Dj Switch - A New Star Is Born

Watch the capitivating moment when DJ Switch was declared the 1st winner of the Grand Finale of the Glo X-Factor West Africa 2013 which was sponsored by the multinational telecom company Globacom and held in Port Harcourt Nigeria.

DJ Switch whose real name is Catherine Udeh bagged a 24 Million Naira Cheque and a recording contract with Sony Music.  She adopted the name DJ Switch because of her versatility and ability to  effortlessly switch from one task to another while performing. 
Her rendition of a Jayz track and then the 'Michael Jackson track Black or White' on the night of X Factor Show 7 earned her rapturous applause from the audience and judges alike and more than anything else displayed the depth of her talent and hard work she must have put in to deliver such a polished performance and it was no suprise to most that she deservedly won the competition. While receiving her cheque she was Joined on stage by the U.K.  X Factor Winner  Alexandra Burke who has gone on to forge a very successful music career since winning the show in 2008. and we are sure her presence must have served as a big inspiration to DJ Switch.

 Her tearful and humble display of joy and prayers thanking the Almighty for his blessing and then rushing to embrace her mother Mrs Udeh who was sitting the front row was quite touching and infectious, it set the audience off to more wild applause and chants of DJ Switch.  She capped off the night by giving a superb performance of her forthcoming single 'Safe Landing,
I think it more than faIr to say that a new star has been born and we expect much more from DJ Switch in the not too distant future, stay tuned and watch this space.
Peace and Blessings
