Denrele Edun fell and fainted while on set in a new movie, Pepper Soup. However, the TV personality was to act a scene where he would fall and faint which he did make happen but it turned out to be an accident as he hit his forehead on a sharp object and got seriously injured.
When he regained consciousness, Denrele took to his Instagram handle to upload a picture of his bleeding forehead.

Narrating his ordeal, Denrele Edun said: “Denrele_edun, They say that true artists suffer for their craft but perhaps no artist has suffered like myself on this hustle of mine! All in a bid to make my acting more convincing, I was supposed to drop into a faint in the very first scene of the movie “PEPPER SOUP” but I guess I miscalculated and fell hard on a metallic object on the floor that pierced my face.”
He added that: “I kindda blacked out for a few seconds and felt something warm running down my face…Truth is, a blood vessel just a lil above my right eye (an inch away from my eyebrow bone) was burst open and it was hard to control the bleeding! The production team was stunned and scared at the same time. They almost called off the production but I refused! THE SHOW MUST GO ON! And I finished this job with all the grace, strength, resilience and amazing character interpretation that I could muster!”
Few months back, Denrele Edun got more than he bargained for when he whipped his hair on stage in his signature platform shoes. He was hosting Tres Bien Event in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, when he stomped on stage in nine-inch heels as he spun his red braids in the air. He got dangerously close to the edge of the stage then fell off.
