Nigerian skit maker cum actor, Michael Sani Amanesi popularly known as MC lively has expressed appreciation to Nigerian rapper, Falz, for being a source of inspiration to him.
Naija News reports that the comic actor during an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo revealed how Falz made him dump law for comedy.
According to MC Lively, there is no doubt about his love for law and he was very successful at it, however, there was a struggle between what he studied and what he wanted in reality.
The skit maker recounted how he was offered N5,000 monthly as a Corper and the struggle to get a place of primary assignment (PPA).
He added that Falz is one of his greatest inspiration and mentor because his lifestyle prompted him to dump law.
In his word: “I love law so much, and I excelled at it. But there’s such a struggle between what one does in school, and what obtains in real life. I mean, how do I go to law school and spend such huge amounts of money, and straight out of Law School, I’m being offered N5,000 per month.
“And before I even got that particular one, I had gone to 3 or 4 different chambers. Now, imagine what I would have to go through when I want to get an actual job.
“It was such a huge problem when I was in law school, telling people that I wanted to be a comedian. People would always ask why I spent 5 years, including law school, just to end up as a comedian.
“Most times, when you want to do something, it’s always easier when there’s someone who has done that same thing. And I’m usually like Falz the Bahd Guy also he studied Law too. I just want to say, Thank you, boss; that’s one of my greatest inspirations and mentors.”
