Korra Obidi apologies to fans over marriage crash


Dancer, singer and social media content creator, Korra Obidi, has said posting her dancing videos was her way of bearing with her marital problem.

She said this during a Facebook Live session, “I decided to address some of the things that have been going on. I really don’t want to wash my linen in public because I know the Internet never forgets.

Korra who recently gave birth to her second child some weeks ago has been finding it difficult with her American husband, Dr Justin Dean, to settle their differences.

Her husband had declared openly that they would be getting a divorce. But, Obidi at first seemed to be unconcerned as she proceeded with posting videos of her dancing on social media.

But now, she has said, “First, I want to apologise to everyone who saw the perfect depiction of a family and the inter-racial love I projected online and bought into it. And now, they are disappointed with what is going on. I am sorry you had to see that and now, you have to see everything crashing. I want to apologise to you, my beloved fans.

“You might see me looking strong and dancing, trying to keep things together. When you see me doing that, just know I am trying to hold things together and be strong for my girls.”

“Trying to keep things together is how I cope. I cope with dance. I can read the comments of people, but I am not going to say anything bad about my husband because I know it would be damaging to my family.

“It takes two in every marriage. I am the only one in the United States of America. I have a two-year-old daughter and a newborn baby. My (extended) family members are not based here. I just want you all to know what I am going through right now. I am not a robot. I am just trying to make ends meet. I am trying to be the strong figure my girls can look up to and emulate.”

However, she noted she will tell her side of the story when she is strong enough to do so.

“When I am strong, I will tell my side of the story. Till then, please be empathetic and kind with your words. If I don’t take care of my girls, no one will. I am just trying to keep my sanity. I don’t want to say anything I would regret. Please keep me in your prayers and remember that I am only human,” she said.
