A Nigerian TV show host, and comedienne, Helen Paul, has commenced a post-doctoral degree in a university in America.
It was reported that Helen is on the verge of becoming a professor barely a year after emerging Nigeria’s first popular stand-up comedian to bag a doctorate.
Dr. Helen completed her doctorate in Theatre Arts from the University of Lagos in 2019.
A source close to the ‘Tatafo’ star said on Wednesday September 23, 2020, that “Helen Paul has been shuttling between Nigeria and the US for some months now.”
“While studying to become a Professor, she is also working as a lecturer in one of the institutions in the US,” the source said.
He added that “Helen is really an inspiration to this generation because combining these academic feats with her comedy career in Nigeria is no child’s play.”
Helen Paul became popular after featuring on one of PSquare’s hit songs, ‘Story’ after which she launched herself on TV and got herself several film roles before landing a job as a co-host of Africa Magic popular lifestyle show, Jara.
