He grew up with his family in the satellite city of Ijegun-Egba and then moved to Ebute Metta. He attended the Citizen Epe Comprehensive School and then attended the Jibril Martin Grammar School in Iponri. After graduating from high school, Patoranking started as a dancer in street traffic jams and carnivals. He quickly started singing and released his first song in May 2012, a fusion of the Fuji Ballroom and the song called “Iya Bisi,” starring Qdota and Kbaje. After signing with K’Solo Igberaga Records, he released another song called “Up in D Club.”
His work caught the attention of Timaya, Managing Director of Dem Mama Records, who helped him express with the sound of a song considered his pioneering track.

Fast-growing star Foston Musik wrote a paper and released the acclaimed single “Girlie O.” The visual was shot in London, with Patoranking as a hero, saving his partner’s neighbor, avoiding domestic violence, and expressing love for him. A few months later, Tiwa Savage Girlie introduced The Remix. Tiwa, in the interview, revealed that she fell in love with the original song and teamed up with Patoranking for mixing. Their collaboration was a massive success because it was widely promoted and featured at various countdown events in Africa.
