Helen Paul Unveils Surprise Role in Psquare’s Hit Song ‘Story’

Posted By Kaptain Kush

In an unexpected revelation, Nigerian comedian Helen Paul disclosed that she was the voice behind the iconic ‘Uncle, please tell us a story‘ line in P-Square‘s hit song Story, released in 2005.

During a recent interview on the Honest Bunch PodcastHelen Paul shared the behind-the-scenes story, recounting her days as a receptionist when she landed the gig. According to her, the original plan was to have children do the voiceover, but she stepped in when they failed to show up.

At the beginning, I didn’t know P-Square. I didn’t even know they were going to blow. They came to the studio, and they wanted to record their songs. I think they were expecting some children to come and got disappointed,” she revealed.

Ayodeji Adeife, a member of P-Square, recognized Helen‘s talent and suggested, “We have somebody who can do this voice, and this person can do all the range of children.” Helen, with her knack for imitating voices, gladly accepted the opportunity.

I was a receptionist then, and when they told them, they agreed. And the guy just said, Helen, ‘You will work in the nights, but we’re not paying much. I said I don’t care; just buy me a ‘soft drink’ because I loved it at the time. So they gave me the job, and I did the voicing of the children in the song. So they merged all the different children. So it sounded full. When the song started reigning, I didn’t even know what it was to put your name on a song; I didn’t fight for it,” she shared.

This revelation sheds light on Helen Paul‘s unexpected journey from a receptionist to a sought-after voice artist. Her talent didn’t stop at Story; she disclosed that her voice opened doors to numerous opportunities. From earning N9,500 monthly, Helen‘s income soared to over N400,000.

She recalled another instance when her voice secured a job for a milk product advertisement. “Uncle Ayo said, ‘Let’s try Helen,’ and they brought me in to lay the voice, which I did. After the ad, I signed a paper for which I didn’t know the content. At that point, my salary was N9,500; I started receiving about N400,000 or N450,00 every month.”
