Nigerian Dancer, Korra Obidi is reclaiming her Blackness after she was being criticized for marrying a white man.
The Delta state-born dancer is married to American chiropractor, Dr. Dean Justin and they both have a daughter and also expecting their second child.
According to her, she stated despite the Blacklash she received from people she is still the black woman she used to be and will never change that.
In her words;
“So, it’s no story I got married to a blued eyed, blonde American man and I get a lot of opinions daily about my choice of a partner,”
‘Can’t believe you’re with him’
‘a nubian queen like you need some good D’
If you eat pineapples enough, you begin to smell like one.
I started to feel like a ‘sellout’,
Doubts and Questions Like ‘Korra,
if you are so black and proud, why did you marry ‘white’?
Then I remember, I didn’t choose love, Love chose me, it is divine and beyond me. And what I can’t control, shouldn’t make me feel less of me
Today I reclaim my Blackness!
Who I choose to love doesn’t make me less black
Love who you want. Blue white or green. Love knows no color.
I am #blackAF straight from the motherland and that’s on my mother.
