The life of a star is probably like that of a hawk, travelling far away from family just to satisfy fans and, Johnny Drille is the latest star to tell us how much he’s had to sacrifice and how long he’s stayed away from home.
Born John Ighodaro to two secondary school teachers in Benin City, Edo state, Johnny Drille shared an Instagram reel on Sunday, September 18 depicting his homecoming– a surprise visit back home after a show in Asaba, Delta state– the first time this year, and the first time he’s seeing his parents since the year started.
The Mavin Records singer was a joyous sight to behold for his family, as they were overwhelmed with joy, particularly his dad and little sister, with their jaw dropping in awe immediately they sighted the singer.
Drille accompanied the reel with a nostalgic caption: “First time seeing my parents this year. Crazy how I used to see them everyday and now I literally look for any available time to travel to see them. It makes me feel bad that as I am busy living out my life, I am missing out on theirs… every time I see them, I can see that they’ve gotten a little older.”
“I guess life is about balance and this is a gentle reminder to make time for the people you love.”
“P.S. They didn’t know I was coming, did a show in Asaba and decided to take the chance to go home to see them 😊”
