‘We have our own Denrele Edun’ – Etcetera Says in New Article about Caitlyn Jenner




Former musician Etcetera is fast becoming quite the controversial writer with his weekly articles.

In his latest pieces he joins the many voices conversing about Caitlyn Jenner. He however brings his point of discussion to Nigeria, especially media personality Denrele Edun and veteran musician Charly Boy.

Read his post below.

*Please note that the post gets a bit graphic

And that’s how Bruce Jenner unveiled his new identity, leaving his male identity behind with Caitlyn. Trust Nigerians not to be left behind in the gossip and buzz it generated. A female radio presenter was like, “Oh my God,” so Bruce Jenner is now Caitlyn Jenner? What the hell is going on?”
Pleaseeeee, Nigerians should stop feigning surprise like they’ve not seen or heard anything like this before. You all should stop acting like we don’t have our own Denrele Edun. Mscheeeeeewwwww – is it because Bruce or Caitlyn (whatever she is called now) finally had enough balls to come out and say he is now a woman?
It’s just a matter of time, Denrele will be woman enough and do same thing and give us something new to talk about aside from his Nkechi-like hairdo. I don’t think it should even be in our news that Caitlyn Jenner is now a transgender. There are thousands of them in America. They infused the word in our vocabulary and it has become an umbrella term for people whose gender identity differs from the sex they were assigned by God. An American transgender described Caitlyn as the “Change” that America champions which is why America is always ahead of the rest of the world. Hahahahaha! Change indeed.
HELLO!!!! can someone tell that American transgender or transsexual or whatever she is that the slogan for the new government in Nigeria is “CHANGE?”

Lol, we’ve had Denrele since and we didn’t see him as change… Maybe someone should show her Denrele’s pictures so that she will be aware that Nigeria is catching up with them. Jesus Christ! Is this what being westernised is all about? Isn’t this madness? Isn’t that the term for those who enjoy dressing as the opposite sex? Or should we refer to Denrele as a cross-dresser for now until he finally plucks off his balls?
Does it look like Denrele will eventually pluck off his balls? Yes, eventually. It is just a matter of time. We are already used to his lipsticks, heels and Nkechi hairdo. And of course, he’s already been a poster “girl” for Nigerian magazines for as long as I can remember. The same poster girl that Bruce, oh sorry Caitlyn Jenner has dreamt of becoming since he/she was a child. Shit!!! – How do you write an article about Denrele and Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner if you keep identifying them by the wrong gender pronoun? Am I going to be saying “sorry” whenever I make mistakes like, “He looks hot,” or “she looks hot?”

The American system has made it impossible to mention Bruce and balls in the same sentence. Like Caitlyn Jenner, are we soon going to start using the V-word for Denrele and Charlie boy too? I pray we never get there. Our society doesn’t deserve such cruelty and madness. Denrele and Charlie Boy, for society’s sake, please keep your balls.. Lol…
Lawmakers, we need a little help here. Can you guys please give us something to stop Denrele, Uncle Charlie Boy or any other Nigerian from de-balling themselves now or anytime in the future? The lawmakers should do something about transgenders
That Bruce Jenner is no longer a man proves that America has gone mad. We shouldn’t allow the west to influence us wrongly. These guys have been the butt of jokes and the source of rumours and speculations for years, as their appearances became more feminine. They need our prayers now more than ever. As for Bruce Jenner, he needs Jesus. Without Jesus, he is hopeless—regardless of whether he struggles with gender identity or not.

Eternity is a small and rapidly decreasing number of heartbeats away and he will live in hell, as Bruce Jenner, not Caitlyn, for trillions of years (forever) in horrifying, unending torment, with a never-ending panic attack. The same goes for everyone who is reading this and has been chasing a different identity from that which God has given you. Hell is your future. You will live in terror. This is the truth.

      The truth is, only God has the power to condemn. God is love, He is also a judge(the part many people choose to overlook). He gave us ability to judge one another, and as Christ followers we are to stand on the truth firmly, harshly and speak it in boldness even if it angers some. The truth always will do that. Christ disciples were preaching the gospel in love but Paul was abrasive. Many of our parent love us but in it we get scolded, corrected, punished even beaten. And they are not smiling or babying is when they do that. Not bcos they are perfect but they are trying to impart smth in us. Whether we like it or not, HE will still judge us for our wrongdoing/sins. we are suppose to live a life pleasing in HIS sight. He also gave us chances to repent and turn away from our iniquities. If we don’t ask for forgiveness, don’t turn away from our sins, we reject CHRIST in our hearts, HE leaves us to a reprobate mind then hell fire is burning hot waiting for such people.

