Singer and dancer does not hold anything back when it comes to expressing herself through dance, especially on social media. On different occasions, the entertainer has also been criticized for dancing sensually in the presence of her daughter, June Dean, who is about 18 months old.’
However, in an interview with Sunday Scoop, Obidi stated that it was wrong to demonise sexuality. She said, “I feel that demonising sensuality at such a young age is how a society breeds rapists, pedophiles and all sought of sexually perverse individuals.
“My daughter is a child and she will learn to embrace and love every part of herself, just like her mum. Anyone with a different opinion for a little child has some introspection to do.”
The dancer also admitted that balancing motherhood and one’s career was a tough task. She said, “It is a delicate balance but I have learnt to attack every day like it is the last day I would ever be a mother or an artist.
Though some people believed that being based in the United States of America could limit her career growth, Obidi disagreed. She said, “I don’t think so at all. There is a lot I have to learn. I am young and I have a lot to learn in my chosen career. I believe that Hollywood is the place to really learn and collaborate with other amazing creatives.”
She also maintained that she did not see any need to make a scale of importance between dancing and singing. She added, “Why do we have to separate the two? They both need each other in the modern world of entertainment. We should be in tune with current global trends in the music industry in order to thrive. One has to be well trained in dance and vice-versa. Dance needs music and music needs dance. I have dedicated years of training to both.”
Obidi also noted that she did not intentionally set out to marry a foreigner. “It was not intentional. I was and am still an advocate for true love. Once one finds one’s own, both of them can grow and thrive in a judgment-free zone,” she said.
Revealing the secret of her infectious energy, she said, “Time and its fleeting nature. In the course of our lives, our energetic years are short and fleeting yet, what we make of the time we have determines the quality of the life we live.”
Obidi also noted that she was currently working on an album.
