Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie, better known as Patoranking, a Nigerian reggae-dancehall singer and composer, stirs emotions by claiming that signs from the late Mohbad could have been detected if listeners had paid attention to his lyrics.
Patoranking was asked about Nigerian music and how he gives to humanity through his songs rather than pursuing a flashy life and disregarding his people, as some artists do.
In response, he emphasised his street connection and advised listeners to pay attention to song lyrics.
He used Mohbad as an example, implying that if listeners had paid more attention to lyrics, they would have recognised signs in Mohbad’s music.
His statement was: “If we had paid attention to the lyrics, we would have seen signs from Mohbad.”
Following his statement, concerned individuals flooded the comment section to react to his words.
See some reactions below:
@MAYORWATT01: “This is sad we just wanna dance to beat we no too Dey listen to lyrics again facts.”
@SimonEwoh: “Make everybody rest abeg, what really matters is justice for mohbad family. Imole as found peace.”
@IamBlaccode: “Music has a way of speaking truths hidden in melodies, how may Nigerians learn to read lyrics when the beat is there to make the craze. Mohbad’s lyrics have been dropping clues all along, weaving stories of life’s ups and downs. Maybe this will make Nigerians learn to read lyrics.”
@DRDammy4: “Abegi enough of this lies, we all have been listening to oladips lyrics b4 now even some of his live chat and that he is in some deep shit but nobody cares. Na business as usual, had it been he died completely same thing would ve been said again now he survived did anybody care?”
