Once again, young talented DJ Switch has taken Ghana to international heights. This time through a feature by Instagram on their distinguished official account with 417 million followers.
Instagram posted a photo of the 13-year-old captioned, “I feel like I am doing something that creates a galaxy beyond the Andromeda Galaxy. I’m a person who uses music to connect with people’s souls. My attitude and style of DJing either make you smile or laugh and basically switches up your mood … My goal is always to pump up the room and people.
“After winning a TV talent competition, Erica went on to become the youngest recipient of Ghana’s annual DJ award at the age of 10. ‘I am discovering new versions of myself and passions each day,” says Erica, who also sings, raps, dances, writes poetry, acts and does motivational speeches. She also has her own nonprofit organization, the DJ Switch Foundation, which seeks to change lives through music.
“The foundation focuses on encouraging quality education, teaching health and well-being, and supporting gender equality globally,” she explains. “I have had the opportunity to become an inspiration to my community, the young people in the world and especially young girls. It means a lot to me to enable other people my age and from places like Ghana to pursue their creativity.”
The famous post has gathered over 6,000 comments and 200 million like since it appeared on the social media platform to users all over the world, including DJ switch, who had this to say, “OMG Thanks @instagram for this one #switchup“.
