Melaye made the claim in an interview with journalists in Abuja during the premiere of a movie titled, ‘Lemonade’.

A former chairman, Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory,
Dino Melaye, has said he was born an actor and a politician.

Melaye made the claim in an interview with journalists in Abuja
during the premiere of a movie titled, ‘Lemonade, written by Joy Idoko
and produced by 100% Joy Media Productions, where he featured
prominently.

He also explained that he participated in acting “to send a message
to Nigerians”, ameliorate problems and “get Nigeria out of the cocoon.”

While calling on the government to create laws that would promote
entertainment in Nigeria, Melaye said he participated in the movie “to
send a message to Nigerians, to ameliorate our problems and to get
Nigeria out of the cocoon will be a very strong way to correct the ills
in the society.”

He said, “I am born both as an actor and a politician. The
entertainment industry is a very strong sector of our national life that
should be encouraged. It is richer than oil because oil is exhaustible
but these ideas rule the world as I speak to you. I believe that
entertainment industry is one of the strongest weapons that we can be
used to ameliorate our problems in this country.”

Idoko said, “Lemonade is a movie I shot; it is very dear to my
heart because the story about Lemonade is the story that a lot of people
are going through. People talk about domestic abuse, domestic violence
and all that but people don’t talk about emotional and mental abuse.

“The setting was Abuja and I decided to cast with Senator Dino
Melaye because we wanted to cast a real life Senator, we needed to cast a
politician and I didn’t want to cast an actor as a politician.”
