April 3rd, 2016 – Nigerian Actor Femi Adebayo Salami: I’m A Lawyer Called To Bar in 2003
In a recent chat with Nollywood actor cum Kwara state political appointee, Femi Adebayo, he talked about his legal career and why he quit law for acting.
When did you decide to dump law for acting?
Sincerely it was even after my call to bar. I was called to the Nigerian bar in 2003 and I decided to turn my passion into profession in 2005.
Do we still see you practicing law?
Inasmuch as I am a qualified barrister, I can appear before the law court.
But it is important to mention that the professional ethics of law won’t permit you to be a practicing lawyer if you are into any other business.
As a lawyer you should have enough time to prepare your matter inasmuch as you want to represent your client in the law court; you shouldn’t misrepresent the court.
So if I am not doing any other thing again, I can decide to go into full-time practice.
