In an attempt to celebrate his many years in the industry Denrele took some of his followers down memory lane with this throwback image yesterday while talking about his trials and tribulations in the industry.
Via @denrele_edun – This shot is almost 20 YEARS OLD! Throwback to 1999/2000 when @sholacreativestudios in Surulere was every models solace, learning field and prerequisite for apt discovery! If your picture never made it up on his “Wall Of Modelling Fame” , then you needed a Mannequin reshuffle!
This throwback shot is to the exquisitely beautiful model with me; the Intelligent @titithedynamite who stole my heart in my adolescent years! We listened to d same kinda music, read the same kinda books, jumped all the buses for every single casting in town, argued over the silliest things and yes, we even had a choreographed dance routine for all the clubs especially 11:45 in Ikoyi!
See the shirt I gat on? She bought it for me. Twas bout 2k or so but then I had just 3 shirts and 4 jeans so it was truly a welcome addition to my meagre wardrobe. We fought about this but she eventually had her way and got it for me. And so we trekked to Surulere (from Alagomeji, Yaba) and took this shot at Shola’s studio. Plus I actually tore out the “Tommy Hilfiger” logo from a model’s shirt (hanging in the changing room) and quickly pinned it on to my boxers….Do have a good laff on me!
Long story cut short; Never despise humble beginnings! And don’t EVER forget your Day1’s
