Congratulations to AML New Lawyers IREDUMARE, Ollachi Holman and Dr. Sid’s Simi Osomo


Congratulations to Africa Music Law’s avid reader and fan Iredumare for being called to the Nigerian Bar. Iredumare recently left the following comment on AML:

“Lady like man, so the Yoruba would say. After carefully making your site a mentor during undergraduate days, I think it’s time I plead to have direct communication with a mentor and a senior colleague. One who asks, never misses his way (Yoruba saying) and no one reaches the Top by merely looking at it (Igbo saying)… in this light I seek to have the opportunity to communicate with you . . .”

I am honored. Thanks Iredumare.

I never dreamt of practicing law in the USA. I wanted to practice law in Nigeria. I was a Nigerian kid, I thought, growing up in Nigeria with a deep passion for law and to execute my vision of a credible legal justice system for my fellow Nigerians on Nigerian soil. I had no idea my root/birth was in the USA. Needless to say, I LOVE practicing here in the USA but I sure envy those of you in Nigeria too. I guess we always want what we don’t have? 🙂

Congratulations are also in order for AML’s Ollachi Holman who was an intern with us earlier this year. Ollachi passed the California bar, which I shared the story with you all, and recently just passed the Texas bar as well.


Finally, Dr. Sid’s wife Simi Osomo (who had an “introduction” in anticipation of an upcoming traditional/white wedding this past weekend), has also been called to the Nigerian Bar. Congrats counsel on both becoming a lawyer and your (upcoming) wedding.

Simi Osomo

My door is always open to fellow law colleagues, new lawyers, and law students.

I wish you all a very successful legal career. Please feel free to reach out ( for questions you may have as you begin and during your  journey as  a practitioner.
