Korra Obidi a Nigerian Sensation and IWAA Social Media Influencer Award Winner was attacked in London

Korra Obidi, a multifaceted talent hailing from Nigeria, has been making waves in the entertainment industry with her exceptional skills in music, dance, and now, social media influence. At just 26 years old, she has captured the attention of audiences worldwide with her unique sound, captivating performances, and inspiring journey.

Obidi's rise to fame gained momentum when she appeared on the reality TV show "So You Think You Can Dance" while six months pregnant, defying expectations and showcasing her unparalleled dedication to her craft. Her performance on the show garnered widespread acclaim, solidifying her status as a force to be reckoned with in the world of dance.

Following her groundbreaking appearance on the show, Obidi continued to defy conventions by releasing her hit single "50/50," which quickly amassed over 4 million views on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. What set this release apart was not just the catchy beats and infectious melodies, but also the inclusion of her newborn, June Dean, in the music video—a powerful statement of motherhood and empowerment.

One of Obidi's most impressive feats is her ability to not only perform but also to write and direct the visuals for her music. Drawing inspiration from her female ancestral entertainers and her background in belly dance, she infuses her work with cultural richness and authenticity. Additionally, her self-taught skills as a drummer on the Konga add a unique flair to her music, blending elements of Afrobeats and Pop seamlessly.

Despite her meteoric rise to fame, Obidi has recently faced a harrowing ordeal. While live-streaming from her residence in London, she was viciously attacked with acid and a knife. The incident shocked her fans and the wider community, but Obidi's resilience and strength have been unwavering. She has since been receiving medical care and is on the road to recovery, buoyed by the overwhelming support and love from her fans.

In the face of adversity, Korra Obidi's spirit remains unbroken. Her journey from a talented performer to a social media influencer award winner is a testament to her determination, creativity, and unwavering passion for her craft.
