There's no stopping a woman on a mission, and the popular comedian, Helen Paul, has time and again proven this to be true. She is excited about recently bagging a PhD and has taken to social media to invite all her fans to celebrate with her on April, 4, her convocation day.

The comedian came into the comedy scene with her unique baby voice willing to tell on her family members, which earned her the name "Tatafo". She has continued to grow in the ever budding industry in Nigeria and has decided to add love for education to her love for arts.

Special thanks to University of Lagos, for finding me worthy of this great position as the first Nigerian stand-up comedian to have a Ph.D (Please argue with the gods) #helenpaul #drhelenpaulMIGHTY Thank You to God almighty for using my mentor and teacher as my supervisor (Prof. Osita Ezewanebe), mama tough no be small, days of crying, fasting, waking up at midnight to pray and even swearing, then asking myself questions like Helen Paul, who send you? To my husband, papa, thank you for your encouragement, your words are sweet ( do it jor, babe face that fear, I can’t wait to see a doctor as my wife every morning).

Helen Paul is popular for her hilarious and diverse skits on social media where she takes on different characters to tackle everyday life. She has never stopped being focused and has her own academy where she trains up and coming actors.

It's great to see women changing the narrative irrespective of the industry they find themselves in. Helen Paul is one woman who is a huge inspiration to many. A big congratulations to her as she continues to soar greater heights.
