The second-born of five siblings, DJ Lyta (real name Samuel Mwangi) is one of the best Kenyan Deejays today. Just like Dj Kalonje, Lyta has slowly taken over the streets to become the go-to Dj for most upcoming and well-doing artists.
Interestingly, DJ Lyta never dreamt of becoming a DJ when he was young. After completing primary school at Bishop Mahianini Academy in Murang’a and his secondary education at Gituru Secondary School in Nyahururu, he proceeded to Zetech College for a diploma in information technology.
However, he loved to listen to hip-hop music and would even smuggle his discman to school so that he could listen to urban FM radio stations during night preps.
Through his awesome mixes, Dj Lyta who is the founder of HotGrabba Entertainment has brought to light not one, not two but very many upcoming artists whose music couldn’t get the much needed airplay in the mainstream media.
His brand has also got promoters fighting to book him for events, why? Because Lyta usually fills up venues thanks to his ‘street soldiers’ who turn up in large numbers.
As other local Djs get lost in their own world by playing Nigerian music and other international jams, Dj Lyta keeps it local, promoting both upcoming and established artists through his top selling mixes.
I salute Dj Lyta! – perhaps other Dj’s ought to learn from him!
