Sporting a new hair cut and a slimmer waistline, Dr Sid is back with his latest hit ‘Afefe’, which trended on twitter last week. After his dazzling performance alongside Wande Coal at the ‘Love Afrobeats Festival’, headlined by P Square, Dr Sid, real name Sidney Onoriode Esiri isn’t wasting any time with his new music.
The ‘Chocolate’ crooner flew into the UK to shoot the video directed by renowned director Sesan Ogunro. Set for release at the end of next month, ‘Afefe’, which means ‘Breeze’, is a clever play on a Nigerian proverb, while Dr Sid promises to cool down the ladies in the catchy chorus. This is the latest track to be released and does not feature on the new Mavin Records album ‘Solar Plexus’. It’s a stand a lone track made especially for the clubs- a certified club banger produced by BlayzeBeats.
Since the launch of the Mavin Records label, Dr Sid has ‘Chocolate’, ‘YOLO’ and ‘CPR’ sizzling under his belt already. These songs sit alongside his label mates Tiwa Savage, Wande Coal and D’Prince, which were all produced by the multiple-award winning super producer and Mavin Records Label Boss Don Jazzy.
“It’s been a whirlwind since the launch of Mavin Records”, says Dr Sid onset of the shoot. “We all have been working hard on our individual projects. I’m just really excited to be getting my new material out. ‘Afefe’ was a fun one to work on. It’s a party track that has a mad beat that will get everyone moving. Blayze is a great producer and Sesan is a hot director. So hopefully people will receive this well. I will also be shooting something very special for my three tracks on the Solar Plexus album so watch this space.”
‘Afefe’ will feature on his untitled album, tipped to be released early 2013. Until then stay tuned for more music and new videos by the ‘Over The Moon’ Mavin artist.
