Korra Obidi, the Nigerian dancer, has shared a video of herself reflecting on life after her controversial divorce from Justin Dean, the American.
The entertainer has been in the public eye since Dean announced their split in March — a few weeks after they welcomed their second child together.
Dean had accused Obidi of infidelity, narcissism, and unaccountability.
The chiropractor had also said he is heartbroken and needs to walk away from their marriage to protect his mental health.
In a short video shared via her Instagram story, the dancer was seen soliloquizing in what appeared to be a lonely apartment.
“This is what divorce looks like,” she said in the video before letting out a deep breath while also shaking her head.
In a terse post accompanying the video, the mother of two wrote: “f*uck divorce”.
The 27-year-old dancer had recently flaunted a new car she appeared to have bought.
She had earlier said her marriage to Dean failed because the American was not happy about the amount of time she spends on social media.
Obidi also claimed Dean believes her money belongs to him, an idea she was not comfortable with.
“It has been a constant problem every day with my time on social media up until it started to pay,” she had said.
“When the money started coming in it now became go go go, my student loans and that was starting to become my day right.
“But before it started to pay I was being called all sorts of names. When the money starts to come they want to claim ownership of it. Like you’re their property so the money is theirs as well.”
Don Jazzy, the legendary artist and music producer, has revealed what will happen to his relationship status in 2022.
Don Jazzy, the CEO of Mavin Records, has stated that if he does not find love in the year 2022, he will be single forever.
The musician explained everything in a series of videos on his Instagram stories.
He believes that 2022 will be the year in which he will marry his soon-to-be-found lover.
In his words;
“This is 2022, the year we find ‘bae’, if we no find bae this year, I’ll be baeless forever”
It can be recalled that the Marvin boss gave a few details about his marital status having been a topic of interest on social media. He revealed that he lacks the skill to woo a lady.
“I don’t know how to woo; I like it when people woo me. if I like that person, then I will take it further.”
He also revealed that his love and absolute passion for music was responsible for his marriage to Michelle Jackson to collapse.
“I loved love and I loved marriage. Michelle is soo beautiful inside and outside with such a soft heart. But then me being so young and full of dreams I went and f*cked it up cos I was giving all my time to my music.” He said
“Music became my priority instead of my family. We got divorced when I was 22 and it hurt. I am still very much in love with my music and I wouldn’t want to marry another and f*ck it up again so I’m taking my time”

Don Jazzy launches search for love on social media
Mr Macaroni has opened up about his absence when Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo hosted a delegation of Nigerian skit makers in Abuja.
On Wednesday, Osinbajo had received the delegation who visited him under the aegis of the Nigeria Skits Industry Awards (NSIA) at the presidential villa.
The event has since become a subject of heated discussion among Nigerians on social media, with many users questioning why the entertainer was not among the delegation.
But in a lengthy Twitter thread on Friday, Mr Macaroni dismissed claim that he was “sidelined” by the organiser during preparation for the visit.
He also disclosed that he was invited but declined the request because he’s “not happy with the country’s leaders.”
He said with his experience, he believes sitting down with government officials for deliberation does not yield results.
The comedian, born Debo Adebayo, however, said people should not condemn those who honoured the invitation.
“Honestly, I have tried so hard not to say anything about this issue but I have seen some comments and conclusions that do not really sit well with me. My conscience will not allow me to keep mute. So I have to say what I know for my conscience and posterity,” he wrote.
“First, I do not think there is an association of skit makers. If there is, then I don’t know anything about it. And that would be fine because I am an Actor/Thespian first before the tag “skit maker”.
“So, I don’t think those that went to see the VP without me or anyone else meant to sideline me. I want to believe they were invited to see The VP by the organisers of an award ceremony the same way I was invited. The only difference is that I declined the invitation.
“The reason I declined is simple. As a Citizen, I’m not happy with our leaders and I do not want to associate with them. It’s ok if others believe that sitting with the Govt will change certain things and decide to try it out. I don’t think they should be crucified for that.
“I have just seen too much to know that The Govt sees and hears everything. They and their workers are always on the Internet. They know what we cry and complain about and they do nothing about it. So what will sitting down with them to tell them what they already know change?
“I don’t know what was discussed in that meeting as I wasn’t there. But I don’t believe those that went would go there to say anything other than demanding for better governance and leadership as we all have been doing all these while.
“Where I stand is that this is election season. The politicians that have abandoned us for years will start coming back to us again to promise heaven and earth. We need to see beyond their deceit. All they care about is photo. Look around, the PR work has started massively.”
The entertainer also said he has always insisted on a public place whenever politicians invite him for a meeting.
“When politicians say they want to engage me, I always tell them to pick a public place, where all members of press would be present. So that I can say my mind as I see it. When they are begging for votes, they come to us publicly. So why do you want to see me privately?” Mr Macaroni asked.
“I am no hero or saint. I am not perfect. I am only a concerned citizen who wants a better nation for myself and for every other Nigerian. I use my voice, my craft and my platform to do this and I have been greatly persecuted for it.
“This is who I am. It is who I have always been even before fame. I have suffered so much for it and sometimes I ask myself why I am the way I am. But anytime I remember how many lives I have been able to impact positively, I am at peace with myself.
“I don’t think it would be fair to hold any other person by these standards. Hoping we all can promote peace and unity amongst ourselves and explore whatever means we dim fit to demand for a better Nation for ourselves and generations to come.”
