Reacting to the critics, the 11-year-old has stated that she deserved the award because she worked hard for it.
According to her, after winning the discovery of the year award in 2018, she tried her best to work hard and it has paid.
DJ Switch who spoke with Zionfelix in an interview sighted by YEN.com.gh further attributed her success to God saying the almighty answered her prayer.
Reacting to those who said she won the award because her manager Mercury Quaye is the organizer of the DJ Awards stated that Mercury Quaye is not necessarily her manager but rather a father and an adviser to all the DJ’s.
“The other nominees are Senior DJs but I think I got the award because of God. I prayed and talk to my God that I want the Best DJ of the Year and my God granted me the wish,” she said.
Touching on claims from certain quarters that she was given the award because the organiser, DJ Merqury was part of her management team, the award winner clarified that Merqury was not her manager but a father (mentor) figure who helps her and other DJs.
Born Erica Tandoh, DJ came into the limelight after emerging as the winner of Talented Kids in 2017.
