Patoranking has never been one to shy away from his past and humble beginnings. In fact, he embraces it and sports it like a fitting cap whenever he goes, never missing a chance to share his story. And this is yet again, he digs into his roots for another thrilling single, ‘Abule’, his first since his “Wilmer” album and the lead single for his just-released album “Three”.
“I’m proud to be from my abule, because to have made it coming from there it’s only by God’s grace. It’s made me who I am today and it’s part of my story. So I waste no opportunity to let people know about my ghetto,” he says in an interview with Ebro Darden on Beats1 Radio.
“I feel it’s important through this new song to give my fans a chance to celebrate their own abules. And to protect their abules, too. Back in May, my team and I partnered with Ebele & Anyichuks Foundation to go to many ghettos across Lagos to give away masks and relief items. It’s important we stay safe and do our part to protect.”
With this video, Patoranking takes us to the thick of the hood and ghetto life with energetic street dance routines on full display. Patoranking is later found performing at an overcrowded party which is then invaded by armed goons and briefly struck with a power outage. But regardless of these hitches, the show picks up like nothing happened and goes on.
