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.
