Helen Paul has repeatedly expressed her excitement at being the first Nigerian stand-up comedian to bag a Ph.D.
She began her career as a freelance and full-time presenter at several media houses in Nigeria. These include Lagos Television (LTV 8), Continental Broadcasting Service (CBS), and MNet.
As a comedian, her first professional performance happened whilst she was a student at the University of Lagos. She attended an event with a group of friends but the stand-up comic billed to perform failed to show up.
Helen has won several awards including African Film Award, Exquisite Lady of the Year Award, Female TV Presenter of the Year and Outstanding TV female presenter.
