Denrele Edun Reveals Troubling Details About His Family In Emotional Birthday Note to Her

Famous Nigerian cross dresser, Denrele Edun discloses some troubling details about his family in an open note he penned to his mum, Anita Dhunwantee Edun on her birthday.

First of all, we get to know that his mother is from Mauritius. Secondly, he revealed that he has never set his eyes on her since she left the shores of Nigeria, 18 years ago, after leaving under dire conditions.

In the heartfelt letter, he also thanked her for being by his father’s side even when he was out of job. He also spoke of how she never thought of running back to her own country even when they had to move to an uncompleted building with his relatives always on her neck.

He posted lovely pictures of her on Instagram as he shared his story below…


Haven’t seen you in 18 YEARS but you are the reason i’m a FIGHTER! Stumbled on your old Mauritius Passport today and it brought back memories of all the sacrifices you made for us all, especially ME.

As a Foreigner on the Nigerian soil, you never thought of running back to Mauritius and India with us kids even when our Dad was out of work (severally) and when you had to survive constant bickering and antagonizing fights with his relatives.

Even when we left our Duplex and moved to an uncompleted building and finally to the hellish cramped ONE ROOM in the family house, You found ways to provide even if it meant starving yourself. You instilled so much strength in me to carry our family along!

You never liked any of my girlfriends but I can forgive you now. You didn’t earn more than Papa (even when you secured work for him), but you sure worked a lot more. Juggling your job and looking after your family, I can image how at the end of each day, you always felt sore.

Don’t think that your efforts are going unnoticed, We all appreciate everything you do, We are always looking for ways to show our love, So that we can give back bit by bit, to you.

We know you don’t expect anything in return, For all the hard work you do for us and Papa, But I realize that it must take superhuman strength, To keep everyone happy and glad.

So today, we celebrate your life. A woman who is not just a wife and a mother, But a woman who is beautiful and so loving, That just being around her is one of life’s treasure!

My AMAZING MUM currently lives in Dublin, Ireland and even though it’s been over 18 years since she left the shores of Nigeria (on my insistence)…I’ve decided that our reunion would be my BIRTHDAY GIFT!
