Sad news for the ladies, Dr SID is now officially off the market.
The Pop singer announced via his Instagram page that he popped the big question to his girlfriend Simi Osomo and yes, she did say yes! SID and Simi got engaged in the beautiful city of Venice in Italy.
The happy couple have been coasting Western to Southern Europe this week. Their first stop was in Paris, France.
Dr SID (real name Sidney Esiri) decided to go public with his relationship only a few weeks ago, after he posted photos of Simi on his Instagram page. He later stepped out in public with the lawyer turned fashionista when they attended Pop singer Emma Nyra’s birthday party on July 18, 2013. Up until now, he has not been linked with any other woman as a love interest.
‘Out of respect for her and her family, I’ve kept her out of the new as much as possible’, Dr SID said in a recent interview with Toolz, adding, ‘For her it’s new territory’.
But SID says it’s been over a year of dating, with the couple going public with their relationship, it looks like Simi has grown some tough skin.
Interestingly, the dentist turned singer is the first of the Mavin bachelors to get engaged. He’ll be leaving the likes of label boss Don Jazzy, D’Prince and Wande Coal to the ladies.
Dr SID joins label mate Tiwa Savage and some other popular names like Pop star Peter Okoye, stylist Toyin Lawani, Tinsel actress Mimi Orijekwe and Bez who have all been hitched this year.
Congrats to them!
