Korra Obidi Net Worth – $700,000
What is Korra Obidi’s net worth? Is Korra Obidi married?
The self-proclaimed Delta Princess is a Nigerian performer who moved to the United States armed with a dream: to find fortune and fame in California.
A musician, singer, dancer, academy founder, author, and all-around entertainer, Korra Obidi is a force to be reckoned with and a charismatic Nigerian beauty with a lot on her plate.
The young mom found fame on social media and through the hit television series So You Think You Can Dance—but she’s not without her fair share of controversy.
In fact, when she first graced screens across the continental United States, she was 6 months pregnant.
Since then, the young mom has released her own single—50/50—which amassed millions of stream views across social media and featured her baby daughter, June.
Korra isn’t one to relinquish control of her new career, either.
She writes her own music, performs it herself, choreographs the dances, directs the visuals, and has even taught herself belly dancing, Konga drumming, and how to sample elements from her favorite music genres: Pop and Afrobeats.
Obidi hasn’t let the glitter and glamor of life in Hollywood turn her head, and has stayed on track to achieve countless accolades, like an appearance on CNN’s African Voices and Africa Rising, a maternity shoot, and several features in the media of her native Nigeria.
As an entertainer, musician, dancer, mom, and businesswoman, it’s starting to look like there’s nothing this strong Nigerian woman cannot do—but what do we really know about her?
Read on to find out.
The Origin Story
Obidi Chukwumfumnaya Anita—the performer we know as Korra Obidi—was born and raised in Oshimili North Local Government Area in Nigeria’s Delta state.
She has two sisters and a brother, and her father is a banker in Lagos, Nigeria.
She was born on June 23, 1990, and her family was heavily involved in the Deeper Christian Life Ministries.
She was fortunate enough to attend a good school, Command Secondary School, in Ojo, Lagos.
After graduating from high school in 2006, Korra immediately enrolled to study Database Computer Software Engineering.
From there, she went to the University of Lagos to study Business.
It was around this time that the Obidi family lost their matriarch, Korra’s mother.
Her father—who would eventually become her biggest fan—worked hard to provide for the family.
It was also around this time that Korra discovered her love of performing.
While she’d always enjoyed dancing, she went on tour with some fellow entertainers as part of a professional troupe while she was at the University of Lagos.
Well and truly bitten by the entertainment bug, she knew that this was what she wanted to do with her life.
Leaving Home for the American Dream
Korra had built a strong career in Nigeria when she decided to move to China to team Dance, Music, and English at the Fumao Culture school in Shanghai.
On the way, she stopped in Dubai to learn belly dancing.
After a few months in her new home in Shanghai, Korra decided it was time to get out and meet new people.
Like any good Millennial, she joined Tinder.
It was here that she met her “Ikechukwu” (American Cowboy) Justin Dean.
At the time, Dean was working as a Physiotherapist for the Chinese Olympic team in the city.
He and Korra dated for several months, but Justin said in a 2020 interview that he knew “almost instantly” that he wanted to marry his girl.
Husband & Children
In a small ceremony in Nigeria in December of 2017, just months after meeting, Korra Obidi and Justin Dean tied the knot in a traditional Nigerian ceremony. Justin’s mom had flown from the US to attend.
Obidi was able to secure a US fiancé’s visa so the pair could be legally married in the US, and the pair settled in California.
In July of 2019, the happily married pair welcomed their first child—a daughter named June—to the world.
Their second daughter, Athena, was born in March 2022.
The following month, Justin took to social media to announce that he and Korra were ending their marriage.
Their whirlwind romance had come crashing down around their ears, and despite having a brand new baby at home, Dean claimed he “would not be treated this way any longer.”
Following the announcement, stories came out that Korra had cheated on Dean between their Nigerian wedding and their US wedding, and she came under fire for her clickbait social media posts.
In the posts, she claimed to have had her children taken away from her.
They were, in fact, with their father for his scheduled weekend.
