By Osagie Alonge
One time Star Quest winner DJ Switch has emerged the first ever winner of GLO X Factor music talent show.
Switch beat two other finalists Eshun and Vicky at the finale which was recorded on September 19, 2013 at Dream Studio, Ogba, Ikeja, Lagos. Producers have however not announced the winner as the recording will be aired on Television this weekend.
As winner of the maiden edition of the show, DJ Switch (real name Obianuju Catherine Udeh) walks away with N24m, an SUV and a recording contract with SONY music.
Switch who currently resides in Abuja, hails from Udi, Enugu State, and she studied Geology at the University of Port Harcourt. She was a member of Da Pulse, a band that won the 2009 edition of STAR QUEST music talent show. The band went on to sign with KENNIS Music and released the street anthem ‘So tey‘ with a remix featuring Busta Rhymes.
The band broke up a few years later with Switch still working on her music career. She was featured on Weird MC‘s ‘Da paper song’ in 2011.
