DJ Switch, 15, is a household name, and after winning local and international awards, as well as performing at high-profile events, one would think she would allow fame to distract her from her dreams of becoming a gynecologist one day.
Nevertheless, Lilian Oduro Mensah, mother of Talented Kidz Season 8 winner, has stated her daughter is focused on her dreams and hasn’t let fame get to her.
DJ Switch, born Erica Armah Bra-Bulu Tandoh, is still in school working towards her dream of becoming a gynecologist, as well as ‘working’ as a DJ when necessary, according to Madam Mensah. Whenever her daughter gets comfortable in her comfort zone, she tells her to explore other options.

According to her mother, Erica looks much older than her age, which is entirely true because she isn’t easily swayed. I can’t even pressure her.
Although she had been exposed to DJ, Lilian stressed the DJ took her education seriously and prioritized it over everything else. “I thought fame was going to affect her studies but she proved me wrong. She is doing extremely well, juggling school and a disc jockey”
she has to put her program on hold whenever she has a program that crashes with schoolwork. When she is not comfortable, with a situation, she will tell me.
Despite her daughter’s extensive network in the entertainment industry, Lilian believes there is still more to come since she is still young.
In the future, she hopes to meet more people, which will be a breakthrough in opening doors and expanding her network, locally as well as internationally.
When Lilian was asked how it felt to be recognized as the mother of a famous child, she said it felt very normal.
Lilian, who is the mother of DJ Switch, sometimes hesitates to admit she is her daughter’s mother, not because she doesn’t want to be in the public eye, but because she doesn’t want her personal life to be restricted.
The mother of a celebrity is not a celebrity, but a regular person. “I don’t feel any different from other mothers who aren’t mothers to celebrities,” she said.
Lilian doesn’t mind if her other children follow in the footsteps of DJ Switch when the opportunity arises, as she is the only girl among five siblings. Talent is everything and should not be taken for granted, so she will only need to support them.
