I Once Slept On The Streets Of Ghana

Published

on

Nigerian singer, Patoranking has opened up on his tough walk to fame in the last 10 years as he once slept on the street of Ghana.

Even as he has attained fame and become a celeb, not many people would know that dancehall singer, Patoranking, had been in the music business for over a decade. Interestingly, the young man has seen the other side of life in his quest to climb the stardom ladder.
While speaking on a programme on Cool FM, Lagos, the singer revealed that at a point in his life, he travelled to Ghana in search of greener pastures only to end up sleeping on the streets.
“Nigerians are very powerful people and if they like your song, you are likely to be a success in Africa. There was a point in my life that I travelled to Ghana in search of greener pastures but I ended up trekking and sleeping on the streets. I decided to come back to Nigeria. Then I released ‘Alubarika’ and ‘Girlie O.’ Both songs were a hit and in no time, I was invited to perform in Ghana, Kumasi Stadium to be precise. When they came to pick me, I counted the number of cars and it was 13. I was very surprised but was grateful to God,” he said.
Patoranking used the opportunity to disagree with his colleague, Mr. Eazi, who had once said that Ghanian music was heavily influencing Nigerian sounds as well as claiming that most Nigerian singers were copying his style as he was the one that popularised the fusion of Ghanaian and Nigerian sounds.
 “We have been having this cultural exchange with Ghana way back since the time Tuface sang ‘My love’ which featured VIP from Ghana. Tic Tac and Tony Tetuila sang ‘Fefe ne efe.’ The musical cultural exchange between Nigeria and Ghana has been going on even before I finished secondary school. It is false for Mr. Eazi to say he started that style of music because he did not help me sing my hit song, ‘My Woman.’ I did it myself and the song is a global hit song. It is the biggest afrobeat song in the Caribbean. I do not agree with his statement. It is wrong.”

Reality TV Star, Cee-C

Former BBNaija housemate, Cynthia Nwadiora, also known as Cee-C, has silenced those doubting her educational qualifications.

Taking to Instagram, the law graduate uploaded throwback and recent photos of herself cladded in a black robe, bib and wig.

The 28-year-old reality TV Star captioned the image with the words;

“How it started” vs “How it is going.

Still a “Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria”.

Six years post call!”.

Reacting to the post, a follower left an unwarranted comment as she asked the reality TV star if she actually passed her “Call to Bar” exams or if she is about to purchase the certificate.

“Did you finally pass or you are about buying it?”, the lady wrote.

The reality TV star, who is not going to let anyone steal her shine, hit back at the lady and  shared photos of her certificates with the caption;

“It was worked HARD for. One exam sitting = SECOND CLASS HONOURS (UPPER DIVISION)”.

Cee-C also replied the lady saying; “know who you’re coming for.”

OAP Toolz Recounts How Almost Everyone In Her Home Tested Positive For COVID-19

Media personality, Tolu Demuren alias Toolz, has narrated how she and the members of her household tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.

The on-air personality, in a string of tweets, mentioned that she was mainly concerned about her two children but fortunately, they did not contract the virus. Toolz also revealed that they have all fully recovered in her home.

In her words;

“Feeling super thankful to God today! This time last month, we were going through a very scary period! Almost everyone in our house (including myself) tested positive for Covid-19.

I was just about to return to work after my maternity, and it all started with Captain complaining of ‘malaria-like’ symptoms. He had them for a few days, and didn’t seem to get any better…so we ended up taking him to hospital.

He had taken a Covid-19 test a few days before which was negative, so I thought it was a bad case of malaria. He was admitted with malaria and a bacterial infection we were told. After being given intravenous antibiotics and other meds he still wasn’t getting better.

I decided to move him to a different hospital, and they tested again, and he ‘blew up’ the test according to the doctor. My body went cold, and my first thought was ‘OMG the babies!!’. Then a short while later, I thought about myself. I did a rapid test, and it was positive.

Neither of us initially had the common symptoms- no coughing, no breathing issues…although I later lost my smell and taste. Captain was in hospital for a week and this was around the time of the Lekki shooting, so I was doubly terrified.

My main fear was the babies…especially our youngest son as he was just about 3 months old. We didn’t test them, but I was certain they had Covid too as we literally kiss and cuddle our boys every day. The doctor assured us that they wouldn’t be affected.

Thank God the doctor was right, other than a sneeze here & there, our babies were perfectly fine. I was generally ok too, just scared. Once you get that positive result, you get all these random symptoms you didn’t have before. My back would hurt…I’d be like hmmm corona oo

The weirdest thing was the taste and smell thing. Everything Captain had tasted bad, he’s a foodie so that was strange. One of my super powers is my sense of smell…and it just gradually faded. I actually put a bottle of bleach under my nose one day and…nothing.

I kept waiting to fall ill, and it didn’t happen. I started thinking I had indaboski blood, but then I had 2 days where I felt like I had the worst hangover in the world, then there was some fatigue, but I was generally ok.

Captain on the other hand felt super rundown, couldn’t keep food down, had cramping all over and a bunch of other symptoms. After a week, he came back home, and we finished our isolation period together.

After 2 weeks we all retested and were all thankfully Negative. Thanks to Almighty God for seeing us through, a big thank you to the doctors that looked after us… especially Dr Majekodunmi of Eurocare for the constant reassurance, and for taking my a million and one calls.

I’m super thankful I didn’t get it while I was pregnant. Imagine I travelled to have my baby, came back, did a 7 covid tests, and it was the 8th that was positive. The craziest thing was that a week before I legit told someone that there’s Covid in Lagos anymore. Silly me”, she concluded.
