Former member of the House of Representatives, Dino Melaye, has dismissed claims by actress Bisi Ibidapo-Obe that he’s the father of her child, saying it is an “Africa Magic story”.
The actress, who gave an interview to E24-7 magazine confirmed that the former lawmaker was the father of the child she was expecting, a statement Melaye termed “an expression of fiction.”
According to Bisi Ibidapo-Obe, she was introduced to Melaye by fellow actress Lola Alao, and over time they became an item. It was while she was on a trip to Canada that she found out she was pregnant, claiming she called Melaye in Nigeria and he was excited about it. She also added that when she got back, Mr Melaye proposed to her.
The actress said the bad times began shortly after, when the lawmaker asked her to have an abortion under the excuse that his church frowned on pregnant brides. Since then, she said she’s lost contact with Melaye.
When asked if she had talked to the matchmaker Lola Alao, she said, “I spoke with her…. I was shocked when she told me that Dino said he wasn’t responsible for the pregnancy… I found it insulting… But then I’m not surprised because I have been fed a lot of information that Lola and Dino are dating now.”
Bisi Ibidapo-Obe is expected to leave the country soon to deliver the baby.
