Ghana’s youngest disc jockey, Erica Tandoh popularly known as DJ Switch, has revealed it took her just five days to learn the art of playing music.
The sensational DJ who was recently featured on BBC Africa’s ‘What’s New’ said she had initially planned to audition for TV3’s Talented Kids show as a poet, but upon a second thought, her mother suggested that she tried her hands on DJing.
This is because according to her, she wanted her to be different and unique hence the decision which finally led to her winning the ultimate, last year. “She wanted me to try my hands on DJing so I used five days to learn DJing for audition”, she said.
The 10 year-old told Amanda Jissih on “E Talk” on GhOne television last Saturday, learning to DJ “was not easy; it was not difficult” too.
According to her, before practicing DJing, “I loved music” and “loved all kinds of music”. The fast rising young star whose dream is to be a gynecologist said, she would still love to continue with her passion which is playing music while practicing her profession to help women.
The award-winning DJ who said she selects her own songs for shows said, she gets invitations to DJ at parties, wedding and so on, when she was asked if she gets invitation for programmes.
Super talented Erica also said, though she has more fans and is celebrated at school, “We are all normal students”.
DJ Switch will be graduating to Junior High School on July 21, 2018 at her school, Talented Royals International School.
Erica is the youngest winner of the Ghana DJ awards. She has debut single “Deceiver,” which she sang with her mother.
