Media personality Denrele Edun Reveals Why He Keeps Visiting Goldie’s Grave 7 Years After Her Death.
Nigeria media personality , Denrele Edun has talked about why he keeps visiting Goldie’s grave some seven years after her death.
Singer Goldie Harvey died in 2013 after her trip back from the Grammy awards in Los Angeles, the media personality Denrele Edun who happens to be her friend has been visiting her grave on Valentine’s Day, which is the anniversary of her death. While some have commended his commitment to his deceased friend, others insinuated that he was doing it for publicity sake.
Denerela said his visits to her grave was his own ways of keeping her memory alive.
Read what he said below:
“I go there every year and I can authoritatively say that I have been the one going there for the past seven years. It is not about going there because I want to get attention or I want to be in the news. No, it is my own little way of protecting my friend’s legacy and making people remember her. I am not going to come up with a controversial agenda.
“It is my little way of letting people remember that there was once a Goldie, there still is a Goldie and there will forever be a Goldie.
Anytime I do that, people remember her. Some stations play her music and it might just be for that day but somehow, she is remembered, appreciated and loved on Valentine’s Day.
No matter my schedule, I make sure I visit her grave every Valentine’s Day. It is so weird because the guards at the grave usually expect me. That is the only way I can communicate with her.”
The former television presenter also maintained that he would continue visiting Goldie’s grave until he got a revelation to do otherwise.
Denrele, who recently shared his experience with the husband of a friend who said he didn’t like him, insisted that things like that did not get to him.
He further said:
“It is different when people tell you they don’t like you upfront, so you already know what you are dealing with. I can take open confrontation but when it comes from the action (of the person), I am a very strong-minded individual.
As humans, we try to decipher what warranted such behaviour from someone who doesn’t know one’s story and it is not reciprocal because one doesn’t hate that person. I feel everyone is entitled to their views.
You know my name not my story. You don’t know what I have been through. I like good energy. I am a positive-minded person and I don’t want to cross paths with these people. Honestly, I am not bothered.”
