After sharing a dance video where she wore an outfit that revealed too much of her body, Korra Obidi became a topic of ridicule on social media.
While many people were quick to slam Obidi, the dancer and singer’s white husband, Dr. Justin Dean, came to her support.
Reacting to questions on criticisms, while speaking with Sunday Punch, Obidi stated, “People are entitled to their opinions about me, but it doesn’t change who I am and I enjoy who I am. Social media bullies are not critics; so, I don’t care much about what they say about me or what I do. But I pay attention to constructive criticisms from friends and loved ones.
“There’s a revolution coming to Nigeria. Nigerian women will no longer be bed wenches and kitchen stewards relegated to the other room. They will be equal to men and free to express themselves. They will be assets, not liabilities aspiring to be kept in a home. The change is coming and I want to be remembered as a pioneer in this cause.”
Also, she said she had no regrets in life, as she was living her best life.
“Though there are challenges, it is not peculiar to music or dance alone. As humans, we face challenges every day. I see myself as living a privileged existence and I don’t take it for granted. So far, I have no regrets in life. I didn’t settle for dance; it is a thing of honour to be paid to entertain people. I have always wanted to be a dancer as a kid; so, being an entertainer is a dream come true for me,” Obidi explained.
