Here’s what she said in an interview with showtime:
‘We have a lot of DJs in the country, but none of them sings as well. We have DJs who have albums, but they’re not the ones singing on it; rather, they work with artistes for that. I don’t look at competition; I’m even happy that we have a lot of female DJs now. I get approached by a lot of guys who want me to teach them how to be DJs, and I wish ladies will come to me more. I’m unique because I turn tables and I sing as well. My name is Switch, and like I keep telling people, I can always switch my style. Not only do I play, I know how to hold a crowd; that’s something that makes me stand out.’
