Before his breakthrough single, ‘Alubarika’, Nigerian dancehall singer Patoranking has been in the industry under K-Solo’s Igberaga Records. He didn’t hit limelight even after dropping five singles ‘So nice’, ‘Up in the club’, ‘Iya Bisi’, ‘Tonight’ and ‘Park well’, on the record label.
Speaking to Showtime, the Amari Musiq boss said there were many times he felt like giving up on his music career.
“There were moments I was tempted to quit but they were brief because I focused more on the possibilities than the reasons I should quit. I knew this was what I wanted to do with my life and I was bent on succeeding at it”, he said
The musician who is set to release his second studio album ‘Wilmer‘ explained that ‘Alubarika’ gave him the courage to keep pushing on for more success.
“Alubarika made me even more challenged to succeed. It made me hungry to be better and curious to learn the things I needed to be the best I can be”, he said.
Patoranking added that he always expected to be famous like he is today, “Yes, I expected it because I had not only prayed about it. I realized that through my lyrics, I had spoken it into existence.”
