This summer, dancehall-reggae
deejay/singer Patoranking (born Patrick Nnamemeka Okorie) has one of
most popular tunes in Nigeria, “Girlie O (Remix),” which features the
vocal stylings of Naija pop queen Tiwa Savage. Prior to this year, he
had been recording for years in the underground, gaining a reputation
for thoughtful, spiritual lyrics over airy dancehall riddims and
one-drop reggae.
His peek through the door before his
big break came in 2013, when his collaboration with singer Timaya,
“Alubarika,” made a few ripples. The reggae jam, whose title can be
translated to “god’s blessings,” features a sunny melody and
Patoranking’s magnetizing patois. He said in an interview that the song
was about “the transition from ghetto to hero and grass to grace”.
In February 2014, he signed a record
deal with Foston Musik and released the original verson of “Girlie O”
produced by WizzyPro. In its video, Patoranking comforts a woman
affected by domestic violence. Tiwa Savage was so impressed by the track
that she reached out to him to jump on the remix, which adds some spit
and polish to the song’s minimalist dancehall beat. All and all,
Patoranking’s romantic charm, positivism and spirituality makes him a
promising rising star in the global dancehall scene.
