When it is time, people would get the invite but I would not blab. I am going to get married in Nigeria because I have realised over time that I am loved by all. I would not do a strictly VIP crowd because I would invite everybody who is interested in coming, they should come and watch me get married.”
Although he declined revealing the identity of the woman with whom he’ll be tieing the nuptial nuts, the model said, “My fiancée is not in the entertainment industry. She used to be in the industry but quit because she could not come to terms with the industry so she decided to do a regular 9-5 job.
“Relationship is all about communication, if anyone tries to change who I am, I would send the person back to her family house and collect my bride price back. It cannot happen because at the end of the day, we would be hungry at home and start looking at ourselves.
“Marriage would not change me. I know that there is that factor of staying true to one person which I am working on. I am getting there,” the 33-year-old added.
