Best known as DJ Zel, her name is Zelda Nana Yaa Adepa Dedaa Manteaw. She arrived at Kotoka International Airport to great fanfare the evening of 16th July at Accra’s Kotoka International Airport. Her family members were there to greet her and the media was also there. The young DJ has made the journey to Ghana during the Year of Return and is excited about what’s in store during her stay. She is thrilled to be here during a monumental time when President Nana Akufo-Addo has opened Ghana’s doors to welcome people from the global African diaspora.
The young talent will be in Ghana until 30th August, just before she has to go back to school. She plans to spend time with family and explore the sights, sounds and culture of Ghana. She will be touring and meeting people in her industry and beyond. “My dream is to make Ghana proud of my work,” she said to the press.
At nine years old, she is the youngest DJ on the air in the U.K. and hosts a radio program called UniAfrik that airs on GN Radio. While she is here, she just might get an opportunity to do a guest spot on one of the local radio stations. She also expressed a desire to meet with Ghana’s other famous young talent, DJ Switch. That would be a great meeting of two young minds.
