Ghanaian child prodigy Dj Switch has won the overall Best Dj at the Ghana Dj Awards 2019 which took place in Accra on Saturday 2nd November at the Accra International Conference Centre. She received a brand new Lenovo laptop and a Dj sound equipment as part of her prizes. The young Dj described the journey as an emotional one but also a learning process as tears filled her eyes when she gave her acceptance speech.
After emerging from local reality TV show ‘Talented Kids’, Dj Switch as she is popularly known in the entertainment circles, has carved a reputation for herself in the international scene with recognition from American rapper ‘Jay Z’s Roc Nation to shaking hands with the President of France. Yet, she could not hold back her tears when she was announced as the Overall Best Dj in Ghana for 2019 at the Ghana Dj Awards this year. She said she was grateful for the recognition done her and thanked the audience. “Thank you so much Ghana and also those who voted for me, including my fans who have been supporting me till date. I also thank all the Djs: Dj Black, Dj Vyrusky, and the others. Dj Black was my mentor since ‘Talented Kids’ and Dj Vyrusky has also been helping me when I don’t understand something. And also, thank you to ‘Glo City’ for supporting me all the time”, she said.
Dj Switch competed with household names in the Ghanaian entertainment circle to win the most prestigious award of the evening. Among them were last year’s winner of the overall Dj of the Year ‘Dj Vyrusky’, multiple award winner ‘Dj Black’, among other heavy weights. This year marked the 7th edition of the Ghana Dj Awards; the only event in Ghana that celebrates Djs from all over the country under one roof.
