Afropop artist Johnny Drille stuns the public with the revelation that his wife, Rima Tahini, was his first love.
The marriage of Johnny Drille, the signed musician, and Rima Tahini, an A&R executive at Mavin Records, was officially disclosed by Don Jazzy, the CEO of Mavin Records, in July. Interestingly, this revelation emerged a year after the couple’s private wedding.
The singer revealed that his wife was his first girlfriend in a recent podcast conversation with actress Iyabo Ojo. He called their relationship “love at first sight.”
Speaking on how they met at one of his shows, Johnny Drille stated;
“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.”
“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.
