Nigerian dancer Kora Obidi reveals how she was made to feel like a ‘sellout’ for marrying a white man

After being made to feel like a ‘sellout’ for marrying outside her race, Nigerian dancer, Korra Obidi says she is reclaiming her ‘Blackness’

The happily married Delta state-born performer is wedded to 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,”

‘Can’t believe you’re with him’
‘a nubian queen like you need some good D’
‘sellout’

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.
