Helen Paul is a comedienne, singer and actress from Nigeria. She is best known as a stand-up comedian and popularly known as Tatafo. Her style is quirky and spontaneous, and her petite stature and voice range makes her sound like a child.
Helen spent most of her early years with her mother and grandmother, both in Lagos. As a kid, she used to entertain small groups of peers, neighbours and friends within the neighbourhood. As she grew, the entertainer in her also developed with time. In many of the interviews she later granted to several media houses, she would recall that her growing up was not easy, as it was filled with “ups and downs” – raised by two disciplinarians but meanwhile, the entertainer in her knew no boundaries.
Helen bagged a bachelor’s degree in Theater Arts in 2010 and a master’s degree in 2012, from the prestigious University of Lagos. She also has professional qualifications from reputable institutions, including 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). She is currently undergoing her PhD degree in Theater Arts, also in the University of Lagos.
