Comedienne Helen Paul talks about her music career
Comedienne Helen Paul is one of the most talented creative persons in the entertainment industry, she is a singer and actress all rolled into one and have had the best and worst moments just like everyone in the industry, with an album in the market, she is seeing herself compete with established artistes like Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay whose albums are selling faster than her, yet she is determined to break through with the support of friends.
Talking about her music career: “A friend, at the same time a big brother, known as Michael Abdul, influenced it. He called me and asked me what I have been doing with the singing part of me. He said he never knew me to be a comedian but a singer. I told him I don't have time and all that, so he invited me to the studio, we sang, did the beat and it was okay. That was how it started.”
However, she doesn't see everyone as friends: “I had some misunderstanding with some people I called my friends sometime back. I believe my friends should build me, make me feel important than destroying me. So now, I build my friends. If someone should come to me saying, they need the service of a person I know but don't have money, I wouldn't call the person. I will rather give them the person's contact, I don't expect friends to be begging me for house rent or some little things. Rather than hurt my friend by getting non-paying jobs for them, I better stay off.”
