Citi Lyts

Citi Lyts - Vura 

Soweto brewed hip-hop DJ & rapper Sandile Nkululeko Mkhize aka DJ Citi Lyts is a great testament to “building from the ground-up”. City Lyts discovered his love for rap music at Yeoville Primary School as he participated in school activities such as Hip Hop & Pantsula dance groups and also partaking in the school choir. In high school, he formed a hip-hop group called “Flipside”. The hip-hop group kicked off his career with performances at club events such as BlackOrchard and Club Keys. Citi Lyts first opportunity to DJ was when met hiphop artist F Eezy and worked with him as a DJ and hype man. He later went on to work with his brother Pro-Kid which assisted in further building on his skills as a DJ. It was his music circle of friends that led him to meet and work with the producer behind SA biggest song Roll-up, - “Ruff” and the award-winning artist Emtee Da Hustler -, that his career catapulted, which put a spot light on Citi Lyts as one of SA DJ’s to watch-out for in 2017.
