Nollywood Veteran Kanayo O. Kanayo is Now a Lawyer
Nollywood veteran actor Kanayo O Kanayo has shared on social media that he is now a lawyer.
The movie star made this known via his Instagram page on Tuesday, September 15, 2020, where he shared a photo of himself wearing the traditional robe and wig.
“To God be all the Glory. You can now address me as Anayo Modestus Onyekwere, Esq, MFR ( Barrister And Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria),” he captioned the photo.
After getting his first degree in the early 1990s, the actor who always wanted to go back for a law degree has finally done so and he has been called to bar.
In his post, he encouraged his followers to work for their goals, no matter how old they are. He said, “Don’t you ever give up on anything you want to become” I have always wanted to study law since my first degree in the early 1990s.
The “Living in Bondage” actor shocked everyone five years ago when he enrolled for a Law degree at the University of Abuja. He graduated in 2018 and went to the Nigerian Law School where he passed the examinations in July 2020.
He has gone on to feature in over a hundred movies in his career which has spanned in nearly 3 decades.
He is currently a United Nations ambassador and bears the title of MFR which was awarded to him by the Nigerian government in 2013
