In April 2007, he was banned three matches and fined 5000 RMB for misconduct for showing "All Referee of Chinese Super League were cheat." on his T-shirt after the match against Henan Jianye, to revenge the serious mistake of referee on the match Xiamen Lanshi against Shanghai Shenhua.
He finished runner up at the 1999 African Youth Championship and quarter-finalist at 1999 FIFA World Youth Championship. Melkam was included in the Nigerian squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Zimbabwe on 5 September. The tie marked the debut of the then-Hansa Rostock defender Melkam, who narrowly missed out on a place in Nigeria's 2004 Cup of Nations squad.
His younger brother Innocent Melkam plays football in a German lower league.
