Nollywood actress, Biodun Okeowo has denied the allegations that she snatched Dino Melaye from her colleague, Iyabo Ojo.
According to the mother of two, she innocently took pictures with the former Senator at an event where they both met and shared on her Instagram page and that’s what people have been using to claim that she is in a relationship with Melaye.
This is in light of the viral voice note alleged to be Iyabo Ojo telling Dino Melaye to stop speaking bad about her to his new women, Biodun Okeowo and Kayanmata vendor Miwa posted by Instagram blogger, Gist lover.
Okeowo has now written a lengthy disclaimer disassociating herself from the allegations. It reads:
“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 a colleague and being in a romantic relationship with him.
Considering my current engagement with my business 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 where we took photographs together just as I did with other guests and dignitaries at the party. Thereafter, I posted on my IG handle. 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 Dino 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 Omoborty Nation, I will never let you down. For now, my focus is on my kids, my man, business 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. One Love!!!”
