“We are eternally thankful for the outpouring of love that Catherine and our family have received over the past few months.

Cat Janice cancer battle
On January 25, Cat Janice spoke about her health status and fight against cancer.

Her post read partly, “With everything going on in my health I never thought it would come down to something like this. I was just happy I got to actually walk down the aisle at my wedding to the man of my dreams.

“I never thought my incredibly scary turn with the ICU and attempt to buy me some time with my family would end up turning into an actual miracle.

“I’m just thankful to squeeze my boy more over this adorable little song we came up with in the car on a summer day.

“And I miss you all so much and wanna play and see some live music and I’m gonna work so hard to get my legs back and hit the first local jam I can find while I’ve got this God-given time ❤ thank you for all of you who have come to say hi these pictures don’t do it justice ❤#danceyououttamyhead #glorytogod #cancer #dcmusic”

PUNCH Online reports that the singer and multi-instrumentalist, known by the legal name Catherine Ipsan, initiated her musical journey during adolescence and continued to release music into her 20s.

However, it was the track “Dance You Outta My Head” that propelled her to the pinnacle of success.

Shared on social media, the song, accompanied by candid discussions about her challenging cancer treatments, swiftly became the highlight of her career.

Set against disco-inflected guitar and lively strings, she conveyed the theme of “dancing on the edge of disaster.”

2024 billboard success
Meanwhile, she posted on January 30 to show her excitement when her song made the top 40 Billboard charting artiste on Hot Dance.

The American wrote, “I am SHOCKED to be a Top 40 Billboard Charting artist on Hot Dance/Electronic and ALSO #11 on Digital Sales. YOU ALL DID THIS. You gave me my dream come true.

“Right when I needed it most. You all loved me back to life and gave me my “one more moment alive”.

“When I wrote “Wishing I Was You”, I wrote those lyrics desperately wishing to have one more moment to scream from the rooftops and you all loved me so hard and gave me that moment and I am forever grateful. Whatever God brings my way I know I am loved.”

In 2022, Janice discovered a lump in her neck, leading to a diagnosis of sarcoma—a rare and aggressive cancer—in her scalene muscle.

Despite this, Janice, a geospatial information scientist pursuing a master’s in coastal geology, remained committed to her work, studies, and her passion for creating music.

* Reports of my arrest false, misleading – DJ Switch

By Francesca Hangeior

The operatives of the Nigeria Police Force in Lagos have reportedly arrested Obianuju Catherine Udeh, professionally known as DJ Switch.

According to a police source, DJ Switch was at the police station in Elemoro, Ajah on Monday, April 15 to complain about a man who allegedly defrauded her.

According to the police, the man was arrested on the same day and has been in police custody.

It was alleged that while the officers were about to drive the accused to court, DJ Switch blocked the station’s entrance and assaulted the female officer assigned to the case.

She was eventually arrested for obstructing police while on duty, resisting arrest, and assaulting officers.

DJ Switch was reportedly being taken to a Magistrate court in Eti-Osa where she would be arraigned for obstructing police officers while on duty and assaulting officers at the time of filing this report.

Meanwhile, DJ Switch, has debunked reports that she was arrested in Lagos.

Writing on X, DJ Switch said the report was false and the perpetrators intended to tarnish her image.

She also threatened to sue the originators of the fake news.

”I was woken up by a barrage of calls and text this morning. I wondered why because I know today is not my birthday. Only to find that I, have been arrested,” she wrote.

”One of the links that was sent to me alleged that I had assaulted the police. Now, while I am not a fan of many of our police men and women, I do not condone nor do I support violence against the police.

”Our blogs have such an unhealthy appetite for traffic that they can’t even spend the transport fare it would cost them to go investigate and make certain of the news they share to the public. These false reporting is dangerous and negatively shapes narratives.

”Many people want so badly to believe I am just like those I’ve fought against or believing that I have sacrificed all I have ever worked for just to bring down Nigeria. This is false.

”That being said, my lawyers have screenshotted every blog they can find this false news and this is defamation of my character. These blogs have till end of day to take down this false news and kindly replace with a post correcting their mistake. I am not looking for cheap publicity, I hate clout chasing and I actually am not an ass because I was advised to sue immediately which would cost them all a lot. So please do the needful and let us learn.”

Recall that DJ Switch fled Nigeria in the aftermath of #EndSARS protests after insisting that soldiers shot at peaceful protesters at Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos, on October 20, 2020.

She also said that they were sent to the protest venue on orders from above.

DJ Switch said this while speaking with the Sub-committee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development of the Canadian Parliament.
