an American musician of Nigerian descent, is not an exception to the rule that
first love always leaves an imprint.
A fan questioned him on TikTok about whether his hit song BAMBI was based on real life events. In a reply post to the fan, Jidenna disclosed that the song was about his first love when he was in high school.
He stated that despite being a young boy, he was a thoughtful person, which is why he used to address his girlfriend as dear. Over time, he changed his mind and began referring to her as Bambi.
“It is based on the first love of my life, my high school sweetheart. Bambi was my nickname for her. I used to say my dear a lot. I was always an old soul. I was like 16 or 17 talking about my dear. I said it one day and I was like you know what I’mma stop calling you dear and we’ll call you Bambi. So it is based on a real woman and a real story.”
Jidenna’s debut studio album, THE CHIEF, contains the song BAMBI, which has 30 million views on YouTube so far.
