Obumseli’s Resurfaced Tweets
At the time of Obumseli’s death, old tweets of him speaking about his dating choices resurfaced. He stated that Black women weren’t his preference.
His cousin Jessica Nwabuko told The Shade Room in an exclusive interview:
He was 17-years-old. He was a high school kid. I’m pretty sure that everybody who was young was just saying senseless things and not thinking anything of it. I just think his dating preference [is] white women.
