Veteran Nigerian media personality, Denrele Edun has disclosed how his sister was sacked from her place of work because she is related to him.
The eccentric television host and red carpet presenter shared this in a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo.
“My sister recently lost her job just because her employer found out she is related to me. This happened in a primary school. The headteacher randomly called her to let her go with the reason that if parents find out Denrele is your brother, they will withdraw their wards from the school, and it is something I cannot risk.
When she called to tell me, I was saddened. Her knowledge, skills and competencies were not in question, just the simple reason of being related to me. I felt so bad that my name would ruin things for her, and so sometimes she even denies knowing me.”
