“I give my parents all the respect in the world because they allowed me to be who I really want to be.

"There was an aunt of mine who used to come from Port Harcourt and cry, telling my parents to be careful so that I would not end up in a psychiatric home because of my style of fashion and entertainment.

"Some of my cousins even used to say I was embarrassing the family," he revealed.



Derenle also said that because people were beginning to accept him, some very ‘influential people’ had even called him to mentor their children.

“I don’t take myself serious and the first time I ever teased people about giving birth to a child like me was during the first AMVCA and the response I got made me happy.

"The funny thing is that a lot of people want me to mentor their children.

"Someone very influential called me recently and told me her children who just came to Nigeria from the United States wanted to meet me. My audience base cuts across all demography.

“If my children want to follow this path of entertainment, I will encourage them because when I was normal, I didn’t have money; now my madness has become a source of income. I am very fortunate to have come from a family like mine” he said.
