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 .
