    It was not until ... that...

    I come across the following sentence and please tell me what i have to do with this sentence:
    He hadn't been a famous singer before he went to Paris.
    -> It was not until he went to Paris that he was/ has been a famous singer.

    Please tell me which one is correct. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Neither is correct. What do you mean by "... tell me what I have to do with this sentence"? Is this homework?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Actually, I'm an English tutor and English is not my first language. I would like to be a member of this forum to improve my English grammar. When looking for some grammar points in books and on the internet, I came across this sentence. that made me confused.
