Nollywood actress Biodun Okeowo Sofuyi, popularly known as Omoborty has also debunked the rumours that she is dating former Kogi West lawmaker, Dino Melaye, stating how she felt to her to hear such insinuations.
Recall that KOKO TV reported that Dino Melaye had also taken to social media to falsify the reports that he is in a love triangle with actresses Iyabo Ojo and Omoborty.
Taking to her Instagram page, Omoborty said it was shocking to hear insinuations that she snatched Dino from her colleague, Iyabo Ojo and started playing cupid with the politician. Stating that she would have originally stayed silent on the matter considering her current engagement in her business and career in the Nigerian movie industry, Omoborty said she decided against it as her silence may be termed to mean consent and seemingly and inadvertently give the story a semblance of truth.

“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”, she began.
Omoborty then went on to explain how she and Dino became acquaintances and what led to te dating rumours, stating they had met at a wedding in 2017 and taken photographs together, adding that she never knew sharing the images online would give rumour mongers something to feast on. “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”, she added.

She then debunked the rumour, saying she is not in any form of entanglement with him. “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. One Love!!!”, Omoborty said.
