After she was spotted with American actress and author Octavia Spencer in Hollywood, DJ Switch has earned a massive endorsement from DJ Khaled.

The renowned American DJ on Wednesday evening posted a picture of the 12-year-old Ghanaian DJ who was clad in an orange t-shirt and an African print skirt with a headset around her neck on his Instagram page.

He urged the female youngster to "keep winning" while hailing her for proving her mettle.

"Bless up! DJ Switch. Keep winning. Bless up Ghana. Young world; the world is yours," caption of the post read.

DJ Switch has earned many accolades after emerging as the winner of TV3 Talented Kidz 8.

In February last year, she performed for African Heads at the African Union (AU) headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Her performance was on the sidelines of the 32nd Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the AU.

Prior to this, she had been invited by the Bill Gates Foundation to perform at an event in New York which was graced by high profile dignitaries including French President Emmanuel Macron, Naomi Campbell and other globally influential personalities.

She also got featured on BBC and had a shout out from Jay Z.

Early this year, DJ Switch was named among the top 100 child prodigies in the world at the Global Child Prodigy Awards 2020 in India.

DJ Switch, known in her private life as Erica Armah Bra-Bulu Tandoh was recognised for her outstanding contribution and achievement as a disc jockey.

The award came barely two months after she was crowned the Best DJ in Ghana.

As part of her prize, she will be featured in a book about the best child prodigies in the world.

The awardees will also get the honour to meet Eminent leaders and get global exposure. Also, they will be part of other significant international events as speakers or influencers.

The 100 Global Child Prodigy Award is a platform to celebrate a kids talent and power in different categories such as dancing, music, arts, writing, acting, modelling, science, innovation and sports.

In what seemed to be a surprise birthday present in December last year, Talented Royal School announced a scholarship package for DJ Switch.

"From next term, till she writes BECE in 2021, she's on scholarship," Edward Afful, director of the school said.
