Young Ghanaian star DJ Switch, known in private life as Erica Tandoh, has once again made waves on the international scene.
This time, the 12-year-old disc jockey has been celebrated by Apple Inc alongside other international stars for using Apple computers, the Mac, to change the world.
Apple held one of its product events on November 10, 2020, to introduce the M1 chip, the new chip that is powering latest models of the Mac computers.
Before the unveiling, the company's CEO Tim Cook delivered an introductory speech in which he talked about their existing products and the new chip.
At a point in his speech, he praised the Mac adding that many people have been using the computer to change the world.
"...All around the world, people use the Mac to do remarkable things, like the Mac itself they challenge the status quo, they take chances, they create, they innovate, they use the Mac to change the world and we’ll to celebrate them."
After that a short slideshow documentary of photos many popular people around the world using the Mac in various fields of endeavours was shown.
The slideshow feature international Serena Wiliams, Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams, Solange Knowles, Spike Lee, Kendrick Lamar, and many others.
Ghana's own DJ Switch happened to be the last person shown in the documentary and she had her MacBook in front of her while playing a gig.
The Apple Event which was streamed live on YouTube has already racked up over 7.2 million views.
This is not the first time DJ Switch has received such recognition from the American company on the world stage.
In March, she performed at Apple Music’s Black History Month’s session in California.
Meanwhile, Apple's recognition may only come to DJ Switch as a painful reminder as the little girl has lost her laptops.
In a recent post on social media, DJ Switch revealed that she has lost her laptops and DJ musical set items to thieves.
The young girl shared photos of the items on Instagram and begged the thieves to return them.
While it is rare that a thief or thieves would make away with such valuable items and later return them, she sounded hopeful that whoever stole them would be touched at heart to return them.
