In January 2013, Mavin Records music star Dr. Sid and son of late Nigerian movie legend Justus Esiri gave BellaNaija an exclusive interview. As we do with all our interviewees, we asked about his relationship status and here is what he said.
Apart from your Mum and your sister, who is the other special woman in your life?
There’s somebody who is actually responsible for a lot of the changes I’ve gone through as an individual. She’s a woman who makes me want to be better. She’s very interested in my career, my sense of style and fitness. I owe a lot of the changes that are happening to me especially this year to her and the kind of attention that she’s given me.
That sounds sweet. How long have you been together?
About 8 months. We met under very “interesting” circumstances which I will not discuss.
The way you say “interesting” means it’s probably funny and I’m itching to hear it
Maybe when we’re getting married, I’d talk about it.
You know she is “the one” already?
What makes you say that and what qualities attracted you to her?
It’s something you just know. There was a connection. You don’t have to say words, when you look at each other, you know that it’s there. When I’m not with her, I constantly want to; I constantly try to make her proud of me in everything I do.
So many BN commenters wondered who the special lady was but even we had no clue!
Well, BN can exclusively reveal and confirm that the special lady in Dr. SID’s life is fashion editor, blogger & stylist – Simi Osomo. Simi is the former Assistant Editor of Complete Fashion Magazine and she also ran a popular fashion blog. These days, she is the Creative Director of A La Mode Fashion, a fashion consultancy that has previously worked with Rihanna, Alexandra Burke and many more stars.
Though they have tried to keep their relationship under wraps by avoiding red carpet appearances, BN has spotted the loved up pair on numerous dates in Lagos and friends of the couple have also confirmed that they are indeed together. There were even some hints via social networking sites such as this tweet by Dr Sid last year when his girlfriend received online flack for her Evening Standard feature on Nigerians’ Spending Habits in the UK.

A source tells BN “Sid was always focused but ever since he has been with Simi, he has taken things to the next level with smart investments such as his recent home purchase in Lekki, his fitness, his music and basically everything else”
Awww! We are loving this fashion and music fusion.
