Patoranking Becomes the First Continental African Artist to Perform at Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica.
Nigerian afropop star Patoranking became the first artist from Africa to perform at Reggae Sumfest, the biggest Reggae festival in the world.
The lineup included artists Movado, Tory Lanez and more but Patoranking was sure to bring a special African flavor to the stage.
Jamaicans have been very receptive to Patoranking since “My Woman, My Everything” dropped.
Patoranking expressed his gratitude through an Instagram post:
#History–> My Kids will be Taught in school How their Father was the first African Artiste to perform on the Biggest Reggae Festival in The world 🙏🙏 If You Believe it you can achieve it…I pray this Open doors for my fellow colleagues/African Artistes,I may never have come this far if I don't have doubting Thomas dem/haters but Plz don't stop Doubting or Hating I Really need More of That, Am already in 2018 and my New video Just Dropped….Welcome to my World….Just Getting Started #Skylevel
Hopefully this is just the beginning of the crossover of fans between reggae and AfroBeat. It would be cool to see a dope collaboration come from this experience.
