STAR actress, Bisi Ibidapo-Obe, otherwise known as Omo logbalogba has rubbished the social media report that ex-House of Representatives member, Hon. Dino Melaye, the alleged father of her lovely daughter, Destiny Abayomi Oluwajomiloju, has begged to claim paternity of the baby he earlier rejected.  She added that it’s just mere fiction as nothing like that transpired between her and the controversial politician.

Speaking with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Wednesday, September 11, 2013, the Ilesa, Osun born filmmaker expressed total disappointment in those peddling the rumour, pleading to be left alone at the moment.  “I am disappointed to be hearing that.  A lot of people had called me on it. But I wonder where those behind it got their information.  Absolutely, there is nothing like that.  You better ignore them, let them continue posting rubbish.  I am busier than attending to such issues now.  Right now, I am in Canada.  When I am back, we will talk better on issues concerning my career.  That’s what I am concentrating on now.

“I am okay, my daughter is also okay.  I am more concerned about the welfare and proper upbringing of my child, and I will appreciate it if the media will support my career, rather than publishing false stories about me.  I wish to be left out of any controversy so as to be able to build my career and take good care of my daughter.”

ENCOMIUM Weekly’s efforts to get Melaye’s reaction on the story proved abortive as all the calls put through his mobile phone were ignored.  We also sent him a text message, but that was equally not replied till we went to press.

The talented thespian was delivered of the beautiful girl on Friday, November 30, 2012, amid heavy controversy, which has put the paternity of the baby in doubt till date.

However, the famous role interpreter dared Melaye by naming her daughter after him.  This further stirred the contention between the Kogi born activist and the famous entertainer as the former labeled the latter a blatant liar whose intension was only to cause confusion in his family.

The action of Melaye was considered dubious by Omo logbalogba. This informed her threat to opt for a DNA test to confirm her child’s paternity.  The move was later dropped, allegedly on her parents’ advice, hoping that when the little girl grows up, she will surely know her biological father.

But when the social media was agog with news that Melaye has begged Ibidapo Obe secretly to claim Destiny Abayomi, tongues have started wagging and nagging within and outside the industry that the top Yoruba actress has finally conquered the battle of her life. Not until ENCOMIUM Weekly spoke to her, and she denied knowing anything about the report.
