We are going to be looking at list of Nigerian Celebrities you didn't know were trained Lawyers.
There are actually some of our Celebrities who you're outrightly unaware obtained degrees in law.
Well, I am not surprised.
Most of these guys already rose to prominence with their stage roles, thereby shading the personal details surrounding their lives.
While there are diverse reasons why these guys shaded these part of them, one truth can be ascertained; they prolly derive joy in their current career, which revolves around entertainment.
Change of passion, could also be another reason why these guys opted for a change in their occupations.
I believe someone who was a well trained lawyer, could actually switch for another occupation, if there is a change in their passion.
Other factors, includes, personal choices, financial pressure etc.
