Helen Paul to remain in USA with family
Helen Paul, a Nigerian comedian and actress, has moved to the United States with her family and says she has no plans to return to Nigeria anytime soon.
In a recent interview, when asked what motivated her to relocate, she stated,
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.
When asked if she planned to return home 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.
