Nigerian musician, Falz, took to his Instagram page to share photos showing his mother, Funmi Falana, celebrating the achievement of being appointed the Senior Advocate of Nigeria.
Falz’s mother, Funmi Falana, is a practicing lawyer and women’s activist. She first studied physics at the University of Benin before obtaining a law degree from the University of Lagos. She also obtained her Masters degree (LL.M) from the University of Lagos.
Although she is known to most people as the wife of Femi Falana, a renowned human rights activist, lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), she has also made some great achievements in her career.
Before celebrating her SAN status earlier today, November 27, she was a member of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), the West African Bar Association and the International Bar Association, and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
Falz’s mother is currently the national director of Women Empowerment and Legal Aid (WELA), a non-governmental organization that defends the rights of women and children.
Falz, who is also a lawyer and has been a member of the NBA since 2012, shared a photo of himself posing with his father and mother as they celebrated her. The rapper and Nollywood actor also shared a photo of himself posing next to his mother.
