Patoranking Opens Up, Reveals How Ghetto Upbringing Influenced His Music
Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie, the singer and songwriter who is popularly known as Patoranking has revealed that his songs and songwriting talent are largely influenced by the environment he grew up in.
Patoranking who lately dropped a brand new project, made this known while fielding questions from Pan-african Music content creator.
He made reference to his hit track, ‘Abule’ off his latest album, ‘Three’, explaining that the song is a sort of ode to life in the ghetto.
The dancehall artiste said that the song was to show how life occurs in the ghetto.
“Abule simply means hood or ghetto. So when making a song, all I do is just have a reflection about where I come from and then I write. I was thinking about the party life in the ghetto, how we party, how it is, the things that happen there.”
