Actress Biodun Okeowo a.k.a Omoborty has debunked claims of being in a romantic relationship with former lawmaker, Dino Melaye.
The actress who recounted how she met the former lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District at the national assembly in 2017, said she never knew the photo she shared thereafter will give rumour mongers a field day to spread lies and unfounded allegations against her.
Insisting that she is not in any amorous relationship/entanglement with Dino Melaye, Omoborty added that it is shocking to hear about insinuations of snatching Dino Melaye from my colleague and being in a romantic relationship with him.
Few days ago my attention was drawn to an audio recording circulating on social media which I also listened to myself, purportedly accusing me of being romantically involved with Dino Melaye. It was shocking to hear about insinuations of snatching him from my colleague and being in a romantic relationship with him.
Considering my current engagement with my businesses and acting career, I ordinarily would have ignored and keep mute about it. But I decided against such action as my silence would seemingly and inadvertently give it a semblance of truth…as silence is termed to mean consent.
I met Dino Melaye at a certain wedding ceremony in 2017 where we took photographs together just as I did with other guests and dignitaries at the party. Thereafter, I posted on my Instagram. Unknown to me posting a picture of myself and Dino only gave rumour mongers a field day to spread lies and unfounded allegations against me that I’m dating this particular man.
I unequivocally state and reaffirm that I am not and was never in any amorous relationship with him and neither am I in any form of entanglement with him.
I will appreciate it, if this settles any misconception, assumptions, innuendos and falsehood about my alleged relationship with Dino Melaye. At this point I will like to state explicitly that I am certainly not involved in any form of relationship with him whatsoever.
To all my BORTY Nations, I will never let you down. For now, my focus is on my kids, my man, my businesses and my acting career. I have set my face like a flint on that path. Thank you to all who reached out to me and believed in me.
