In the aforementioned interview with Entertainment Express, he described his music as a morally inclined variation of dancehall and said it references socio-political issues.

In May 2012, Patoranking released a single titled “Iya Bisi”, featuring Qdot and Kbaj. The Drumphase-produced song is a fusion of dancehall and fuji. 

Patoranking told Entertainment Express that Qdot and Kbaj helped compose the song by sharing ideas with him.

On 12 September 2013, Okorie released the audio and video for “Alubarika” simultaneously. 

The song literally translates to “God’s Blessings” and features vocals from Timaya. 

The music video for “Alubarika” was shot by AJE Films and ran for 4 minutes and 16 seconds. 

Patoranking described the song as a summary of his life as a musician and said it opened doors for him in terms of building a fan base and working with established musicians.

In February 2014, Patoranking signed a record deal with Foston Musik and ended his affiliations with Dem Mama Records. 

On 4 February 2014, Patoranking released “Girlie O”, a song produced by WizzyPro. 

The music video for the song was shot and directed in London by Moe Musa; it was released on 5 February 2014.

In the music video, Patoranking liberates his next-door neighbor from domestic violence by expressing his innate feelings to her.

Foston Musik released the Tiwa Savage-assisted “Girlie O” (Remix) on 19 May 2014 to critical acclaim.

It debuted at No. 9 on MTV Base’s Official Naija Top 10 chart. Tiwa Savage told Ehiz of MTV Base she admires Patoranking’s music and decided to reach out to him to do the remix.

The music video for “Girlie O” (Remix) was also shot and directed in London by Moe Musa.

Joey Akan of Pulse Nigeria said, “On the new remix, the basic winning elements were not discarded. 

They were retained and improved. The beat, chorus, and dynamism were held onto, and major work put into the lyrics.”

Patoranking was featured on Seyi Shay’s “Murda” single alongside Shaydee. The song was produced by Dokta Frabz and released on 1 April 2014.

On 11 May 2014, the music video for “Murda” was uploaded onto Vevo. It was directed by Meji Alabi for JM Films.
