24-year-old Patorankin whose real name is Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie got into limelight of the Nigerian music industry barely 14 months ago.

The artiste who confessed that he was once a rat poison seller has transformed into one of the big names in the industry , he is currently MTV Base artiste of the month.

In an interview with Punch on March 21, 2015 Patorankin who has revived the reggae genre opened up about wh he choose this style of music. “One of the reasons I chose reggae even though it might sound funny is because of the girls. I remember back then in secondary school, if you did not know how to mime songs, you could not get the girls and I like standing out.”

The 'Girlie O' singer is known to have female artistes Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shay dance erotically for him, among the female singers who ‘twerk’ for him on stage.

Patoranking also opened up about that marriage is not on the cards for him as he does not have a girlfriend. “If I tell you that I want to marry right now, would you not lie me down and beat me? I am single and ready to mingle. Right now, I am just concerned about my career and family. Marriage is not in the question for me. I don’t have a girlfriend. I am not a promiscuous fellow and if I ever need to blow off steam, I would rather make use of soap in the bathroom than be with random girls” .

Patorankin denies claims he has a girlfriend which may imply that he is no longer dating the girl he was with last year who goes by the name Leila.
