Legally known as Praise Chinyere Okoh, the sassy songstress grew up between three West African countries; Nigeria, Togo and Ghana. Her family later moved back to Nigeria where she officially launched her music career.

“Growing up between these three West African countries have given me a million-worth of experience in music and culture,” says Orie King.

Orie King dropped her debut single, titled “In the Morning,” as a professional musician in 2012 and accompanied by an impressive music video.

She followed up with two notable singles; “Uchenna” produced By Phat E, and “Need Somebody” (produced by Ekelly and Tempo mixed, mastered by Bossbeatz).

She went on to release her debut extended play (EP). Orie announced the release of her debut EP, “Lotus the EP,” on March 18, 2021.

The EP consists of 6 tracks: “Fall Season,” “Into You,” “Tempo,” “Far Away,” “Doucement,” and “L.ov.e Y.o.u.”

The music video for one of the tracks off the EP, titled “Into You,” which was released in March this year was shot in Atlanta.

Orie King’s interest in music was cultivated during her teenage years and further developed when she opted to take lessons in Sound Engineering at Sound Xtreem studio, Atlanta Georgia.

Orie King was drawn into music at the age of 6. At age 8, she was already leading the children choir in her church. At age 15, she was the vocalist in the youth choir in Assemblies of God’s church Lomé, Togo.
