There are a few ways to describe Foza aptly. If you call her an expert in African entertainment law, you’d be correct. If you say she strikes you as a confident person, that also, in fact, would be correct.
It won’t be surprising if you recognise Foza Fawehinmi as the most notable entertainment law specialist in Nigeria. However, there are more facets to her professional career than meets the eye.
Only a few people in the Nigerian and sub-Saharan African entertainment industry have experienced her in full character. Like masters of businesses commanding global influence across industries worldwide: top pan-African artists who finally got rewarded for their creative works; African government officials who received world-class counsel from her on intellectual property matters.
Therefore, it’s a no-brainer that most of them describe her with words like “bold”, “fearless”, “creative”, and “great”, among others.
