Early life and music career edit

Patoranking was born and raised in Ijegun-Egba Satellite Town but has family roots in Onicha, Ebonyi State. He attended Citizen Comprehensive College in Epe, Lagos and later enrolled at Jibril Martin Memorial Grammar School in Iponri.[2]

Patoranking moved to Ghana in 2007 to pursue his education after gaining admission to the "University of Cape Coast".[8] but dropped out due to financial reasons.[9]

After dropping out of the University, he moved to Osu, a suburb of Accra, Ghana where he met Lanky, an entrepreneur who signed Patoranking to his label, Black Rhythmz Entertainment. Whilst signed to Black Rhythmz Entertainment, he was working at a restaurant opposite Frankies Osu and had another job at Accra Mall.[10] After recording a few songs on Lanky's label, the relationship came to an end and he returned to Nigeria.

Upon his return to Nigeria, Okorie joined K-Solo's Igberaga Records in 2012, where he recorded "Iya Bisi", featuring Qdot and Kbaj. The Drumphase-produced song is a fusion of dancehall and "fuji". Patoranking told Entertainment Express that Qdot and Kbaj helped compose the song by sharing ideas with him.[11] Other singles recorded with K-Solo's label included Tonight, Park Well, and So Nice.[citation needed]

Speaking on the origin of his name in a 2012 interview with Entertainment Express, Patrick said his stage name was given to him by a Jamaican artist whom he met at Alpha Beach in Lagos. Patoranking has cited Buju Banton, Bob Marley, Fela Kuti, Lucky Dube, Chaka Demus, Majek Fashek, Blackky, Blackface, Tuface and Marvelous Benjy as his key musical influences. In the aforementioned interview with Entertainment Express, he described his music as a morally inclined variation of dancehall and said it references socio-political issues.[11]

It was not until 12 September 2013, that Okorie's life changed with the release of the audio and video for "Alubarika".[12] The song literally translates to "God's Blessings" and features vocals from Timaya. The music video for "Alubarika" was shot by AJE Films and ran for 4 minutes and 16 seconds. According to an article posted by Victor Akande of The Nation, Patoranking described the song as a summary of his life as a musician and said it opened doors for him in terms of building a fan base and working with established musicians.[13]

In February 2014, Patoranking signed a record deal with Foston Musik and ended his affiliations with Dem Mama Records. During an interview with Toolz on NdaniTV's The Juice, Timaya said Patoranking left his label and was never officially signed.[14][15] On 4 February 2014, Patoranking released "Girlie O", a song produced by "WizzyPro". The music video for the song was shot and directed in London by Moe Musa; it was released on 5 February 2014.[16] In the music video, Patoranking liberates his next-door neighbor from domestic violence by expressing his innate feelings to her.[17]

Foston Musik released the Tiwa Savage-assisted "Girlie O" (Remix) on 19 May 2014 to critical acclaim.[18] It debuted at No. 9 on MTV Base's Official Naija Top 10 chart. Tiwa Savage told Ehiz of MTV Base she admires Patoranking's music and decided to reach out to him to do the remix.[19] The music video for "Girlie O" (Remix) was also shot and directed in London by Moe Musa.[20] Joey Akan of Pulse Nigeria said, "On the new remix, the basic winning elements were not discarded. They were retained and improved. The beat, chorus, and dynamism were held onto, and major work put into the lyrics."[21]

Patoranking was featured on Seyi Shay's "Murda" single alongside Shaydee. The song was produced by Dokta Frabz and released on 1 April 2014.[22][23] On 11 May 2014, the music video for "Murda" was uploaded onto Vevo. It was directed by Meji Alabi for JM Films.[24]

Patoranking's "Daniella Whine" and "My Woman, My Everything" singles charted on MTV Base Official Naija Top 10 chart. The former debuted at No. 4 in May and topped the chart at No. 1 in June,[25][26] while the latter "My Woman, My Everything" also appeared on the chart, peaking at No. 2.[27][28][29]

In a bid to reconnect with his Ghanaian roots and revive his fanbase in Ghana, returned to Ghana and featured on the remix of Stonebwoy's single, "Pull Up" in 2014.[30]

Managers: Rickie Davies for International and Chimdinma Maduforo for Africa.