      I will like to say sin is sin but I also believe certain sin is greater than others. Just like in life, someone who stole gets less punishment than another person who took someone’s life. In our minds, we believe murder is far greater crime than
      stealing. Just like how people naturally get angry when a child gets raped or violently treated. I believe that’s how God feels and will judge, which connects to the Old Testament and certain people God favored and some he condemned harshly. Not bcos they were perfect but only HIM sees the deepest hearts. I wouldn’t say homosexuals, transgender will be judged harshly but don’t deceive yourself and think God is ok with your choices. He made you this way but you chose another way to prove what? HE made a mistake and you can do whatever you want. Imagine a child coming out and saying, he/she doesn’t want anything to do with his parent. He hates them so much and wants to change anything that reminds him/her of them. From last name to features. No parent will be happy about that. All I’m saying God is no punk, don’t treat HIM anyhow and expect to get away with it. CHRIST

      Sin is sin. It comes from Satan. God sees the HEART of man. And it is from there judgement is done. Therefore only God can judge. Humans are flawed in making judgment because we cannot see the HEART. Nobody but Bruce and God knows what it is like to walk in Bruce’s shoes. If Bruce, danrele, Charles boy want to dress like women, cut off their balls, how does that hurt anyone. I for one is happy the way I’ve been created and I feel blessed to be able rock my natural hair and go makeup free. Some can’t get out of the house without altering their appearance. It makes them happy. It doesn’t hurt anyone. People are Sooo busy pointing FIngers at other people’s deficiencies that they fail to see how blemished their souls are. Excetera your comment is religious it bears no resemblance to christ message of peace. You must have missed the whole meaning of Easter. It’s reslly sad.

      The argument of, don’t judge or it doesn’t hurt anyone is a foolish one. Every human judges, bcos we live in a world with different opinions, morals, beliefs, and there’s nothing absolutely wrong with it. Some will get on the wagon, others will go a different direction. Just bcos smth is not hurting anybody doesn’t mean we can’t speak up about what’s going on around us. We have every right to speak, it’s your own problem to agree or disagree.
      It’s like saying, as parent they should just remain silent bcos what their children do sometimes is not hurting them. Homosexuality, is a topic that every human will forever speak about, it’s not ever going to go away bcos it’s abnormal to have someone born this way only to announce yes, I’m the other way. It’s ludicrous, no matter how people want to justify it. There was a time every other day, somebody was announcing coming out of the closet. “I’m gay” was the trending statement. Now, it’s I’m transgender. It might not be as trending in the next couple of months bcos another thing will come again maybe beastiality will be the next trending lifestyle and topic to talk about. It’s all sensationalism.

      @Diddy, I agree with you 100%. My money is on Denrele. In tryna carve a NICHE for himself when no one gave him a chance, he decided to dress different. Dat does not make him the iiiiiiissssshh. I disagree with ETC on Denrele. I kinda like him there is dis craziness about him. He comes across like someone incapable of malice.

Is Bruce Jenner or Caitlyn a Nigerian? This is a case of mourning more than the bereaved. Search your conscience before you start trash talking the innocent.

      Paul the Apostle named and spoke against certain men: “Holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting this, some have made shipwreck of their faith, among whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme.” I Timothy 1: 19 – 20

    I feel so dirty after reading this article. what did denrele or charlie boy do to anybody for u to put them on blast like this.
    even tho I have some personal questions about transgenderism, if denrele or charlie boy decide to cut their balls off, how is it anybodys business.

    nigerian law makers should propose a law to fight transgenders because transgender is the biggest issue facing nigeria, not electricity or bad roads or poor health care or boko haram or kidnapping etc, No, its criminalizing and punishing innocent gay people and transgenders that should be our top priority in nigeria.

    etcetera pls take this your nasty article and shove it up your ass. mudaf*cker.

