Controversial former Senator, Dino Melaye, has said that the entertainment industry is one of the strongest weapons that can be used to ameliorate problems in the country.
The recently defeated Senator also said he was born an actor and a politician.
Melaye made the statement in an interview with news in Abuja during the premiere of a new movie titled “Lemonade” where he was featured.
“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,” he said.
The producer of the movie, Joy Idoko said that Melaye was casted because the storyline required a ŕeal-life Senator.
