Things seems not ending between Out of vogue actress Bisi Ibidapo Obe and Lola Alao with the latest response of Lola Alao towards Bisi’s allegation over her denied pregnancy by ex Reps member, Mr Dino Melaye
Bisi Ibidapo revealed to E24 magazine in an inteview that Lola Alao introduced her to the Ex-Reps member but later realized he is also dating him after the man has impregnated her.
Lola Alao responded through City People magazine. Her response reads thus:
‘Bisi should leave me out of her pregnancy mess. How can an adult like her not know who impregnated her? Is Bisi a small girl, that I Lola, will now carry and give Hon Dino to date? It is sad that she has dragged him into this mess. Is she the first actor or actress that Dino will help? Why is she making a deal out of meeting Dino? Dino has been my friend for years and was even at my movie premiere several month back where he donated N10million. I wish to state categorically that I have never dated Dino, I am not dating him and can never date him because he’s like a brother from another mother. It is quite unfortunate that Bisi is scandalizing Dino this way. Everything smacks of blackmail to me. Maybe she thinks since Dino donated N10million at my launch , she can scandalize him and make some money off him. I leave her to her conscience’.
Efforts are still going on to confirm from the duo.
Here is Bisi initial accusation in an interview with E24:
‘We started dating few months ago and he appeared to be a loving and nice guy to me. One thing led to another and we started a romantic relationship. Dino Melaye was a frequent visitor to my Magodo home in Lagos State Nigeria.
During the birthday party of Senator Bola Tinubu, I picked him up at the airport to my house. Few months later when I travelled to Canada, I felt some pregnancy symptoms, I did pregnancy test and it turned positive.
I put a call through to Dino Melaye to share the exciting news with him.
He sound really excited about my pregnancy. On returning to Nigeria, he took me to his hometown in Kabba, Kogi State Nigeria.
He told me he wanted to marry me. He was such a gentleman.
The romance heightened over time, they became closer than ever but somehow there was a dark cloud lurking in their stars. “Sometime in May, I went to London, came back and he called and said again that he actually wanted a big society wedding for me but since his parents are clerics and the rules and regulation of their church frowns at pregnant brides he would want me to get rid of the pregnancy. I was shocked. I wept uncontrollably all night.
“Later, I called him and told him since that’s his new position, I will advise him to go to his parents with another and marry. I’m not keen about society wedding but love to keep the pregnancy and have my baby. He did not allow me to say my mind when he dropped the phone. I called him severally but he refused to pick my calls. I sent emissaries, friends to him but he refused to listen.
“His complaint, according to my friends who took the courage to talk him was that I was rude. You can imagine, Dino refused to understand; he failed to know that I’m no longer a baby. This is my joy, joy unspeakable to me, something I have been praying for and he wanted me to be funny with it. It’s ridiculous,” she added.
Since June 2012, Bisi said, Dino never showed up. “He stopped picking my calls. But each time I tried to call him with another mobile number, he would pick the call but as soon as he finds out I’m the one on the phone he will drop it. I have not wronged Dino, I have only chosen to do what is right to me but he sees it differently. I’m no longer a kid.
“It’s painful that such action is coming from a man who claims he loves the masses, the oppressed people of this country and he is oppressing me. My fate is in the hands of God and He will see me through. I have not been working to earn any money but I have found favour before God and a couple of my friends. I know I’m not alone in this. God is with me.”
Asked if Lola Alao had intervened, Bisi said: “I spoke with her; I pleaded with her to talk to Dino. I was shocked when she told me that Dino said he was not responsible for the pregnancy. I took her up on this.
I asked her if she believed him. I found it insulting that at my age I wouldn’t know who is responsible for my pregnancy? But then, I’m not surprised because I have been fed with a lot of information that Lola and Dino are dating now.”
When Dino Melaye was contacted about the actress story he denied ever getting her pregnant. He described her claim as “African Magic story” and any thought that he would be the father of her baby as “an expression of fiction”.
Wonders shall never end.
