I celebrate an amazing woman today. A woman who has inspired so many. Helen Paul is a comedian, singer and actress. She recently graduated with a doctorate in Theatre Arts from the University of Lagos.
Helen has worked as a freelance and full-time presenter at several media houses in Nigeria. These include Lagos Television (LTV 8), Continental Broadcasting Service (CBS), and MNet (where she currently co-presents JARA on Africa Magic). Helen broke out as a naughty comic character on the radio program Wetin Dey on Radio Continental 102.3FM, Lagos. She is known on the programme as “Tatafo”, a witty kid who addresses and lampoons societal issues in a satirical manner. She also presented programmes on TV Continental and Naija FM 102.7
In July 2012, Helen released her debut album ‘Welcome Party’ which contains Afro-Pop songs such as ‘Boju Boju’, an Afro RnB song titled ‘Children of the World’, and ‘Use Calculator’, an enlightenment song about the menace of the HIV-AIDs epidemic. In 2018, she released the audio and visuals of her single titled “Never Knew”, an inspiring song about her developmental years and career progress thus far.
Helen opened a bridal and fabric boutique in Lagos in 2012, called Massive Fabrics and Bridals. She has since proceeded to open three other outlets of the boutique in different parts of Lagos. In 2014, she opened a film and theatre academy, the Helen Paul Theatre and Film Academy. It consists of a dance studio, a makeup studio, a recording studio, a rehearsal studio, a photo studio, a mainly digital library, an editing studio, and a hostel for students.
