Photos: Patoranking closes out 2021 with show-stopping performance at Big Name Concert
It was a night of jaw dropping performances and lyrical excellence at Patoranking’s Big Name concert organized by Toro Entertainment Company on the 26th of December 2021 at the Eko Convention Centre
After over a month's worth of publicity, Patoranking did not disappoint. The reggae dancehall king stepped out on stage with an energetic entrance, made possible by his talented dancers and his reggae live band. He started off the night with one of his classics; Suh Different and then went on to perform his infectious record, "Daniella Whine" from his GOE album which featured Jamaican Dancehall Superstars, Elephant Man and Koshens. Of course, the night would not have been complete without performing I'm in love - but this time however, Patoranking went all out, adding a unique and creative twist to the song.
Throwing it all the way back to 2015, this music legend went on to perform his epic hit; My Woman, My Everything.
Another exciting highlight of the show was when Adekunle Gold came upstage to perform High which originally featured Davido. Flavour doubled the energy with a live performance of his songs including Levels, Egedege, and Ijele.
Thrilling the fans further, legendary comedian Basket Mouth stepped on the stage to deliver a rib-cracking performance just before Patoranking made another appearance to perform his much-loved song, Confirm before finally telling the audience What Happened in Abule and then performing Celebrate Me.
One moment the attendees will not forget in a hurry was when artiste and singer-songwriter Timaya jumped on stage to perform snippets of his songs Balance, I can’t kill myself, Telli Person and Cold Outside featuring Buju. Patoranking went emotional on his long time friend and brother Timaya, telling the audience that the artist had a big impact on his career over the years, even going as far as giving him a place to stay.
Afterwards, the duo performed the song that changed both their lives and financial statuses, epic throwback classic, ‘Alubarika’.
The final surprise performance of the night was some cultural praise from artist Kcee which took the audience on a joyride all the way to the East.
Patoranking definitely had the time of his life performing for his Lagos fans as he took to his Instagram account to say, "Thank you LAGOS. 🙏 Love you forever! God bless everyone who came out to support & the team. Let's do it again ❤."
The Big Name concert is part of the lineup of Stacked December concerts which took place across Lagos in December 2021. The event is organised by Toro Entertainment Company.
