For as long as he can remember, Patoranking was the child who would always try to entertain people by singing.
“I also loved playing football; however, as I grew older, my love for music grew stronger than anything else.”
Patoranking, whose real name is Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie, is a popular reggae dancehall singer who has collaborated with the likes of AKA, Sarkodie, Elephant Man, Tiwa Savage and Khuli Chana.
He released his debut album, God Over Everything, last year and recently performed at the Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica.
“It was a great experience - being in Jamaica as the first ever African artist to perform at the Reggae Sumfest was incredible. I look forward to performing on that stage again.”
His music has been well received not only in his home country of Nigeria, but also in the rest of Africa.
