Popular Nigerian media personality, Denrele Edun has revealed his sister recently lost her job because she was related to him.
According to him, his sister who was a teacher in a primary school was sacked after the owner of the school discovered that she’s related to him.
He noted that the school terminated her appointment because they feared parents might withdraw their ward if they found out one of their teachers is related to him.
Denrele who made this revelation in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, revealed that after that incident his sister sometimes denies knowing him.
“My sister recently lost her job just because her employer found out she is related to me. This happened in a primary school. The head teacher 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.” He said
