Nigeria’s craziest entertainer, Denrele Edun is 37 today and he can’t keep calm as he storms his social media pages with some creative pictures of himself to mark his birthday.
Denrele is a creative personality who crafted a brand from being weird and eccentric by doing what others would shy away which is dressing in ridiculous costumes everyday which is now part of his everyday life.
Denrele took to Instagram to share different creative and artistic photos of himself. He dressed as Jack Sparrow, a Ninja, an Angel and even went nude to use his body as a canvas.
See some of the photos and his caption below:
HAPPY 37TH BIRTHDAY TO ME; ADENRELE OLUFEMI ADEYEMI AKANBI SAMUEL (RAJEEV RAJA) EDUN.
There is only ONE of me and I stand vehemently to lend my VOICE through my ART and the
pragmatic use of my CRAFT to consciously and radically inspire generations, both behind
and before me.
Come with me into the indescribable WORLD of my potentiality. I am in the most rewarding
ERA of my CAREER yet, and I am very cognizant of the Universe’s role in moulding and
manifesting through and in me; I-am-not-your-regular-tom greatness .
I am glad and privileged to be a vessel unto honour – bear in mind that you mightn’t want to be in my shoes – what I have survived can devour you and your future to come.
Still I welcome you all into my realm where I ARTFULLY educate you on the journey which I began decades ago. I let my ART succinctly speak to your ever curious minds seeking validation.
I welcome you into my vibrations where my frequency speaks to you.
I PAINTED MY PAST AS THE FOUNDATION OF MY FUTURE.
I am my own canvas and as the ARTIST through supernatural guidance, utilize and create.
I AM THE ARTIST AND THE MUSE!

“Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean) is likable BECAUSE he is so charismatic. You know the type of people that are kind of an ass but you somehow still don’t find it in yourself to punch them in the nads? That’s DENRELE EDUN. HAPPY 37TH BIRTHDAY TO THE MOST FREE WILLED EXPRESSIVE BEING ALIVE; ADENRELE OLUFEMI ADEYEMI AKANBI SAMUEL (RAJEEV RAJA) EDUN. Captain Jack Sparrow is very passionate about his ship Black Pearl and feels that Black Pearl really stands for freedom. Which is why DENRELE keeps telling us that one should be passionate enough for what one really wants in life and should stand up and fight for it! CHANNELLING MY INNER CAPT JACK SPARROW!”
Fashion is truly PAIN; i stood still for over 7 hours whilst getting this masterpiece painted on my bare skin! And yes, In one exhibit, I interpret knowingly that in between my LEGS is an entrance to a world of unimaginable possibilities but I am immersed in my sense of self that I always choose to never settle for less –
I am not for your amusement, neither your fantasy!
I PAINTED MY PAST AS THE FOUNDATION OF MY FUTURE!
I was once in that picture, caught up in the Hustle of the Lagos metropolis, chasing after the golden dream. Jumping buses, fighting with conductors and drivers, shoved out of fast speeding buses because I looked a ‘certain kind of way’, ridiculed to the max, trampled upon consciously, trekked long walks till I ended up exhausted, walked the length of 3rd Mainland bridge because I had no transport fare after series of disappointing casting calls… Need I say more?
If you are not the HERO of your own story, then you are missing the whole point of your HUMANITY!
