Some people probably don’t know the struggles behind the success of certain celebrities. Most of the celebrities have a story to tell about the things they went through before becoming famous. Some of them were not born into rich families and they had to do all sort of jobs to survive.

In the Nigerian music industry, Patoranking’s name should not be strange to music lovers. He is arguably one of the most successful musicians and his unique pattern of music has paved way for him.

Some of his fans might be looking at his glamorous lifestyle and the amount of properties he has acquired, while ignoring his past. Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie, popularly known as Patoranking signed his first record deal in 2010 and climbed his way up to become a record label owner in 2018.

After winning Headies award in 2014, Patoranking revealed he was working as a bricklayer and was selling rat poison at a particular time to survive. The talented singer is one of the musicians who were born into poor homes and never had anyone to support their dream financially. Due to his passion and hard work, he is now one of the most popular Reggae artistes in Nigeria.

Like other established celebrities, Patoranking has endorsement deals to his name. His first endorsement came in 2015 and it was with the company that produces Vodka drinks. He was also made an ambassador for the Lagos City Marathon, an endorsement he got in 2016.
