Comedienne Helen Paul bagged a doctorate in Theatre Arts from the University of Lagos, Unilag on Thursday and took to social media to celebrate.
The Ph.D was dedicated to her late mother, whom she revealed had from rape.
Speaking via her Instagram page @itshelenpaul on Friday, the TV presenter, actress and radio personality wrote, “I HELEN PAUL dedicate this to my mum, you gave birth to me out of rape, they told you I wouldn’t amount to anything.
“I grew up hearing from family members; being called a “Bastard” and each time I asked you, you said `Olorun lon wo omo were, Olorun ma wo e’.
“Meaning God watches over the child of a mad person, he’d watch over you.
“Mummy I want you to know I love you, I might not buy you Benz now because I don’t have a `Pant’ yet but this certificate will amount to something great.
“They say fame is nothing but Grace is everything and I pray for grace in everything I do.
“I’m not a Cele member but Late Oshofa gave me the name and everything Late Oshofa said about Helen Paul is coming to pass.
“I dedicate this to every mother, may God make you strong enough to survive and enjoy the fruit of your labour,” she wrote.
Helen Paul, came to spotlight as ‘Tatafo’ from the radio programme “Wetin Dey” on Radio Continental 102.3FM, Lagos.