    June 6, 2015 at 1:02 pm

    Hahahahahahaha!!! OMG! Oh my f%cking goodness.
    Who the hell is this? Who the hell is this guy?
    Where do I even start?
    Okay, the intro begins by saying he is a former musician. Excuse me? What? I had never ever heard of this guy before 2 weeks ago or something. Isn’t he the guy that wrote some two-bit article about how women should be submissive? Is he even relevant? Did he ever have a hit song?
    He just sounds like a bitter, angry, confused, never-been (yes, he isn’t even worthy of being called a “has-been”), and he comes across as someone who is terribly envious of that Denrele guy. Why all the anger because people choose to LIVE THEIR OWN LIVES as they deem fit? Why all the close-mindedness in our society? Every single human being deserves to have freedom of choice and expression – as long as those choices are not detrimental to other people directly or indirectly.
    This half-wit of a guy says “our society doesn’t deserve such cruelty and madness”, please, is it right for a society to dictate how you want to live your life? Is it even right for anyone else to dictate how you want to live your own life? Because that’s the norm in most places today, does that make it right? Jesus, what is wrong with people?
    America has gone mad? If America is mad, then what do you call Nigeria? What do you call a country where greed, hatred, prejudice, mediocrity, corruption, lawlessness and pettiness are things which are generally accepted and even encouraged?
    What do we call a simple minded, hate-filled, wannabe-writer like you whose words are fuelled by the remnant bitterness from your failed music career?
    I had to Google this guy to even have an idea who he is, and to my surprise, he was such a nobody that even Wikipedia has no article on him. Pathetic.
    We shouldn’t allow the west to influence us negatively? Since when did advocating for equality and elimination of prejudice become a negative thing?
    If Caitlyn needs Jesus, then you need a brain.
    You talk all about God and how transgenders will rot in hell and suffer for their sins, yet, here you are engaging in hatred, discrimination and mockery – things which are considered sinful. Hypocrite, eh?
    Oh, Caitlyn is going to hell, so? Do you think your God is going to be impressed by your needless hatred and bigotry and give you a free pass into heaven? You think because you possess a gender identity that correlates with your outward appearance, that suddenly makes you a holy, perfect being that has the right to condemn people and pass bias judgments on them?
    You were a failed musician.
    You are a failed christian – or muslim – whatever you are.
    You are a failed writer (I cringe as I call you that).
    And most importantly, you a are failed human being.
    In summary, you are simply a desperate, bottom-of-the-barrel, sorry excuse for a person.

He even condemns them all to hell? All I can say is that I’m happy man will not be judge or jury on that day. Shock will catch you all who will make heaven and who won’t. How about you call on law makers to pass bills that actually benefit better your society? Hate won’t resurrect your career mister.

    Far as I know Jesus was all about Loving your nrighbour as yourself, do not judge, do on to others as you would like done onto yourself. The old testement was all about an eye for an eye. Thank God for christ. wonder if Hitler is in heaven. He preached about race segregation and also used the bible to support his belief. Heard of the mark of Cain. Please research. Slave dealers also used the bible to support their actions. They might be in heaven too. Dante says there is a special place in hell for a hypocrite. Excetera and Co should understand that WE ALL are beneficiaries of God’s grace through Christ. A bit of humility could help pave the way to heavens gate.

How lovely it must feel to point out faults in others it most make you feel Godlike abi , “prehaps you are exempt from that command maybe it is written in your version of the bible that you without Sin can judge trandgender and homo because their sin is GREATEST. Actually christ did give you guys without Sin permission to judge. However , Blasphemy and hypocrisy counts as a big fat sin.

    Beyond the judgment et cetera passed on transexuals without God’s permission, I have some basic social questions. If a Nigerian transgender male who has transitioned to a female wants to use the changing room at the swimming pool in a northern part of the country, would he use the male or female changing room? What if he was a person that all the women knew at the club growing up and he may have chased some of them and now he has found his second self, should the women be embarrassed or uncomfortable with a man who previously had special interest in them now butt naked in the same room with them? Can Bruce Jenner now go start naked with Kim, her sisters, North in a dressing room when his penis is removed? JUst curious because it is causing problems in the western world. What if one does not have the money to transition so you still look male but you want to use the female shower, changing or bathroom? Should it suffice for someone to just say I am no longer a certain gender to use the other gender’s facilities? How do you sieve the real people from pedophiles, rapists and perps who just want to use any means to access the other gender. This caused serious fight at my gym abroad. Na real issue dey here.

    *with correction* Beyond the judgment et cetera passed on transexuals without God’s permission, I have some basic social questions. If a Nigerian transgender male who has transitioned to a female wants to use the changing room at the swimming pool in a northern part of the country, would he use the male or female changing room? What if he was a person that all the women knew at the club growing up and he may have chased some of them and now he has found his second self, should the women be embarrassed or uncomfortable with a man who previously had special interest in them now butt naked in the same room with them? Can Bruce Jenner now go stark naked with Kim, her sisters, North in a dressing room when his penis is removed? JUst curious because it is causing problems in the western world. What if one does not have the money to transition so you still look male but you want to use the female shower, changing or bathroom? Should it suffice for someone to just say I am no longer a certain gender to use the other gender’s facilities?

