Radio personality and Fashion designer Kofi Okyere Darko, popularly known as KOD,  believes ‘DJ of the Year’ award will mount pressure on 12-year-old DJ Switch.

DJ Switch was crowned the overall best DJ of the Year at the recently held Ghana DJ Awards at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).

KOD in an interview on Neat FM, monitored by, stated that the young DJ deserved an honorary award that highlights her achievements.

According to him,  that would put her at her own pace but still have eyes looking out for what she has to offer in the future.

Although DJ Switch has graced many international platforms, she deserved “something like the Black Star award or Future award but not “pushing her too much by giving her ‘DJ of the Year’”.

He, however, said the 12-year-old DJ shouldn’t feel pampered but rather work hard to sustain her legacy and brand.

The organisers of the Ghana DJ Awards have been facing criticisms after they awarded DJ Switch, born Erica Tandoh, the Best DJ of the Year.

She beat DJ Mic-Smith, DJ Vyrusky, DJ Sly, DJ Aroma and DJ Black to grasp the coveted award.

Many Ghanaians have described her win shocking, explaining that she still had a lot to learn before she could be put in that category with the other DJs.

The young DJ however, is pleading with other DJ’s not to be angry about her win.

In an interview on the Cosmopolitan Mix, Tuesday, she explained that “this is not a competition and no one is a loser. I feel that this is an honour, and I am grateful for that.” she said.
