One of the factors that determines the success of an artiste is his ability to get corporate brand endorsement, and joining the long list of famous Nigerian artistes on the payroll of telecommunications companies is, Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie, also known as Patoranking, as he is now one of the brand ambassadors of Airtel.
In addition, Patoranking has been named as one of the artistes who will be performing at the Born 2 Win concert, holding at Bassline, Johannesbourg, South Africa come November 7.
Patoranking started his musical career doing underground collaborations with artistes such as XProject, Konga, Slam and Reggie Rockstone. He signed a record deal with K-Solo’s Igberaga Records in 2010, releasing Up in D Club under the outfit.
Patoranking became a protégé of Dem Mama Record’s honcho, Timaya, after collaborating with him on his song, Alubarika. In February 2014, he signed a record deal with Foston Musik and released Girlie O, a single that put him in the limelight. On February 9, Patoranking announced via Instagram that he signed a distribution deal with VP Records.
Since the release of his Girlie O single, he has been on the rise and looks ready for greater things in the Nigerian music industry.
