Veteran singer, Sidney Onoriode Esiri aka Dr Sid has explained why he suddenly quit music.
In an interview with BTS podcast, Dr Sid said he quit because his last last music project fell short of his expectations, leading him to venture into filmmaking.
He also added that he felt he had achieved ultimate success with music by receiving awards, touring the world and delivering hit records.
“And when I put out the last body of work that I did, it did not get the response that I was expecting.
“I have always wanted to make film so for me, that was the next evolution in my career. So I had to make a conscious decision, say you know what?
“I have given music time, I can always go back to it if I want to but I want to give time into this film but then while doing that as well, I am also a gamer.
“I happened to be in America at a gaming conference and I realised that gaming was a $3 billion industry, the gaming industry makes more money than music and film combined.
“So I said to myself why are we dulling on this in Africa? So I came back and I started a company to build the Nigerian gaming echo system,” he said.
