You Did Not Help Me Sing My Hit Song – Patoranking Fires At Mr Eazi
Mr Eazi is suffering a lot of backlash from both Nigerians and fellow colleagues alike. Earlier Runtown had a savage reply for the 'Skin Tight' crooner for dare saying Nigerian artistes are copying his style of music.
The latest criticism thrown at Mr Eazi comes from Patoranking who disagrees with the statement made by the latter on Capital Xtra. The 'My Woman My Everything' crooner weighed in on the trending subject during an interview at Cool FM Lagos.
Patoranking also talked about his sojourn to Ghana in search of greener pastures.
“Nigerians are very powerful people and if they like your song, you are likely to be a success in Africa. There was a point in my life that I travelled to Ghana in search of greener pastures but I ended up trekking and sleeping on the streets. I decided to come back to Nigeria. Then I released ‘Alubarika’ and ‘Girlie O.’ Both songs were a hit and in no time, I was invited to perform in Ghana, Kumasi Stadium to be precise. When they came to pick me, I counted the number of cars and it was 13. I was very surprised but was grateful to God.”
The 'Girlie O' crooner gave his on opinion as related to the influence of Ghanaian sound on Nigerian music.
“We have been having this cultural exchange with Ghana way back since the time Tuface sang ‘My love’ which featured VIP from Ghana. Tic Tac and Tony Tetuila sang ‘Fefe ne efe.’ The musical cultural exchange between Nigeria and Ghana has been going on even before I finished secondary school. It is false for Mr. Eazi to say he started that style of music because he did not help me sing my hit song, ‘My Woman.’ I did it myself and the song is a global hit song. It is the biggest afrobeat song in the Caribbean. I do not agree with his statement. It is wrong.”
