Renowned lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana has opened up on his decision to let his son, Falz pursue music despite studying law in England.
Femi explained; parents should allow their children choose their desired career path rather than imposing their own choice on them.
Falz approached his dad saying he was tired of practicing in the law profession as expected left him surprised.
Femi falana said, “Don’t force any course on your children, don’t insist that they must be doctors or lawyers. My son Folarin, who was working in our chambers, came to inform me one day that he wanted to leave. I said I could find him a place in one of my chambers. But, he said no, I’m going to be a musician.’
When i asked why, he convinced me but he couldn’t convince his mother because she’s also a lawyer.
Today, he’s doing well as a musician and not as a lawyer. SO let’s debate with our children to know what they want to do.’
