‘You gave birth to me out of rape’ – Comedienne, Helen Paul writes as she dedicates her PhD to her mum

Popular comedienne, Helen Paul who bagged a PhD in Theater Arts from the University of Lagos (UNILAG), on Thursday April 4, 2019, has taken to social media to dedicate her recent success to her loving mum.

In a post shared via her official Instagram page, the comedian cum thespian raised a few eyebrows after she revealed she was conceived by an act of rape in the same post where she celebrated her mother’s contributions to her success story.

She 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.”

The post has since generated mixed reactions on the social networking site.

Read the full post below.

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 werey, Olorun ma wo e meaning God watches of the child of a mad person, he’d watch over you).

Mummy I want 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 Osofa gave me the name and everything Late Osofa 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.
