Revealing that her mother conceived her from an unpleasant act of rape, Helen Paul: ”I HELEN PAUL dedicate this to my mum, you gave birth to me out of rape, they told you I wouldn’t amount to anything.
“I grew up hearing from family members; being called a “Bastard” and each time i asked you, you said (Olorun lon wo omo were, Olorun ma wo e meaning God watches over the child of a mad person, He’d watch over you).
“Mummy I want to know I love you, I might not buy you Benz now because I don’t have a Pant yet but this certificate will amount to something great.
“They say Fame is nothing but Grace is everything and I pray for grace in everything I do.”
Further, she wrote: “I’m not a Cele member but Late Oshoffa gave me the name and everything late Osofa said about Helen Paul is coming to pass.
I dedicate this to every mother, may God make you strong enough to survive and enjoy the fruit of your labour.”
