In April 2007, Melkam 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.
Melkam 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.
Melkam's younger brother Innocent Melkam plays football in a German lower league.
