DJ Switch

People from Africa and the rest of the world are obsessed with 10-year-old Erica Tandoh otherwise known as DJ Switch, who shot to fame after winning a TV talent contest in Ghana for kids in 2017.

The following year, she became the youngest ever winner at Ghana’s annual DJ awards after having started DJing only a year ago.

In a recent interview with the BBC, DJ Switch said “Being a young DJ is not that difficult.

“When you are being taught in school you pick everything fast. So when you are being taught to DJ you also pick it up fast.”

In school, the young genius plays the trumpet and drums, practices dance and is learning the piano. DJ Switch, who also loves making music said she wants to be a gynaecologist when she grows up because she “wants to help women.”

The youngest talented disk jockey recently wowed the audience in New York for the 2018 Goalkeepers event, including the French president, Emmanuel Macron. Photos and videos of the two chatting at the event trended on social media.
