Award winning celebrity doctor, Maymuna Kadiri has this to say about Derenle Edun, who many have accused of constantly being ‘high’ on only God knows what. hehe
As a Physician in private practice, it was pertinent and very necessary I had to acquire business management skills.
With this in mind, I became a google rat and this got me to Enterprise Development Center of Pan Atlantic University.
Almost throughout my school days, a particular young man named Denrele Edun became my unofficial client/patient. Over 90% of the students including some facilitators believed he was a #sick, #crazy, #psycho #mad man. He was constantly used as a case study to explain the business in the entertainment industry.
Thinking this was the end, I proceeded to China European International Business School and it was the same story. At this juncture, I stopped explaining to people to stop the labelling and stigma because all fell on deaf ears.
Fast forward, our organization (@pinnaclemedng, Pinnacle Medical Services) decided to campaign and increase the awareness on mental health by creating documentaries to depict this Societal menace.
Our first script came through and was named #peppersoup. The producer and I decided to look for the right person who will really showcase this character and ….Denrele Edun came to mind. I’m sure you are also thinking what I’m thinking….Denrele is already a mad man na…so, why him.
We prayed that he will accept the role and make himself available for the shooting. Lo and behold, Grace Edwin Oboba, our beautiful producer sent him the script and then…..the BIG NEWS!!! Denrele did not only accept the script, but fell in love with it…for the following reasons below….
1. Denrele doesn’t smoke cigarette or other psychoactive substances.
2. He also doesn’t drink alcohol.
3. But he loves to drink #peppersoup
