Mavin Records’ Dr Sid recently sat with Tunde and Oscar on “The Whole Truth” to tell his story of early beginnings, struggling with school, working with Don Jazzy, losing his father, and life after the peak of Mohits & Mavin.
The rapper cum singer also touched on managing his mental health in the difficult era of social media relevance, and shared his experience making some of Naija’s favorite anthems.
In his words:-
“I have had a period of real difficulty. I have had a period of financial difficulty. I was making music, nothing was working. I wasn’t getting booked at shows. Of my own doing, I didn’t have passive income. I didn’t have anything outside of music. I had health issues; I had high blood pressure and a mild stroke last year. I almost died.”
“At that point, you think to yourself ‘What’s going on?’ I’ve struggled. In struggling you understand that the only person responsible for the change is you. Same thing with Naija as a whole. The issue with this country starts with individuals.”
