Fiifi Selah accuses Samini and Shatta Wale of copying his style

Formerly known as Scobby Selah, Fiifi Selah of renowned music group, TH 4 Kwages says raggae-dancehall Artistes, Samini and Shatta Wale copied his style of singing.

According to him, the two musicians got inspiration from his songs to produce their first hit songs and broke into the music industry.

In an interview on Joy Prime, Fiifi Selah said; “Samini copied me. He listened to my music to write his ‘Linda’ song. Shatta Wale also listened to one of my Sass Squad songs to become Shatta Wale. They all came from me.”

This response came after he performed an acapela and the host asked as who between him and Samini copied the other since they have similar style.

As a result, he considers himself the pacesetter in raggae-dancehall music, claiming all artistes within that genre followed his trades.

Fiifi Selah further indicated that Sarkodie is the only rapper that is able to follow and mimic his style of rap because it is not the usual style every musician can flow with. “Nobody can rap my rap; only Sarkodie can do it because my rap is hard to get,” he mentioned.

The musician shared how he aggressively promoted raggea-dancehall music when he was privileged to host a show on radio to draw attention to the genre. “So, within my time, raggea-dancehall became big in Ghana.”

That notwithstanding, he is proud of the impact his songs have made on other over the years musicians including, Kofi Kinaata and Ayesem, amongst others.

Fiifi Selah a member of the defunct Th 4 Kwages formerly Sass Squad was known for hit songs like ‘Nana Esi,’ ‘Kwakyemu,’ ‘Menya Obaa Fefe,’ ‘Serwaa,’ ‘Wongye’ and more.
