ABUJA (THE B.O REPORT) – Senator Dino Melaye has been taunted as the next star in the money-spinning Nigeria entertainment industry. The Senator, who represents Kogi West Senatorial District, has been at the centre of many controversies in recent time.

His media aide, Gideon Ayodele, made this known to B.O Report in a press release on Wednesday morning.

“Senator Dino is a great dramatist. He is bold. He sings well. He has the power to take the Nollywood industry by storm. I believe his recent showdown with the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) is to, again, affirm the passion he has for drama and show the talents he’s got! In fact, I’m sure any prospect seen in the latest megabuck winner of Big Brother Naija [Miracle Ikechukwu] has been cast in doubt.

“For a person to do so much in real life fictional movies are no big deal. You will see; Dino will do to the world of entertainment what ‘Dinho did to Brazilian football. Because he hasn’t been lazy to show his forte, I think he deserves an accolade.”

When asked about the criticism that people might whip the Senator with, Ayodele brushed it aside, describing it as “their headache”.

“It is certain that people will bad mouth this ambition. That is their headache. Where were they when Desmond Eliot, a top actor, won a seat to represent Surulere Constituency in Lagos? Even our ever-tweeting Senator Ben Murray Bruce was he not a showbiz icon before becoming a Senator? What’s wrong with Senator Dino going in the other direction?” He said amidst a thunderous round of applause from fans.

A fan present at the press release that identified himself as Loyalist Dino said people have not appreciated the talents of his “superhero” well enough.

“He is my superhero! See, Oga Reporter, he is a man of many parts. He is multitalented – he sings beautifully, dances well, speaks well, and he has action. What else do you need to make a name for yourself? His brilliance, at times, gives me feel goosebumps.

“I believe he just wants to see off his Senatorial career before he hits the entertainment industry. I’m sure when eventually does, Kunle Afolayan, Odunlade Adekola, Ramsey Noah, Davido, Adekunle Gold and even Kaffy will all trail his light.”

Attempts to reach Dino Melaye himself were foiled by the doctors at the Zanklin Hospital, Mabushi, Abuja, who said he needed enough rest “to get ready for the tasks ahead.”
