A journalist and radio presenter by profession, Julie first stepped into the limelight launching the creative media house Don’t Trust The Internet in 2020. However, she has over a decade of experience as an entertainer working with mega-brands such as Apple, MTV, Nike, VICE, YouTube, and GRM Daily.
Thefader.com even labeled her as the “Most Trusted Voice In U.K. Music”. In an interview with them, Julie shared that at no stage did she “sit down and read a book about [DJing]”, rather her knowledge comes from watching her older brothers make their way to the top.

Overall, Julie deserved her hard-earned recognition. She shared that she wanted people to see, only what she wanted them to see. “Everything doesn’t have to be shared even though they might be the most important things in my life. Do you see Beyoncé’s Instagram? That’s how I want you guys to look at my career,” she added.
Julie Adenuga Husband, Boyfriend
If you follow Julie Adenuga over Twitter then you should be familiar with the jokes she often does about her boyfriend. Back in 2014, she tweeted,
“My boyfriend gave me an apple, my boyfriend gave me a pear, my boyfriend gave me a kiss on the lips then he threw me down the stairs! (flushed face emoji) WTF”
But she never revealed what was the reference all about.
Also, Julie joked that her boyfriend once asked her if she had life insurance.
Despite all the antics, Julie never revealed his name as of 2021. The only thing she let us know about him was that he had “very serious issues with lint.”
Also, judging by her posts, it didn’t seem like she had a husband then. In April 2020, she was sliding through her dating app, where she found out a fact — “All men on dating apps own dogs.”
Recalling one of her dates, Julie shared that she and her guy were on a bus in Palmers Green, and he started lying. He said that he knew Skepta and Jme, not knowing that she was their younger sister! Guess, they never went on a second date after.
