Sensational singer, John Ighodaro, aka Johnny Drille, has revealed that his wife, Rima Tahini, is his first love.
Newsdirect recalls that Mavin Records CEO, Don Jazzy, revealed in July that Johnny Drille, his signed artiste, and Rima Tahini, who is also an A&R executive with Mavin Records, were married.
It was later discovered that the revelation came a year after the couple got married secretly.
Speaking in a recent podcast interview with actress, Iyabo Ojo,the singer revealed that his wife was his first girlfriend.
He said his relationship with Tahini was love at first sight.
He said, “The first time I saw her was at one of my shows in 2018. She was sitting in the front row next to a white woman. At some point, I thought both of them were white. She [Rima] is mixed race.
“So, when I was working on another show in Abuja, we got talking. We met in October and by January, I knew I was going to marry her. And I told her I was going to marry her. For me, it was deep conviction. A lot of people will not believe this but she was my first girlfriend. I never had a girlfriend before her. I married the first woman that I said ‘I love you’ to.”
