Last Saturday, 12-year-old Erica Armah Bra-Bulu Tandoh, whom we currently know as DJ Switch probably won the biggest award in her life yet.

The best of the very best in DJing in Ghana were celebrated for their contributions to the profession and by extension the Ghanaian music industry.

Pitched against other amazing DJs including DJ Mic-Smith, DJ Vyrusky, DJ Sly, DJ Aroma and DJ Black, the 12-year-old was named as the DJ of the year.

That was the most coveted prize of the evening.

Though her fans and mentors were super proud of her for being able to win this award, others were also not happy that she won it.

Their reason? She didn’t deserve it. Some are also using her age as a factor in their argument that she didn’t deserve to win the award.

Even Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD) took to Facebook to say that though he loves DJ Switch “let’s allow her a natural growth and not force her to compete with adults. We all owe that to her.”

What seems as a genuine concern from KOD can best be deemed as an ageist comment.

Her supporters argue that if she has done a similar amount of job as the adult then she is also qualified to be considered for and win such awards.

For 2019 alone, DJ Switch has done an incredible amount of work – a lot of them are significant international events.

She won the award for Entertainment and Community Development at the 2019 Child Summit and Award. She dedicated her award to the children of South Africa amidst the recent xenophobic attacks.

Last June, she also was also featured on the U.S television channel, CNBC where she spoke about DJing as a kid.

She also DJed and delivered a message at the 2019 Women Deliver Conference in Canada.

Then, just before she shared a stage with Wyclef last May, her image was displayed in the iconic Times Square in New York.

That came after President Akufo-Addo invited her to Ethiopia to play for African leaders during the 32nd African Union Summit, last February.

However, knowing very well the kind of industry she is playing in, DJ Switch has had a few words for her “haters”. As we do here, she put it in a song.
