Late popular actor and defunct Village Headmaster star, Justus Esiri, may not be currently too happy in his grave. And the reason is this – the marriage between his dentist turned singer son, Sidney Esiri, better known as Dr Sid, and wife, Simi, has packed up.
The union which produced two daughters obviously didn’t end on a happy note. In fact, prior to the bride making their separation public, some unpleasant tales had been seeping out of the estranged couple’s home.
Simi, however, confirmed the end of their five-year-old union via her Instagram account: @simiesiri: “I have been consciously silent on this but as some people are out to defame my character and integrity, with a fabrication of the facts, I have chosen to address it once and for all.
“A lot of you must have known for some time now that Sid and I are no longer together and are moving forward separately with a tough decision to divorce.
“Our priority will now be working together as co-parents in raising our two beautiful girls.”
The duo got married in a star-studded ceremony in August 2014.
Their first daughter arrived in May 2015 and the second in December 2018.
Meanwhile, Simi has also deleted all their wedding photos, including the anniversary posts, from her handle. She has equally unfollowed her Dr. Sid on Instagram.
Dr. Sid whose most popular hit is Pop Champagne, unfortunately, hasn’t been able to come up with new hits after that. He is with Don Jazzy’s record label, Mavin Records.
