Dino Melaye is one controversial politician who has garnered a lot of admiration for himself as well as a lot of dislikes. Recently, ex-BBNaija contestant Deeone took to sharing a photo of himself and Dino.
It would seem that the ex-housemate of the reality TV show visited Dino Melaye recently. The picture looked like some sort of souvenir from their meet-up. Deeone who was evidently happy to have met the politician shared the image on his Instagram page.
Alongside the image, Deeone also wrote a caption and this statement which he embedded side by side with the photo has generated a lot of controversy. In his inscription, the young guy who is also a comedian inferred that the politician deserved more respect than he was getting.
According to him, he felt Nigerians should display more respect for people in such position as Dino’s. He then went ahead to wish Dino well by saying the politician would come out of his problems even stronger.
Deeone said: “When will we learn to treat people with respect?? I believe you will definitely come out stronger! #OneLove.”

The post of the comedian did not go down well with a lot of people. Not many agreed with Deeone on his proclamation of peace and freedom for Dino Melaye. Due to this, many Nigerians flooded his post with comments showing their disapproval of his statement.
See some of the reactions below:
tuvicoladeji: “Respect ko respected ni, let him say whatever he knows about the policeman they claim he shot, abi cos the man is a commoner Dino Shld not be made to face the music of his offense”
cbn_money: “This na the reason you no go fit blow. Yeye fowl.”
maytune14: “Treat wu with respect? Where were you wen police has been inviting him since July last year? Why didn’t you advised him to honour d invitation. Deeone, walahi you fall my hand, this shows you are not competent to seek for any political office in future.”
mickky_mj: “Respect? Na wa for you o deeone. Because you snap picture with am?? Person way him and him thug shoot a police officer whose condition is still critical till now. He was invited since July 2018 but refused to show up, I saw the letter of invitation from the police to the senate Clark. He saw the police and hid himself inside his house for good 8 days claiming he was not at home. Bros just remove mouth for certain political issues o, you are my man. If the police man was your brother, you would not feel the same way. All lives are important.”
sir_oghonemu: “What kind of stupid respect? What will u say about the police that was shot by his boy in his presence? @dinomelaye is not sick he knows what his doing he will go to court and get what he deserves, @comediandeeone will u be saying this if that police man in coma is your brother? Let us stand for the truth,forget if u know him personally. What a double standard act.”
d14wisdom: “If u must last in the show buz,learn to control ur mouth u still young with promising future, dino brought all this to himself let him carry his cross,for u be focused and concentrate on ur career.”
The angry reactions to Deeone’s appraisal of Dino Melaye generated has a lot to do with Dino’s supposed evasion of justice by claiming to be sick ever since he was indicted in a particular case. The politician who had been refusing to show up in court finally yielded after his Maitama residence was surrounded by the police.
