Senator Dino Melaye at the Lemonade movie premiere in which he was featured says that he is a born actor and politician.
Melaye was among the actors in the movie produced by Joy Media Productions.
“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 the entertainment industry is one of the strongest weapons that we can be used to ameliorate our problems in this country,” Melaye 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.”
Senator Melaye recently lost his re-election bid in the Kogi West Senatorial Rerun election.
