Career

DJ Switch Ghana started her career as a poet and her first competition which she won was a Festival of Arts and Culture in her hometown, Suaman Dadieso.

After winning this competition, the people of Suaman Dadieso in the Western North Region of Ghana including DJ Switch’s parents wanted her to showcase her talent on a bigger platform like the TV3 Talented Kids reality show on TV3. So, in 2017, she came to Accra to audition for Season 8 of The Talented Kids’ reality show as a Disc Jockey.

DJ Switch had wanted to participate in the TV3 Talented Kids competition as a poet. However, her mother, Lilian Oduro Mensah who noticed that her daughter loved music suggested she competes as a Disc Jockey and hired a DJ to teach young Erica how to Dee Jay just five days before the Talented Kids Season 8 auditions.

Switch got selected among the contestants for the Season 8 of Talented Kids after her audition, and she went through to the finals of the competition, and in the end, she emerged as the winner.

In 2018, a year after she won Talented Kids, Erica won the best discovery DJ of the Year award at the Ghana DJ Awards 2018. In the same year, she was invited to New York City where she opened the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s annual event. She was also interviewed on CNN Africa.
