Several weeks after the infamous issues between Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz, Mavin pop star Dr Sid has given his side of the story on allegations that he had a sexual relationship with the Eminado singer.
Recall that on Thursday, April 28, 2016, Tunji ‘Tee Billz’ Balogun caused a major stir after his now-deleted Instagram posts wherein he revealed messy details in his marriage with Tiwa, in addition to his allegations that she’s had illicit affairs with Don Jazzy, Dr Sid and Tuface Idibia.
In return, the Eminado singer granted an all-revealing interview on Friday, April 29, 2016 wherein she spoke to Azuka Ogujiuba of ThisDay and details from her revelation have remained subjects of major debates both online and in the media.
Things eventually cooled off between them with Tiwa continuing her journey into further musical greatness with a soon-to-be-revealed music management deal with Roc Nation and a US tour in promotion of her RED album in July 2016.
In between, Dr Sid has spoken on the situation and his response to allegations that he had an affair with Tiwa is as real as it gets.
In a recent chat with The Sun, the Surulere crooner stated that Tiwa is a good friend of his and a hard worker even as he hopes she sorts out issues with Tee Billz.
“Tiwa Savage is, and will always be, a good friend of mine.
“She is a hard worker. All we need to do is to pray for them and hope that everything is sorted out soon. Tiwa also said a lot in her interview, so I am sure she has cleared the air on that. On my own, my wife and I are good. Everybody is fine.”
Dr SID has had an interesting music career, first starting off with foremost hip hop group Da Trybes under the tutelage of eLDee The Don in the ‘90s into the early 2000s and then joining forces with the defunct Mo’Hits Records under Dbanj and Don Jazzy.
With the fall out between Don Jazzy and Dbanj in 2012, SID continued with Jazzy under the new Mavin Records imprint and it’s been a fun ride seeing the singer and songwriter churn out hit after hit in the ever evolving Nigerian music industry.
Born into a family of creatives, Sidney ‘Dr SID’ Onoriode Esiri was raised by the legendary Nollywood actor Justus Esiri and a fashion designer mother.
He trained at the University of Ibadan as a dentist but has remained within the Nigerian entertainment industry as a singer, rapper, songwriter and performer for over a decade.
In recent times, SID has ventured into video production in a bid to spread his tentacles some more in the industry and he has been positively received since making the switch.
The 36-year-old is married to Simi Osomo. The pair tied the knot in August, 2014 at the Ikoyi Baptist church after which they held a stellar reception at the Oriental Hotel, Lagos.
Their wedding saw a great attendance from fellow celebrities as well as friends and family members.
