Renowned songwriter, music producer, advocate, and singer Sylver Kyagulanyi walked home with a master of laws.
In 2018, Silver Kyagulanyi was among the 700 lawyers who graduated with a Post Graduate Diploma in legal practice from the Law Development Centre (LDC), making him eligible to represent clients in court.
In January 2019, the local gospel singer was among the 144 Lawyers that enrolled as Advocates of the High Court in Kampala.
The singer later furthered his studies, and today he was among those who bagged a master of laws from Uganda Christian University.
During his graduation in 2019, he explained why he chose to do a law course instead of focusing on music indicating that law had been his passion since childhood.
He said if he had not done music, probably, he would have become an advocate a long time ago.
“Everyone has their approach of doing things and my approach was the concentration approach of keeping a low profile while I studied law and that is why you didn’t hear it anywhere that I was pursuing a law course,”
“Even in my music career, I have always had a low profile approach to it but for the last five or six years, I was at the law school and after becoming a lawyer, that didn’t give me locus to represent clients in court and because I wanted to practice law, that is why I had to come to LDC and do a Bar course. It’s a good feeling, it’s a good day,” he added.
