I Married The First Woman That I Said ‘I Love You’ To — Johnny Drille
Nigerian Artist, and Mavin Record Signee, John Ighodaro, aka Johnny Drille, has revealed during a recent podcast interview with actress, Iyabo Ojo, that his wife, Rima Tahini who is also an A&R executive with Mavin Records, 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.”
