Controversial lawyer and social media sensation Ifunanya Excel Grant has reacted to the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) statement denying her membership.
In a viral video posted on Facebook, she stated that she is not a practising lawyer at the moment but may consider practising in future.
She said her career path is focused on entertainment, which ranges from modelling, acting and making rap music.
Ifunanya, who is also known as the “Baddest Lawyer”, said:
“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.

I have been into entertainment before becoming a lawyer – Ifunanya
She stated that her lifestyle on social media is just for entertainment purposes and not for the sake of disregarding the legal profession.
Ifunanya said she has always been in the entertainment scene, even before becoming a lawyer, and that whatever she shares on social media should be seen as her alter-ego of entertainment.
She also lamented that some social media accounts with her pictures are fake and that she has never been a Twitter user.
Ifunanya said her main social media domain is Instagram, and many fake Instagram accounts are in her name.
