Nigerian Entertainer and University of Lagos graduate, Denrele Edun is 37 years old today and has already shared some lovely photos to mark the special day.
The illustration he drew on his bit he said was a reflection of his past.
He wrote “HAPPY 37TH BIRTHDAY TO ME; ADENRELE OLUFEMI ADEYEMI AKANBI SAMUEL (RAJEEV RAJA) EDUN.
Sound Check; I stood for 7 HOURS to get this done, in my malaria weak state..Who send me message? (I’m better now, tho)! Reality Check; I know what you’ve seen and heard about LAGOS: what you think is happening, what you think she needs, what you think she is!
The four things that come to mind when people think of LAGOS are: Population, Problems, Poverty and Promises Unfulfilled.
But that’s not the whole story!
MY LAGOS (as ARTFULLY painted on me) shows you something different. We HUSTLE, we find ways to overcome, We SURVIVE.
Everyday we are changing our communities, it may be a process and it may be a little bit at a time But we are changing it nonetheless.
MY STORY is real; Most of my subjects will INSPIRE, others will PROVOKE, but each story of MINE will challenge what you thought you knew about me and reintroduce ME in my LAGOS to you!
I AM A JUMPSTARTER, A SHOW STOPPER AND A LIVING LEGACY!”
