DJ Fuad, the man said to have first trained DJ Switch in her craft, has expressed his disappointment at the parents of the youngest Ghanaian female disc jockey.
According to DJ Faud, who was the trainer of DJ Switch at the Talented Kidz Season 8, the parents of DJ Switch have failed to tell the world about the significant role he played in the success story of their daughter at the early stages.
Speaking in an interview Kofi TV, DJ Fuad, stated that his disappointment started when he first received calls from journalists alerting him of how reports on DJ Switch have it that she was trained by her parents, Mercury Quaye (Founder – Ghana DJ Award), among an endless list of people.
He continued that the calls intensified from some friends and the media, after DJ Switch returned from her participation at this year’s Goalkeepers, where his attention was drawn to how DJ Switch’s trainer was described as a “village bad DJ” in a circulating video on DJ Switch on social media.
DJ Fuad said he ignored those descriptions but believes the description “village bad DJ” is derogatory and denigrating to a young DJ (DJ Scratch) he trains who happens to help in training DJ Switch too.
According to DJ Fuad, he knew he will be sidelined someday the very day he heard that attribution to DJ Scratch.
“I’m only granting this interview because I just want the story to be told as it is. I trained her, so that village DJ, goes to describe me, since many know I trained her. For them (DJ Switch guardians), to talk about the village DJ alone means that apart from him, nothing else contributed to where she has come thus far," DJ Fuad was quoted on by Presspeeps.com as saying.
He added that he also received another video in which DJ Switch confessed in an interview that in a village where there’s no DJ, she had to practice on her own.
Born Erica Tandoh, DJ Switch rose to fame somewhere in May 2017 when she emerged as the winner of TV3’s popular kids programme dubbed “Talented Kidz”.
Since then, DJ switch has become a household name in Ghana, especially, among entertainment fanatics.
As part of her success story, DJ Switch was recently participated in this year’s Goalkeepers 2018 in New York City by Bill Gates – where she performed to the admiration of some world leaders and celebrities.
