Africa’s youngest DJ, DJ Switch is set to join several influential people from around the world, including ‘almighty’ Bill Gates as one of the many speakers at the upcoming Goalkeepers 2018.
Started by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Goalkeepers is a catalyst for action toward the goal of bringing together leaders from around the world to accelerate progress toward ending poverty and fighting inequality.
This year, both the event and the Goalkeepers Report will highlight how the tremendous growth in youth populations will be a turning point for future progress in health, equality, and development. It will celebrate and inspire a new generation of young advocates who work on behalf of these causes.
In what seems like a major breakthrough for the skilled youngster, DJ Switch will have the opportunity of ‘mixing’ with distinguished personalities including Melinda Gates, Bill Gates, Ed Sheeran, Fatoumata Diawara, Nancy Kacungira, The Brooklyn Youth Chorus and a host of other carefully selected speakers from around the world to share their stories of challenges, innovation, and leadership.
DJ Switch, whose real name is Erica Tandoh rose to prominence through TV3’s Talented Kidz Season 8 after emerging as the ultimate winner.
Her talent has attracted rare attention from some notable celebs from the world, including Ramsey Noah of Nigeria, Gabrielle Union and rapper Common from US.
