Five years ago he didn’t want to give any comments about the photo of him and Charly Boy kissing. Back then everybody was sure that they were gay but for others it was hard to believe that the explanation is that simple.
It turned out that the reason why they were kissing was a scene from the movie they were trying to shoot! Why did Charly and Denrele kiss become so viral? What was so special about the movie they were shooting?
The film two Nigerian celebrities were making was about people from different generations who however had similar problems and similar features. One of the shots captures them as a father and his son.
According to the words of Edun, Charly just kissed him at that moment. It wasn’t a romantic thing or anything like that – just a joke that everyone perceived as reality.
Denrele laughs that they didn’t even notice when the picture of their kiss became so popular. They were the only topic of people’s discussion! Their fans were really shocked and thought that Charly and Edun were really dating.
Even though both of them are really spontaneous and bright personalities it was still hard to believe that two celebrities turned out to be gay.
The full name of the Nigerian TV presenter is Adenrele Oluwafemi Edun. He was born in 1983. Right now he works for Channel O but before that he also presented for Soundcity.
It might be a surprising fact for you that Denrele was born in Germany. His mother was Indian and his dad was Yoruba. He is not the only child in the family – he has two sisters.
He spent most of his childhood in Hamburg but his family moved to Nigeria when he was five. Denrele attended several colleges such as St Gregory's College, the University of Lagos and Ikoyi.

The life of this Nigerian celebrity is full of mysteries! He was born in catholic family and his father was a judge. The person who introduced him to music was his cousin Dr. Alban whom he really respected and appreciated.
For some reason Charly Boy didn’t want to talk about his age! He wanted it to remain a secret which was confusing for a lot of people and especially his fans.
Nobody knows why he avoided this topic but it surely made him look like man who has secrets! That’s why people wouldn’t stop talking about him.
However, in 2011 he decided that it was time to reveal the truth and claimed that he turned 60. But 2 years later he said he was 63 which was just impossible.
Therefore, we still don’t know why he is hiding this information and whether he is ever going to tell the truth. As for his relationship with the parents, he says that they supported him and loved him.
However, as most Nigerians back then, they were conservative so he was constantly watched and not allowed to do a lot of stuff.
At first he also wanted to become a lawyer to follow the career path of his dad but later changed his mind and majored in communications.
Music of Charly Boy
His debut album was released in 1982. He wasn’t a professional musician back then so it wasn’t that successful. What is more, he didn’t seem like an interesting person to any of the producers.
Therefore, it was hard for him to find a sponsor and a person who would support him. But in 1985 his other album became quite popular. But the real success came to him in the 1990s.
In his songs he mentioned a lot of topics that were really important for Nigerians back then. He would openly say that there are issues like corruption in the contemporary society.
After his success in the 90s Charly Boy continued his career and recorded few other albums. Nigerian singer worked together with his cousin and some other famous people.
Few of his most famous songs include "Carolina", "Work Work Africa" and others. Despite his age, Charly Boy is still popular in Nigeria and nearly everyone knows his name.
