In an interview on Lunch Time with Vanguard, the entertainer admitted to being “instrumental” in the show’s proceedings.
According to him, people who want to be on the show reach out to him to help them get selected and become contestants.
“I get a lot of nudes from people who want to go for BBNaija. I get all kinds of monetary offers.
“I have gotten N100m, N50m, N30m and I tell people go and do something reasonable with your money.
“So, let’s just say if you don’t have a Denrele in your life that can help you rediscover yourself or help you get to the next level and give you direction to help you navigate your way through life, then what are you looking for? Go and find a Denrele.
“Away from that, yes! I have been instrumental to a lot of these things. It is what it is.
“I’m at the industry’s centre of gravity. Let’s just say I know people in the right places, when they ask you, tell them to come and meet me.”
Denrele however noted that it all started when the winner of 2011 Big Brother Africa, Karen Igho, spoke about how he helped her to fill out her application form.
“It all started when my good friend, Karen Igho got into the house and was always saying ‘na Denrele help me fill my form’.”
When asked if his influence got anyone into the ongoing Big Brother Naija Season 7, Denrele said he has a lot of amazing people in the house and confirmed that more housemates will be joining the show
“Well! I have a lot of amazing people in the house and some that are still coming in.”
