I Don’t Hate My Dad For Raping My Mum – Helen Paul
Comedienne Helen Paul Does Not Hate Her Dad For Raping Her Mum
Helen Paul shocked Nigerians when she revealed that she was a product of rape while celebrating the doctorate degree she recently got from the University of Lagos. The popular comedienne spoke to Sunday Scoop stating she had no regrets sharing the true story of her birth and that she does not hate her dad for raping her mum. She said:
“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.”
Helen also admitted that despite her father’s misconduct at the time, she never held any grudge against him. She stated:
“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.”
Paul also spoke on the need to continue learning because if one stops, learning, the person would stop functioning. She stated:
“I like to learn; so, I will keep learning. Tomorrow, don’t be surprised if you see me learning tailoring or hairdressing. However, there was a time I really wanted to give up while studying for my doctorate degree but I had the right people around me. In life, you cannot do it on your own; you need certain people around you to achieve greatness.”
