  • Kanayo O Kanayo: Law school not easy… five people in my set died reading
    The 58-year-old, who became a certified lawyer after being called to the Nigerian bar, spoke with BBC Igbo, where he also bared his thoughts on what is in store for his acting career. “It’s not easy o! If you say it is, then have a go at it. About 2500 of us were examined. 700 failed. It’s no secret; it’s in the books. Law schools don’t discern between the rich and the poor,” he said. “You can’t influence results. Up to three people mark a script. So you can’t say you failed because an examiner hates you. You’re expected to attend 75 percent of the lectures. “Make even 74.99 percent and you’re out. In my set, five people died. There was this young man who read on January first until he collapsed and died. Our exams started on January 10. “It’s not something you survive only to see people joke about you when you’re back just because they used to see you on TV. If you see lawyers, value them because they’ve gone through a lot.” On the rationales for his decision to opt for law even after a successful acting career, Kanayo O Kanayo said he applied for the course as a young man at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) but was offered an alternative.
