My first romantic relationship was with my wife, stated singer Johnny Drille.

Renowned artist John Ighodaro, known as Johnny Drille, disclosed that his spouse, Rima Tahini, holds the special place as his first love.

This revelation comes after Mavin Records CEO, Don Jazzy, announced in July that Johnny Drille and Rima Tahini, who also serves as an A&R executive at Mavin Records, had tied the knot. Interestingly, the public only became aware of their secret marriage a year later.

During a recent podcast interview with actress Iyabo Ojo, the singer shared that his wife was not just his first love but also his initial girlfriend, emphasizing that their connection 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.”
