Patoranking – Heal D World (Video+Appraisal)
Nigeria’s king of reggae-dancehall, Patoranking has released a long anticipated new single ‘ Heal D World’ .
The song which was released on the 17th day of August 2018, was produced by Amari Musiq’s Killa Shay who did an amazing job in the visual which was shot in Georgia and said to have cost the singer a whopping $65’000 which amounts to over 23M in Nigerian Naira.
The 28-year-old dancer and songwriter through his new song made an attempt on addressing the social vices and negative behaviours that plagues the world, with special emphasis on matters affecting his home country Nigeria.
In a few seconds, Patoranking in the first verse of his new single gave an accurate representation of the plight of his country and the world at large. He pointed out all the maleficence that has kept Nigeria and the world from making headway.
” Girls fighting over Gemini and Pisces, every corner it’s war and crisis, Bokoharam, Al Qaeda and ISIS, how come the poor people are the nicest. Africa blessed with lot of beautiful history but this people make us feel like everything is a mystery, they make we live a jittery, we pray to God father to give us victory.
Take a look round the city now, no love what a pity now, 21 look like 50 now, hatred make him shitty now, back then she is a cutie now, you no longer do your duty now, you follow girls with big booty now, all you do is booting and looting now” he sang .
Meanwhile Pato during an interview with Beat1 said he was moved to sing about the unfortunate situation of the world because people are suffering and smiling and because these same people made him who he is he felt the need to release ‘Heal D World‘
” My people can’t be suffering and smiling, these are the people that made me who i am and i think it’s time i just have to speak for them. We can’t achieve success if we don’t love each other so it’s time we healed the world with love” he said
Pato sure raised his standards in this song and believe me the visual is of Grammy standard, watch below:
