Nigerian comedienne, Helen Paul who was recently promoted to the position of a professor at the Heart International Bible University, USA, has now shared secrets of how she was able to get elevated to the position.

In a chat with the press, Professor Helen paul disclosed thus:

“Whatever you do in your field of work would help in your career growth. For instance, Nike Art Gallery, a beautiful woman who is one of my mentors, her talent speaks for her both at home and abroad to the extent of her getting recognised in universities not just in Nigeria but globally.

“Also, I learnt that Prof. Lamidi Fakeye of Michigan University, USA, got promoted by his artistic works (wood structure) at the Institute of African Studies, Obafemi Awolowo University in the 1980s. This shows that talent works as well.”
