Following her outburst on the circumstance she was born, Nigeria’s popular comedienne cum actress, Helen Paul has bared it all about her father who she had said raped her mother.
Her revelation she said has not stopped her love for her father who said is in good terms with her. The rape story, she revealed further was not her story but her mother who she dedicated her doctorate degree to having passed through a testy period still ensured she is well trained to attain fame and academic height.
“I chose the occasion to reveal the story of my birth because I dedicated the degree to my mother. There is time for everything and I felt it was time to tell the world. Apparently, it’s not even my story; it’s my mother’s.”
“I am humbled and grateful to God for seeing me through the programme. Everyone was happy for me in my family. Even when I finished secondary school, everyone was excited for me. We celebrate each other in my household.”
“Despite my father’s misconduct at the time, I have never held any grudges against him. I am on good terms with my father. Is there anyone who doesn’t have a cordial relationship with his or her father? That can only happen if you are a terrible child.”
“Regardless of what your father might have done to you in the past, your father remains your father. If I said I was not affected by it while growing up, that wouldn’t be honest. It could affect anyone but I used my situation to my advantage. It inspired me to always do more and be the best, instead of being depressed.”
