October 22, (THEWILL) – It is no longer news that Nigerian comedian and actress Helen Paul has relocated with her family to the US.
What is, however. news is that the academician has revealed that she has no plans currently of relocating.
In a recent interview, while revealing what spurred her to relocate, she said,
“My move to the US was divinely orchestrated.
“This is because I was recommended as being eligible for a category of professionals with special abilities in a chosen field. I also had ideas about replicating my work with an academy I established in Nigeria for young and aspiring entertainers.
“I have a dream to tell the story of Africans and African Americans through the lens. I want to take our form of entertainment, particularly black-oriented entertainment, to the ends of the world.
“And yes, I am keeping my comedy alive. I have been performing in some concerts and comedy shows in some parts of the US. And when I am opportune, I still anchor shows and perform at events in Nigeria. I’m still connected to my roots.”
Asked if she would be returning home anytime soon, she said, “Like I said earlier, I remain connected to my roots. I am still contributing and will continue to contribute to the development of Nigeria, being the place where I broke out as an entertainer.
“Whether I intend to return is not a subject I have not considered. I am at home in the US also. I will continue to contribute to the growth and development of any home that God has provided to me. That is a God-given assignment.”
