Nigerian media personality, Denrele Edun, has narrated how an 'influential man' demanded sexual pleasure from him during a red carpet event.
In a chat with HipTv, Denrele who spoke about his personal experiences in media event over the years, recalled his struggles as a crossdresser.
The 40-year-old stated that he once had the rare privilege to interview a notable figure at a red carpet event that he was asked to headline.
As usual, the entertainer claimed that he went in with his A-game but little did he know that he was in for a different kind of 'interview'.
“I was the red carpet headliner. When everyone was to be ushered in for the main event, I was interviewing people who came in late. An armed officer and two others called for me,” Denrele said.
“I was taken to an office and there was this influential personality sitting.
“I thought it would be amazing to catch an interview with them. He asked that I sit. I did. He asked for my name and very technical/intimate questions about the brand I worked for. I thought they were too overboard.
“He stood up and I thought we were going to do the interview outside. He said I should enter the car and I did. He asked if I was going to make him happy. I naively said yes, adding that I won’t be asking my usual funny questions.
“What he meant had yet to click for me. I asked if I could now call my cameraman. He said no. This person unzipped his fly and said, ‘make it go down’. That was when I understood. I said, ‘I’m sorry’.”
“I got the worst slap ever. It was like a flash and blur. I went dizzy. He screamed that I get out of his car. I got out of the car and sat on the floor, dazed. I had nobody to open up to. I couldn’t have gone to the office
Speaking on how he got over the experience, Denrele said he didn’t cower when the next time he met the pervert.
“I later ran into this person severally. He thought, if I saw him again, I would cower. But instead, I went straight to him and shook hands, laughed, and moved on. It’s always about taking back my personal power.”
