Ace actress, Bisi Ibidapo Obe, yesterday unveiled the identity of her baby’s father when she formally made his name public. In a christening ceremony at her Magodo residence, in Lagos, yesterday, which had family members and close friends in attendance, Bisi’s baby was named Precious Oluwajomiloju Abikeade Melaye.
The christening of the baby came on the heels of denial of paternity by former member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Dino Melaye. Bisi had named Melaye as being responsible for her pregnancy. The ceremony, which was done by clerics from Celestial Church of Christ, also featured a lavish reception party immediately at a nearby hall. Decked in all white iro and buba attire, Bisi was all smiles, as she cuddled her baby.
It will be recalled that the paternity of the child has been the subject of dispute between the actress and Melaye, who denied this. Months earlier, the actress had accused the former federal legislator of being responsible for her pregnancy, while Dino denied vehemently that he knew anything about the pregnancy. Both parties, according to sources, were introduced to each other by a mutual friend, Lola Alao.
