Wow… This is really inspiring. The bricklayer/rat poison seller of yesterday is now one of the biggest music acts in Africa. This just tells everyone to believe in their dreams no matter were they are today. Last night at the Headies, Patoranking won the well deserved ‘Next Rated’ awards. That earned him a brand new Hyundai. When he was called up to receive his award, here’s what he said:
“When I sang ” When I moved from nothing to something, that is my story…I meant it..I would like to say something..2 years ago, I was living in a one room, now, i’m living (crowd cheered…Lekki) somewhere around.
He then decided to speak in pidgin English and said..
“If I tell you say I be dey sell rat killer, you go believe? If I tell you say IDO bricklayer for Lagos you go believe? Don’t let anyone stop you from achieving your dreams..
He walked away as the crowd gave him a standing ovation! Big congrats to him! That’s honour well deserved!
