According to Elephant Man, the performance gave his career and dancehall on a whole a huge boost.

“When I saw Nicki Minaj, Gabrielle Union, when I saw the big movie stars them in the crowd get up, and they are singing the songs line for line, when I saw the electrifying performance that took everyone out their chairs I said yes standing ovation, I said dancehall,” Elephant Man told Anthony Miller of ER.

“Right now my two phones are ringing like crazy, right now Q has nine phones because him can’t have one phone,” Elephant Man continues.

Elephant Man also said the producers of BET Awards plans on having a dancehall segment every year.
