Patrick Nneamaka Okorie, also known as Patoranking, a Nigerian singer, has shared his motivation how he started music as a career.
When discussing his early years as a singer and dancer, he revealed this in a conversation with BBC Igbo.
He remarked, “I learned a lot of things about music and culture in general in the ghetto.
“Before I started singing, I used to dance. One of the main reasons I started singing was that I liked to get the girls back then in school. Then, if you couldn’t sing, nothing for you.
“I just had to get involved in something that had to do with singing. And I loved music.”
