Something about filmmaking seems to be attracting Nigerian musicians to the other side these days (raise your hand if you saw what i did there). Last year, we got news of R&B singer, Banky W, attending the New York Film Academy. A few weeks ago, we also got word that rapper, Ikechukwu, had also enrolled in the academy.
The latest kid on the block is Sidney Esiri better known by his stage name, Dr Sid.
Dr Sid has graduated from the New York Film Academy, and he is has released his first work as a filmmaker, titled, The Application (it was also his final project at the NYFA).
Written and Directed by Dr Sid, The Application is the story of a young man who fails to take action and this results in a great loss.
It really is not a bad one, considering he’s just starting out. With time and a lot of hard work, Dr Sid might just become a force to be reckoned with in the film industry.
Watch the 8-minute film below and judge for yourselves.
