41-year-old Nigerian comedienne, TV Presenter and actress, Helen Paul, is now officially a Ph.D  graduate from the University of Lagos making her the first Nigerian stand-up comedian to bag a Ph.D.

In a heartbreaking post she made while  dedicating the degree to her mother, she revealed that she was born out of rape and had always been referred to as a bastard. 

Sharing photos of her graduation, 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

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 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."
