Nigerian reggae-dancehall singer and songwriter, Patoranking has said it was never rosy for him and he has tasted poverty in the past before luck shinned on him. Speaking to E-Daily Patoranking speaks on dangers of been flamboyant and more.
“Hard work together with smart work pays. Focus and consistency are key to a fruitful career and growth in all you do must reflect. Don’t get carried away with the hype, it takes much more to succeed and music is our next oil. I have learnt that Talent is just 1% and it takes way more to make a star and maintain stardom. It has also taught me the importance of tunnel vision and the fact that I can’t please everyone.”
He added that based on the principles of life he has since adopted, he has never had to regret any action he took or decision he made.
“There’s never regret, always a lesson. However, I have many wishes and one of them is that I got a chance to finish school”, he said.
Speaking further, he noted that unlike many young musicians who lose focus due to youthful exuberance after tasting limelight, his sufferings in the past have always guided his actions.
“Anybody who has suffered in the past should be wise.”
