While we all hope for and believe in true love, as well as a memorable culmination, intimate connections are not entirely as romantic as they look on the television screen, in movies, even for the people who portray it in movies and the known rich in the society. Superstar couples have to learn to handle in the best ways, the exact challenges that all of us have to handle at a point in life.
The love story of Sen. Dino Melaye, one of Nigeria’s most vocal humans within and outside the circle of political power has always been shrouded in storms. Similar to his journey in politics, the politician cum occasional dramatist has not had it easy in marriage–unfortunately.
In spite of the challenges he has faced with regard to accusations of infidelity and domestic violence, the aluta senator stood strong to father some of the most adorable children in the world.
Interestingly, the Kogi born two-time National Assembly legislature isn’t the type that brandishes his family around as he does with his wealth on social media, a behaviour for which he has been criticized heavily.
