Watch BTS Video Of Guardian Life Cover Featuring Patoranking
Patoranking, who started off as a dancer in the streets, talks about his love for reggae as he was primarily exposed to Bob Marley as a child. He says “Shout out to my neighbour” who he thanks for his love for Reggae. The singer goes on to explain the “Galala” sound, which he describes as “our own form of dancehall”. He makes no bone about his love for the music genre, which rules majority of the Lagos ghettos.
“Music for me started at an early age, I started as a dancer,” he says.”I was dancing to many sounds, but most especially the Galala sounds…. I fell in love with it because I was in the ghetto and Galala music runs the ghetto.”
