Patoranking
The Nigerian reggae- dancehall artist has high esteem for Ghanaian music and culture, disclosed in an interview recently. He said it was not easy living in Ghana without his parents but he cannot deny the fact that he loves and appreciates everything Ghanaian.  
Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie known by his stage name Patoranking, was a student in Ghana at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) and said his parents had sent him to school but left to pursue his career in music.

“I love Ghana; it is a peaceful country. I lived there alone. It was not easy but I loved living in Ghana” he said.
The reggae-dancehall artiste came on the music scene with his song “Alubarika” that featured Timaya, his country man and mentor on it under Dem Mama Records.
On February 9, 2015, Patoranking announced  through Instagram that he signed a distribution deal with VP Records. 



Describing his feelings for Ghana, he said, “I love their music and cultural heritage. They have a strong music scene than Nigeria and it is one of those amazing things that attracted me”
If you know Ghana really well, you would agree with Patoranking perfectly. The food, the music, the people and how hospitable they are is very unique on the African continent. Ghana indeed is the gateway to Africa.
