“This happened in a primary school. The head teacher called her to relieve her of her job with the reason that if parents find out that Denrele is her brother they will withdraw their wards from the school and this is something they cannot risk.”
Continuing, Denrele further said, “When she called me to tell me, I was saddened. Her knowledge, skills, and competencies were not in question. I felt so bad knowing that my name would ruin things for her and so, sometimes she denies knowing me,” he said.
Denrele recently turned 40 and he got a brand new car courtesy of his friends.
