Sinclair Timmy, popularly known as Trikytee from the reality show Big Brother Naija Lockdown edition has exclusively revealed to AllBallerZone (ABZ), that he intends to go into politics in future.
The 36-year-old who was made Senior Special Assistant to Bayelsa State governor, Douye Diri in November 2020 is nursing the ambition to become a politician and wants to help better the lives of the average citizen.
Responding to questions during an exclusive interview with AllBallerZone, Trikytee said: ‘I see myself going into politics. Not now but down the line when I’m a little bit older than now.
‘And my goal will be to improve on the things that I see that are wrong. That’s the reason why I would go into politics to do my own quarter to make Nigeria a better country.
‘It’s never about being popular or famous or for the money but I really want better life for my people, especially for the average Nigerians – create opportunities in the little way that I can. Those are the reason why I would really love to go into politics. But like I said, it would not be now but down the line – not so early.’
The Bayelsa born star who is into movies, music, production and comedy skits at the moment, decried the lack of support for the entertainment industry from government and called for support to help turn things around.
He told ABZ: ‘I feel like the government needs to be more enlightened as regards entertainment. If we had a little more support from the government, it will help. Not just in terms of money alone but structure. Putting institutions in place that would actually protect artists and intellectual property rights.
‘The government not doing much for entertainment is actually like they are shooting themselves in the foot. Because the entertainment industry is one that has portrayed Nigeria in positive light across the world and its one area that has employed a lot of young people. We have artists, movie directors, producers, editors, set designers and so on. If the entertainment industry is properly developed it would create even more opportunities for young Nigerians.’
