Reggae-dancehall in Nigeria is nothing to write home about now unlike the time of Majek Mashek and the likes, Timaya slightly threaded the path but carved out a niched from it, but Patoranking has been able to fuse afro to reggae to create something smooth which I refer as modern reggae-dancehall in Nigeria.

Patoranking is an Ebonyi State native who was born and reared in Ijegun-Egba Satellite Town.

He began his musical career by working informally with musicians including XProject, Konga, Slam, and Reggie Rockstone.
