Why I abandoned my law degree for celebrity protection- Kelvin Power, Kizz Daniel’s Bodyguard

Atobiloye Kelvin Kayode aka Kelvin Power, bodyguard of musician Kizz Daniel is a law graduate from University of Ado Ekiti, now Ekiti State University, who left law practice for ‘bodyguarding’.

Speaking in an interview with Premium Times, Kelvin Power said his desire to get rich quickly and ensure his mother ate the labour of her love over him before she died, made him dump law.

He said, “Growing up, I have always wanted to be a pride to my family. Whenever they do anything inter-house sports, I would always want to make sure that I would play a role that would identify me differently and bring pride to my parents. That has always been my goal.

“And I wanted to just quickly make sure I fed my mother because my mother suffered a lot to raise us. That motivated me to study law, but when I calculated the time I would spend studying law and becoming wealthy and well-established, I realised that for someone of my background, it would take a very long time, and I wanted my mother to be alive and enjoy the fruits of her labour.

“So I abandoned law and went into bodybuilding, and for that, I thank God. And honestly, that was the peak of it; I followed my passion, and it brought me good people and good fortune that changed my life. All the good people I have met were always from the gym.

“I didn’t go to law school, but I studied and graduated with a law degree from the University of Ado Ekiti.”
