Patoranking is one of the Nigerian musicians who associates with his root and always talk about his journey to stardom.

The singer has, on many occasions, inspired his enormous fan base with his life story, coming from the slum to make it big in the music industry.

Patoranking has, however, described poverty as a fight he had no choice but to conquer in a recent podcast hosted gospel musician Tim Godfrey.

He added that he now wants other children living in the slum to believe they can as well make it like him.

“Growing up, I had always known I would make it (be successful). Not because there was everything around me, but because that was the only option I had.

Coming from the slum, poverty mindset does not give one the opportunity to think far. It was a fight and I won.

I told myself I want to become a symbol of hope to other kids living in the slum. I want them to know it is possible for them to be successful,” he shared.
