My wife was my first girlfriend ever - Johnny Drille

My wife was my first girlfriend ever - Johnny Drille

Nigerian singer, John Ighodaro, popularly known as Johnny Drille has revealed that his wife, Rima Tahini, is his first love.

Speaking on the development, a year after they got married in private, Johnny Drille said his relationship with Tahini was love at first sight.

In a recent podcast with Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, the singer revealed that his wife was his first girlfriend.

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.”




However, when if he was a virgin when he met his woman, the singer laughed and jokingly evaded the question. Even though he never had a girlfriend, he sure knew to keep his business private when the time came.

It is worthy of note that Drille kept his relationship out of the public eye throughout their relationship, even until their wedding day. On top of that, the couple secretly got married in 2022 under wraps and did not disclose that until July 2023, when they marked their first anniversary.

The announcement came as a huge shock to Nigerians, as many were unaware of the fact that he was in a relationship, much less married for a whole year. There was little information about their relationship, but at least now his fans know when and how they met.
