Love knows no color – Nigerian dancer Kora Obidi speaks on her decision to marry a white man

Popular dancer, Korra Obidi has taken to her Instagram page to make clarity after being made to feel like a sellout for marrying outside her race.

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

Obidi, who is expecting her second child, took to Instagram on Tuesday September 14 to say 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.
