Aged 10, DJ Switch has already won a showbiz award for her passion on the decks.

Erica won Ghana's annual DJ Awards just a year after she started deejaying.

While speaking to BBC, DJ Switch said she started being interested in the art and went on to learn it.

The multi-talented 10-year-old can dance, play the trumpet, drums and is still learning the piano.

DJ Switch has already recorded a song with her mother dubbed Deceiver.
