Popular Nigerian comedian, Helen Paul, who recently bagged a doctorate degree, has said that she doesn’t hate her father despite the fact that he raped her mother.
She made this revelation in a new interview with journalists following her statement about being a product of rape shortly after her convocation in UNILAG.
Read excerpts from her interview:
“I am on good terms with my father. Is there anyone who doesn’t have a cordial relationship with his or her father? That can only happen if you are a terrible child. Regardless of what your father might have done to you in the past, your father remains your father. If I said I was not affected by it while growing up, that wouldn’t be honest. It could affect anyone but I used my situation to my advantage. It inspired me to always do more and be the best, instead of being depressed.”