    Oh wow, this is a brutal, in your face article… On the surprise factor in your article… I would say it s because this is something happening before our eyes. Yes, there are many transgender individuals in the world but “Caitlyn”, we’re familiar with… before our very eyes, he won gold in the men’s decathlon competition at the 1976 Olympics, became the Wheaties man, a motivational speaker and much loved staple on reality tv amongst other accomplishments then while we were still looking, became a woman… I guess that’s why the world really took notice.,

    While I don’t agree with some of et cetera’s articles, let us not become enemies of truth. I won’t comment on Denrele’s sexuality or Charly Boy’s, because at the end of the day, Denrele is likeable and talented.
    The issue here is that when people say something is bad, some of you will say they are judging. I don’t know when saying the truth became hating or judging. U may claim that changing one’s sex is not a sin because the Bible may not have spoken about it, but whether or not the Bible spoke about what Jenner has done, fact is, when you do what Jenner did, you’re indirectly telling God that He made a mistake by creating u as a man. And God makes no mistakes

      The truth yebo and the reality is that none of us has remain at our factory default settings. We were born with the ability to improve upon ourselves. Look what is around you. Man wasn’t born with wings but someone taught outside the box the box and invented the aeroplane. Someone invented a cure for myopia. So people born shortsighted can see normally. Someone invented IVF so people with fertility problems can conceive. Someone invented birth control and so on. Most of these inventors did not no one verse in the bible but have used their talents to improve life. No God did not make mistakes, man alone has hindered their creative ability. If Bruce, Charly boy and Co feel misrable with their gender why can’t they take advantage of technology and improve upon themselves?

    I love my gender and I am attracted to the opposite sex. I can only but imagine the pain and self loathing homosexuals and transgenders feel. To me it will be like forcing myself to have to marry a person of the same sex. It can’t be easy. No body in their right mind would wake up and suddenly decide to be homo or transgender. Their pain is massive. It is just sadistic and evil to undermind their struggles. Why kick a person who is already on the ground. Please it is not the christian thing to do. The bible says a lot about a lot of things. People need to stop cherry picking verses from the bible to support their opinion, because there is a verse in the bible to condemn every ones sin.

    there is no way religion can be kept out of any matter that have to do with humanity except you are an ape. You want religious beliefs kept completely out because that is the only way you can justify your wicked and reprobate mindset and satanized orientations. As many who is pleased with what the American man have done to himself, be it transgender or demongender you’re all lost, if you like you can hate my post just the way you have religious beliefs and God but at same time love son. You will reap what you have sowed both here and when miserably perish eventually you’ll rot in hell

    As much as I try to understand other people’s preferences and struggles I have to admit I’ve been having problems adjusting to Bruce’s ‘truth’. Why come out after 65 years? Why rise kids and why marry? I’m open minded but this right here is hard to digest. I’m guessing Bruce is not a Christian or a practicing Christian so I can’t judge him based on what he has chosen not to believe in but Bruce this is uncalled for. It actually takes the LGBT community back 50 years coz its seems to be a huge joke. I’m not gonna lose sleep over Caitlyn or Bruce coz ranting isn’t gonna pay my bills or anything. His change doesn’t affect me personally or affect the price of gari and fill my gas tank so na him sabi

    As for Etc, you have no respect. Is uncle Charlie your mate? You have and might never achieve 1/10 of what he has achieved and you’re here running your mouth? How dare you? Mr. Oputa has done humanitarian work and has spoken up for the down and oppressed in the society and continues to be a source of inspiration to countless of people and you come here to talk about him? So what if he like to look weird and dresses up in ways that affect your ‘godly’ senses? Has he hurt you in anyway? Why pick on Denrele? Does he not have the right to dress differently and express himself? Does the law not allow it? Why couldn’t you make your point without calling people out?

    I think you owe Denrele and Charlie Boy apologies.

    Shebi the last time BN posted one of this fellow’s articles, some of you vexing now called us ‘angry, frustrated spinsters’ for having an issue with the nonsense he wrote?

    Is it now clear that he’s a small minded cretin whose opinions shouldn’t see the light of day let alone be published on blogs such as BN?

    As for you Mr Etcetera you better go and sort out your failed music career and stop irritating us with your useless opinions on issues. Attacking Denrele and Charlie Boy under the guise of discussing Caitlyn Jenner is very stupid and you ought to be ashamed of yourself. Those 3 have more achievements in their smallest fingers than you have in your entire body, nonsense.

    BN if you like don’t post my comment.
