The 11-year-old’s crowning as ‘DJ of the Year’ at 2019 Ghana DJ Awards got the world talking about the historic turn of events.

However, Merqury Quaye in an interview on Joy Fm stated that he doesn’t manage DJ Switch.

‘…that is not correct. As a matter of fact, any DJ in Ghana will tell you that I have been supportive to every DJ in Ghana including DJ Switch’, he said.

Merqury Quaye, who is regarded as the father of DJs in Ghana, revealed that his aim is to elevate the careers of all DJs in Ghana.

‘Anytime any DJ needs support, needs help, my remit is to catapult all these guys to the highest stage possible’.

‘At one point or the other, you will see me offer support to a DJ if they need the help.’, he continued.

Merqury Quaye stressed he is not ‘technically’ part or a core member of any DJ’s team but rather lends support to all.

The Joy Tv presenter, who doubles as a musician, revealed that, Ghanaian artistes need to understand they can’t look down on DJs, disrespect DJs, refuse to support DJs who repeatedly play back their songs to their audiences to fall in love with and expect the same DJs to passionately hype them, support them, and ultimately propel them to literally reach the diaspora.

Merqury Quaye also stated that, musicians should not be in exciting moods when the Disk Jockeys are pushng with their music career and making themselves unavailable when their presence is need, urging them to defy all odds as far as supporting the DJ is concerned.
