Helen Paul, Popular Nigerian comedienne and actress, has said that she is sometimes tempted to show off her material possessions like some in the entertainment industry.
Helen who is a lecturer in the United States of America, stated this during an Instagram Live session monitored by Saturday Beats.
She said, “I once told someone that I really loved his work and that I would like to work with him. I had seen him manage two female artistes successfully. However, his response was, “Helen, if I am going to work with you, you may not like my pattern. We may have to create one or two scandals for you so that the crowd can ‘follow’ you’. I then asked him what type of scandals he meant.
He told me to check up on people that had about 10 million followers also cited that the scandal could be a divorce or any other controversial issue, after you do that , you would get (more) followers.
He also stated that after some time, I should begin doing charitable acts that would cover up any unpleasant thing I had done. He felt that the most important thing was to have many followers. There is a lot of manipulation out there and some times, one cold be tempted to consider doing those things. Sometimes, I am tempted to post (on social media) some of the materials possessions I have acquired. But, I am blessed to have people that call me to order. So, I am not able to show off, and that could be painful too.”
She also said that she once lost a two-month pregnancy while on a motorcycle.
She said, “I am comfortable working with guys, I have a problem working with ladies. I had more than five commercial motorcycle riders on standby. In case there was traffic, they would pick me up from any location.
One day, I was going for a show and I was two months pregnant. I was with a friend named Frank and it was on that bike I lost my pregnancy. I told Frank that something was wrong with my stomach and that I was stained with blood. He checked my clothes and said I was stained with the blood of my menstrual cycle. I told him then that I had lost my pregnancy. At my instruction, I was taken to a hospital in Ikeja, Lagos State. The hospital cleaned me up but sadly, I could not attend the show I was rushing to.”
