Listen to Patoranking's First Official Single of the Year Titled 'I'm in Love'

Patoranking continues to give fans a glimpse into his more vulnerable side in this beautiful love song.

Patoranking delivers yet another single which sees him giving fans yet another glimpse into his more vulnerable side as an artist.

His first official single of the year, "I'm in Love" is a serenading love song where Patoranking unashamedly declares his love for a girl. He details the lengths to which he'll go to show her just how much he loves her.


"I'm in Love" is a mid-tempo track which stays true to Patoranking's signature Afro-fusion style. The string instrumentals add a nostalgic feel to the track and makes for some really easy listening. Before you know it, you'll be singing along to the infectious tune and probably running the song on repeat. We certainly are.

Following his 2019 sophomore album Wilmer, which was inspired by his daughter, Patoranking is certainly being deliberate about making sure his personal evolution translates into his music as well.

The artist is also not wasting any time in terms of taking his music to the rest of the world. He recently announced that he'd be embarking on his first international tour which will kick off in Toronto in early April. The artist is set to make stops in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, San Francisco and several other cities.

Speaking in an interview with Joey Akan for OkayAfrica last year, Patoranking spoke about his upcoming tour and said, "By God's grace, [my next steps are] putting Nigeria and Africa on the global map. We want to give them something that they would always look forward to for the next one." Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased here.

Listen to "I'm in Love" below. You can also find the track on Apple Music and Spotify.

How Relocating to Ghana Helped Reinvigorate Jewelry Designer Aisha Asamany's Work

Moving to Ghana gave Aisha Asamany's luxury jewelry brand, inspired by Adinkra symbols that traditionally project strength, fearlessness, love and power, renewed verve to tell personal stories of her growing clientele.

In 2019, the government of Ghana made a global splash with its Year of Return initiative – the campaign sought to encourage the African diaspora to return home to the continent, specifically to Ghana.

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
