Acid attack: Korra Obidi knocks ex-husband for doubting her

Nigerian singer and dancer, Korra Obidi has slammed her ex-husband and father of her two daughters, Justin Dean, for claiming that she staged the attack on her for clout.

NIGERIAFILMS reported that the entertainer was attacked with a knife and acid by a yet-to-be-identified woman on Thursday while live-streaming.

Reacting to the news, Dr Dean wrote via his Instagram page, “A common tactic amongst celebrities to stay relevant is to stage robberies, assaults or anything else to drum up the views. This has gone too far.”

Fans suspected that Dean’s post was directed at his ex-wife.

Responding in a video message shared via her Instagram account on Friday, Obidi explained that her attack wasn’t staged for clout.

She said, “I understand that there are a lot of artists who had in the past tried to create scenarios like this for clout chasing, but I promise you I’m not one of them.

“I don’t need that kind of clout. It’s not that deep for me, I just want to sing and dance. What happened yesterday, I escaped with the best possible scenario. I had a whole bottle of acid on my face. I escaped by holding onto the knife and still have few bruises. I’ve scars from the knife. I’m glad this was live, and there is ample evidence.”
