Ifunanya Excel denies practicing law, says she is focused on entertainment



Controversial figure from Nigeria, Ifunanya Excel Grant, who is recognized as “Baddest Lawyer” on social media, has made it clear that she does not practice law and has no plans to pursue a legal career. She conveyed this message through a video posted on her TikTok page, responding to the petition lodged against her by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).

It should be noted that the NBA has recently submitted a formal complaint to the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee, accusing Ifunanya of misconduct.

She said in the video: “If I keep quiet, it’s going to be like an admission of guilt. So, it’s good for me to come out and actually clear my name. I’m not a practising lawyer. I am a lawyer by book, but I am not practising. At least for now, I don’t have any interest to practise law, maybe someday in the future.”

She continued: “At the moment, I am a model. I am an actress, and I am an upcoming musician, a rapper, to be precise. So everything I do, everything I post [on social media] is just for entertainment purposes. It has nothing to do with my legal career. I’m not practising law. I don’t have any intention to practise law for now. So right now, my focus is on the entertainment business.”

She further explained: “Before I even became a lawyer, I was a model. I have always been a model. And I have always been into music. I have always been an actress. So, lawyer is just one of the numerous things I am. Everything I post on social media is in my capacity as a model, an actress, and upcoming rapper.”
