Erica Tandoh is definitely not your average 10 years old. Also known as DJ Switch this multitalented girl has already won a showbiz award for her passion on the decks. Erica won Ghana’s annual DJ Awards just a year after she started deejaying.
Erica’s breakthrough came when she emerged the winner of the 8th edition of TV3’s Talented Kidz, a Ghanaian Talent Show for kids.
While speaking to BBC Africa, DJ Switch said she started being interested in the art and went on to learn it.
“I started deejaying when I was nine years and I just wanted to try my hand at it… 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 deejaying you also pick it up fast,” she said.
About her stage name she says;
“I picked the name DJ Switch because I switch up people’s happiness,”
“Deejaying is my passion but I want to be a gynecologist because I want to help women,”.
DJ Switch has already recorded a song with her mother dubbed Deceiver.
This interview is one of the first to come out of BBC’s new Africa-focused program, “What’s New,” which is geared towards engaging children on the continent.
