From New York to Nairobi, Patoranking continues to export African reggae and dancehall to the world. There’s no doubt that Patoranking has had what many dub as an unprecedented journey so far, rising to the top of the hearts and charts of Africa well within two years. With two major endorsements and countless awards, the Foston Musik/VP Records signee is blazing a trailthat is as unique as his sound, style, and music.
On Saturday, November 7, 2015, Patoranking accomplished a fete that many did not believe could be done. Patoranking organized his own concert in Johannesburg, South Africa to officially kick off his #Born2Win Concert Series. The sold-out concert held at Johannesburg’s historic venue, Bassline, brought 1825 Ranking fans to their feet for the 2.5-hour show.
The concert featured guest performances by South Africa’s A-list acts: Khuli Chana, Bucie, Anatii, DreamTeam, and Emmy Gee. Hosted by the infamous hypeman DJ Magnum, the concert kept grooving with the short monster mix interludes by Nigeria’s own, DJ Prince. The crowd went into frenzy when StarBoy CEO Wizkid was spotted in the crowd watching the show. It’s always good to see superstars supporting their fellow stars.
Patoranking described the night as: “A dream come true. The first time I ever performed in SA was in July 2014 at Bassline. So for me, this was my homecoming and this was my small way of thanking my Mzansi fans that have been with me since Day 0. Big up to Khuli, Bucie, Anatii, DreamTeam, Emmy G, and all the artists that came to show support for my first show in South Africa. And of course, to the hot, blazing, Fiyah fans! Wow. Seeing all those people show up reaffirmed the dream. The Born2Win Africa Dream. Thank you South Africa! Thank you Africa! WHAYASAY!”
On the following day, Sunday, 8 November, Patoranking enjoyed another historicmoment becoming the first Nigerian artist ever to perform on South African Idols. Performing his hit feature, “No Lie”, alongside legendary rapper, Khuli Chana, Metro FM DJ and Idols Judge, Unathi Msengana, described the performance as “electrifying and a truly great collaboration between two of the continent’s top talents.”
After the concert, performance on SA Idols, and release of his latest hit “Make Am”, Patoranking has certainly built anticipation for his debut album, which is set for release in 2016.
