Nigerian and Delta State born belly dancer, Korra Obidi, has wowed judges at the “So You Think You Can Dance" audition after she showed up and strutted her stuff with a visible baby bump.
Korra, who is a princess from Oshimili North, Delta State, defied all odds to pursue her dance and entertainment dreams in Shanghai, China, in spite of her strict religious parents’ lack of support.
Although she was not picked for the show because of her pregnancy, she expressed her happiness and gratitude for the opportunity to be able to dance on that stage and express herself.
“I want every young girl in Nigeria to see that you can do anything that you want to do if you put your mind to it, pregnant or not,” she said.
After her presentation, she received lots of compliments and praises from the judges and cheers from the audience.
Korra is married to Dr Justin Dean, a chiropractor, and they currently live in Los Angeles, California. They are expecting their first child.
