Fiifi Selah affirmed his position as a pioneer in the reggae-dancehall genre, implying that other artists have followed his example. He also recalled how, while hosting a radio show, he actively promoted reggae-dancehall music, contributing to the genre’s increased recognition in Ghana.

“Within my time, reggae-dancehall became big in Ghana,” he said.

Fiifi Selah asserted that only Sarkodie could match his flow, claiming that his rap style is distinct and difficult to imitate.”Nobody can rap my rap; only Sarkodie can do it because my rap is hard to get,” he claimed.
