Sandile Mkhize popularly known as DJ Citi Lyts has reportedly died after being shot 8 times.
He was the man behind the hit tracks such Vura and Washa Washa and brother to the late Linda ‘Pro Kid’ Mkhize.
He was once signed to Ambitiouz Entertainment but left to pursue a solo career.
In a purported hijacking incident in Dube, Soweto, Mkhize was allegedly shot and killed. He died in the early morning hours of Monday morning.
Dlamini said Mkhize passed away at 00:30.
“They were ambushed and 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 could, and the guys shot them.
“I can’t confirm how many they were in the car yet, but this happened at Dube, Soweto.”
