Nigerian music heavyweight Patoranking returns today with “Kolo Kolo,” featuring Tanzania’s Diamond Platinumz. The joyous afrobeats banger, produced by Yung Willis, is the first single from Patoranking’s forthcoming fourth album, and his first new release since 2021’s “Celebrate Me.”

Dammy Twitch directed the music video, which was filmed in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania with Nigerian actress Nancy Isime as the love interest who has Patoranking going “kolo kolo” — a Nigerian term for mad, or crazy.
