I slept on the streets in the Ghana- Dancehall singer, Patoranking recounts struggles before stardom
By Patricia Uyeh,
Dancehall singer, Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie, popularly called by his stage name Patoranking has had his own share fair of challenges before rising into stardom.
During a chat with Cool FM, Lagos, the singer revealed that at some point in his life, he travelled to Ghana in search of greener pastures only to end up sleeping on the streets.
“Nigerians are very powerful people and if they like your song, you are likely to be a success in Africa. There was a point in my life that I travelled to Ghana in search of greener pastures but I ended up trekking and sleeping on the streets. I decided to come back to Nigeria. Then I released ‘Alubarika’ and ‘Girlie O.’ Both songs were a hit and in no time, I was invited to perform in Ghana, Kumasi Stadium to be precise. When they came to pick me, I counted the number of cars and it was 13. I was very surprised but was grateful to God,”
