Nollywood actress Helen Paul has recalled how she used to cry at the campus chapel at night because she was referred to as a comedian instead of a singer, which she preferred.

The versatile singer, who is now a PhD holder, got her Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), where she started comedy, singing and acting.

Despite her popularity on campus for doing comedy, the Southampton university lecturer said didn’t like people calling her a comedian. She opened up in an Instagram Live session that, “I became so popular on campus as the new stand-up comedian (in town). I would then go to the campus chapel at night, crying, ‘I am not a comedian. I am a singer.’”

“Comedian how? So people would be laughing at me? But look at how God has been faithful all the while. All my lecturers became mentors, fathers and mothers to me. When I moved to America, some of my lecturers that relocated kept checking up on me.”

“They asked me, ‘What are you doing at the moment’? And, I would tell them I was doing freelance lecturing and comedy. That was how I got recommendations from my lecturers. When one releases oneself to the spirit of God, He is going to do it one hundred per cent. As one door is closing, another one would open.”

Helen Paul also disclosed; “Pastor Kay (Ijisesan) prophesied into my life when I was afraid of coming to America. He said God told him even my work in Nigeria was not over yet.

“I would get a master of ceremonies job here in America and some people would call me, saying, ‘Helen, we heard that you are charging 5000 dollars as MC. Even some people who have stayed long here don’t charge that amount’. Each time that happened, I would just look up and remember the prophecy. God has been faithful.”
