“Nigerian star is manifesting greatness on his new album World Best” 
Rolling Stone

“Patoranking delivers yet another sweet ode to women who deserve to be celebrated for their everyday contributions to others’ lives. With a sultry verse from British-Nigerian singer Zion Foster, and Dhannyjazz’s sumptuous saxophone leading the production, the Nigerian star serenades the only lady in his life…[in regards to “Women Of The Year]”
– Billboard

“Lagos-born alchemist has gone all out”
– Complex

“A fusion of reggae, Afrobeats, and dancehall, galala has been popular in Nigeria for years…Patoranking sounds ready to help it take the next step. ‘Tonight’ makes its case for the perfect party on top of gurgling organ melodies & an irresistible beat”
The Fader

“solidifying his position as one of the big voices in contemporary African music.”

“one of Africa’s most intriguing musical exports… places an intentionality into his music, and an innate self-awareness for his potential for love and greatness has never been in doubt…unifying the shared experiences between his African home base and our Black siblings in the Caribbean diaspora.”
– Native Mag

 “…makes you want to dance but also resonates deeply with its powerful messages of love, unity, and social consciousness. Patoranking’s ability to effortlessly switch between genres and infuse his tracks with his unmistakable charisma showcases his versatility and artistry. His impact on the music industry is undeniable…using his platform for positive change makes him not just an amazing artist but also a true inspiration”
– LadyGunn

Raking in over 500 million YouTube views, a quarter of a billion DSP streams for his previous 2020 album Three, Nigerian star Patoranking lives up to his anointed moniker “World Best” from his devoted fans, a following of over 8.8 million on Instagram alone. Through his long standing reputation of layering afrobeats, dancehall and reggae, the Lagos-born artist is in a class of his own. He was instantly drawn to the pulsating native rhythms of galala, an uptempo reggae-inspired music and dance that took over his streets in the 1980s and 1990s. His fourth studio album, aptly titled World Best, is a masterfully modern culmination of this genre fusion – driven by love, life and conscious lyricism.

On World Best (out Sept 6, 2023), Patoranking taps international icons like American hip hop legend Ludacris, Jamaica’s own dancehall don Beenie Man and Kingston’s unruly boss Popcaan. His homegrown sound is nurtured with more talented collaborators hailing from Africa – including hitmakers Kizz Daniel (Nigeria) and Diamond Platnumz(Tanzania) as well as rising stars Victony (Nigeria), Gyakie (Ghana) and Zion Foster (UK by way of Nigeria). From lush instrumentation to synthesized beats, the LP’s range of production holds a celebratory tone and is provided by an all-star cast of up-and-coming and well-known African producers. The list includes Phantom (Nigeria), Kel P (Nigeria), Killertunes (Nigeria), C-Tea (Ghana), Mix Master Garzy (Ghana) and many more.
World Best is available now on all platforms and follows Patoranking’s albums: God Over Everything (2016), Wilmer (2019) and Three (2020).
