Mkhize family Confirms Death Of DJ Citi Lyts

He is the man behind hit tracks Washa Washa and Vurra and the little brother of late hip hop icon ProKid.
Sandile Mkhize, known as DJ Citi Lyts, was well on the way to becoming an icon himself when his life was brutally cut short. His family and close friends woke up to the news that Sandile died in the early hours of Monday morning.
“I can confirm that Sandile passed away at 12:30 am in the morning,” family spokesperson Nhlanhla Lux Dlamini tells Drum.
“They were ambushed and that is ambushed that is the best way to put it. They coupled up; four guys came out of nowhere, stopped them, and shot them in their heads. They fought as much as they can, and the guys shot them. I can’t confirm how many they were in the car yet, but this happened at Dube, Soweto.”
Nhlanhla said the family is still processing their son’s passing, and they are in the process of finding out who was behind this because it seems like a hit.
“I am on my way to Jabulani Police Station now to verify if the case is opened. But by now it should be because generally if it is a murder case and someone is laying on the pavement when the police come to the scene it is automatic. We don’t know how to open up that type of case, I will follow up with the family also just to check if they have been contacted by any police officer. I want to find everything out and come back to you with detailed information,” he says.
DJ Citi Lyts started his career as rapper F-Eezy’s hypeman and DJ. He was once an Ambitiouz Ent. signee and released hit songs such as Malambane, Shishiliza, Washa Washa, and Vurra, just to name a few. He then left Ambitiouz Ent. to pursue his solo career.
