Comedian, actress and academic, Dr Helen Paul, made the news early in the week when it was reported that she had been appointed as a lecturer at the Heart International Bible University, United States of America.
In a video posted on her Instagram page, the school’s Chancellor, Donrnett Mcintosh, could be seen announcing her induction as the Head of the Department of Arts, music and Entertainment.
Expressing joy at the new appointment, Paul told Sunday Scoop, “Whatever one does in one’s line of work will help one’s career growth. For instance, Nike Davies-Ekundaye of Nike Art Gallery is a beautiful woman and is one of my mentors. Her talent speaks for her both home and abroad to the extent of her getting recognised in universities globally.
“Also, I learnt that Prof Lamidi Fakeye of Michigan University, USA, got promoted on the strength of his artistic works (wood structure) at the Institute of African Studies, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State, in the 1980s. This shows that talent works as well.”
