Acknowledge those who helped your daughter – Mark Okraku tells DJ Switch’s mother
The Programmes Director of Hitz FM, Mark Okraku Mantey, has asked the parents of DJ Switch, the ten-year-old Ghanaian disc jockey, to remain grateful to those who guided their ward to stardom.
According to him, the parents of the young DJ should forever acknowledge people who made an effort to push their daughter into the limelight.
“It is humane to appreciate his [DJ Fuad] works. It’s not because he has been paid off. Ingratitude has been one of the biggest problems in the industry. Why do you think that when you pay Sony Music for their works, you still have to acknowledge their brand,” he quizzed.
“Little things must be appreciated; you lose nothing when you say thank you. They should appreciate him [DJ Fuad] for his hard work,” Mr NMantey advised.
One of the DJ’s who reportedly helped DJ Switch rise to fame is DJ Fuad who has since complained of being sidelined.
DJ Fuad is said to have worked behind the scenes to train DJ Switch to win Talented Kidz Season 8 says the young DJ and her guardians have neglected him.
Speaking in an interview with Kofi TV, DJ Fuad said he was disappointed that DJ Scratch, recently referred to him in an interview as a ‘villager’.
According to him, if DJ Scratch could be called a “villager”, he was not shocked that he was sidelined by DJ Switch’s handlers.
“I’m only granting this interview because I just want the story to be told as it is. I trained her…For them (DJ Switch guardians), to talk about the village DJ alone means that apart from him, nothing else contributed to her rise,” an obviously bitter DJ Fuad said in a media interview”.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM on Monday, the President of the Creative Arts Council, Mark Okraku Mantey recalled his past, revealing that he went through the same situation with then secular musician, Lord Kenya.
