According to the dietpi download page re the M2+:

"NB: GPU features are disabled for this board (eg: Kodi, Desktop). Ideal for server usage."

Kodi works on the Raspberry Pi and Odroid range - XU4 and C2.

I understand it will not work on Kodi on this Board ?
or do I need to re-download the image dietpi from the download page ?

Yes the Banana Pi does not run Kodi as the GPU functions are disabled. The Odroid C2 is outstanding for Kodi having 265 hardware decoding up to 4K resolution - much better than the Raspberry Pi 3.
