Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie known by his stage name Patoranking. We can easily say that he is a successful artist,but did it happen by chance? He started from the ghetto as a street dancer,dancing at carnivals. Since it was difficult breaking into the music industry,he started by conquering the underground before heading to the mainstream. He knew that in life the smaller battles had to be won before winning the greater ones. Using this rule,he had to collabo with artists in different local government in lagos state. At some point in his hustling,he slept on the streets of Ghana. With a lot of hardwork and determination,in 2013 he finally conquered the underworld and broke into the world of the mainstream. Although he had been recording features for a long time,it took him 10years to get to the world of achievers. He later said in an interview that the Underground was his root,his journey was like planting a seed,many people don't see the process that goes in,all they see is the tree. He has won lots of awards,Some of which are,AFRIMA,MTV Base,Tooxclusive and others.
