WCW: Hilarious and Smart, Dr. Helen Paul Is An All Round Package!

She recently was in the news for all the right reasons, our very own comedian, Helen Paul, aka Tatafo became a Doctor! Not a medical doctor, but a book doctor, like a smart, intelligent, qualified personnel with extensive practical and theoretical knowledge on a particular subject, yes, that doctor! Born on the 29th of January, 1978 Helen Eniola Ominitan Paul grew up with her mother and grandmother in Lagos. And although she was not born with the covetous silver spoon, Helen had almost everything she wanted. For her early educations, she attended Omiyade primary school in Fadeyi, after which she went to two different high schools in Yaba and Maryland. She went on to attend Bejide Memorial College where she had her Senior Secondary education.

Unknowingly to little Helen, those childhood experiences and joys will end up shaping one of the most amazing gifts the world have ever seen. With her thirst for knowledge, Helen moved on to the prestigious University of Lagos to study Theatre Arts where she finally got her big break! Tatafo’s first professional performance was right there in her school where she attended an event with her group of friends only for the stand-up comedian billed for the show to literally stand them up. Guess who was on to the rescue? our very own Tatafo, and that’s how a star was born. Despite becoming increasingly popular from thereon, Tatafo bagged her Bachelors degree in 2010 and got her masters degree in Business Administration and Public Administration (MBA and MPA) from the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, two years after.

She got her nickname Tatafo from her radio work with EKO Fm and since then the name has stuck with her. In 2014, she opened a film and theater academy, named “Helen Paul Theater and Film Academy” which consisted of a dance studio, a makeup studio, a recording studio, a rehearsal studio, a photo studio, a mainly digital library, an editing studio.

Her quest for education led her to obtain a certificate in Media Enterprise from the School of Media and Communications, Pan-African University, and a Basic Presentation Certificate from the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN).

Not just a comedian, she is an actress, a singer, a presenter, an entrepreneur, writer, a Doctor, a wife and the mother of two amazing sons.
