Why I started dating again barely one year after divorcing Korra Obidi – Dr. Justin Dean



Dr. Justin Dean, the estranged husband of popular Nigerian dancer and singer, Korra Obido has revealed why he started dating again barely one year after his union with the dancer packed up.

According to the question and answer he had on social media, Dean said he only lives once, so he is allowed to enjoy his life to the fullest.

A fan asked are you dating again and he responded ‘Yes’

Another asked why he jumped into a new relationship so quick, the father of two said, ‘YOLO’ which means You Only Live Once.


Recall that a few months ago Dr. Dean opened up on how broken he was since their marital crisis started.

Via his Instagram page, he lamented that Korra Obido doesn’t care about their marriage and that he had to leave the marriage for his mental health.

Posting a photo of himself on Instagram, Dr. Dean wrote, “I’m heartbroken! Anyone that knows me or watches me online knows that I’m a dedicated family man to both Korra and my children.
This is honestly the hardest decision of my life, but necessary. I’m walking away from this marriage for my mental health and to be the best version of myself. I must set a healthy example for my children. This has nothing do with postpartum depression. I’ve been betrayed once again and she is unbothered, which pretty much summarizes our marriage.

My apology to the all the young men and women that believed we had a “perfect marriage”. Marriage is based on mutual love, respect, humility, accountability, empathy, apologies and most of all effective communication to understand the other person’s perspectives. Likes and views shouldn’t be the highlight of your relationship. Men: Your mental health matters! In order to be strong, you have to be happy.”
