Popular dancer, Korra Obidi is reclaiming her ‘Blackness’ after being made to feel like a sellout for marrying outside her race.

 

The Delta state-born performer is married to an American chiropractor, Dr. Dean Justin and they both have a daughter together.

Obidi, who is expecting her second child, took to Instagram on Tuesday September 14 to reveal that she has faced criticisms because she chose to be with a white man despite her being proudly black.

 

She wrote;

 

“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,”

‘a nubian queen like you need some good D’
