Nigerian reggae-dancehall sensation Patoranking has been named as the MTV Base Artiste Of The Month for March 2015.

Following his recent string of successes including several hit singles and industry awards; MTV Base is supporting Patoranking with a month of programmes chronicling his meteoric rise to fame.


Born in 1990 in Lagos, the Ebonyi State indigene started his performing arts career as a street gig and carnival dancer. He released his first single “So Nice” in 2009 and he followed this up with “Up In The Club” in 2010. In 2012, he released “Iya Bisi” which did well and opened up opportunities to work with more artistes. 2013 saw Patoranking release “Park Well” and “Tonight” featuring Faze, which also did well.

His first breakout hit single “Alubarika” came in 2013. The song, which featured acclaimed afro-dancehall artiste Timaya became a nationwide anthem, which helped Patoranking build a large fanbase and work with a number of established artistes in a string of collaborations.

In February 2014 he signed a record deal with Foston Musik and released the original version of “Girlie O”, produced by WizzyPro. Tiwa Savage was so impressed by the track that she reached out to him to jump on the remix, which adds some polish to the song’s minimalist dancehall beat. All in all, Patoranking’s romantic charm, positivism and spirituality makes him a promising rising star in the global dancehall scene and a worthy #AoTM for MTV Base!

MTV Base will broadcast programming featuring Patoranking throughout the month of March. Join the conversation about the MTV Base artiste of the month on Twitter using the hashtag #AOTM.
