DJ City Lyts uncovered his passion for hip-hop music while studying at Yoeville Primary School. He partook in school movements such as Hip-hop & Pantsula dance groups and participated in the school ensemble. While in high school, he started a hip-hop outfit named Flipside. This booted his profession with performances at nightclubs such as BlackOrchard, Club Keys and many more.
Citi Lyts first chance to DJ was when he linked up with hip-hop artist F Eezy and performed as a DJ and hypeman. He after that joined forces with his brother Pro-Kid, which helped cement his talent as a DJ.
His network of friends in the music scene helped him gain the chance to work with the producer behind then South Africa’s biggest song, Roll-up and the award-winning hip-hop artist Emtee. A series of events and consistency catapulted him to become one of SA’s top DJs.
