Jaani’s complete name is Jani Johan; however, the artist prefers using his first name only. Even during interviews now when he is asked to tell his complete name, he says only Jaani.
Before entering into the world of Punjabi music, Jaani was a student of Hotel Management. Though the way he writes songs, his fans often think he might have a literature background. As a matter of fact, Jaani wrote his first song when he was in the last semester of his course.
Jaani is one of the artists of the Punjabi music world who has stolen a number of hearts. However, sorry to break all those hearts here, as Jaani already has someone special in his life. Two years ago in one of the interviews, Jaani for the very first time opened up about his love life. Though he didn’t mention the name, he confessed being in love. He said he met her during Hotel Management in Chandigarh and gradually fell in love. Allegedly, the girl he was talking about is Neha Chauhan, as the pictures of the two are seen doing the rounds every now and then on social media.
Jaani known today has a number of hit songs in his name, still has a penned track in his list. If reports are to be believed, then the first song that he wrote never got released. Reportedly the name of his first written song was ‘Kaabil’, which never saw the day’s light.
The combination of Jaani’s lyrics and Harrdy Sandhu’s vocals has always been a hit. Right from ‘Soch’ to ‘Backbone’ to ‘Dance Like’, their duo has rocked the music charts. However, did you know that ‘Soch’ wasn’t the first project on which Jaani and Harrdy collaborated? The first time these two worked together was in 2012 for Harrdy’s song ‘Tequila Shot’. The track was made by the songster’s friend, and was incomplete until Jaani gave his inputs. In one of the chat shows Jaani said that he was commuting through a bus when he completed the lyrics of ‘Tequila Shot’. And from there the never ending bond began.
