Popular comedian and actor MC Lively also known as Barrister Mike, in a chat with Chude Jideonwo, opened up about his educational background.
MC Lively revealed he failed to pass admission exams organized by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) as many of his friends gained admission, and he was left alone.
The comedian revealed he had to study hard, adding that he was the only one that attended a public school among his siblings, which made him consider himself the sacrificial lamb.
The comedian spoke about his love for law, but the struggles of life after school made him consider other options.
He revealed he was offer N5,000 per month at a law firm.
In his words:
“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.”
MC Live said it was hard to explain to people he wanted to be a comedian when he was at law school as people wondered why he chose to spend 5 years just to go into comedy.
“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,” He said.
