VP Records Superstar, Patoranking states that he wants all his flowers now that he is alive in new single “Celebrate Me”. Many have observed that there is this growing trend where people receive exceptional accolades only after their passing. There is such an outpouring of love and affectations that were unavailable while they lived. Their social media accounts receive an influx of followers, their adulations are sung from here to the moon and friends and family announce their regret of not having spent enough time or thanking them enough while they were still alive. Tears flow, praises are sung but to what end really? Who is gone is gone?

In “Celebrate Me” produced by Yung Willis, Patoranking wants nothing of such, he needs all his flowers now that he is here and able to actually receive them.

He says;

Celebrate me nah when I dey alive
Appreciate me nah when I dey alive
No be say when I leave this life
You go dey fake am for my wife
