Torch City was formed in 2014 but came to the limelight in 2020 with the street anthem
” I NO BE NA NJAKA”
The song “Njaka” came in as a shock to the music Industry given that we hardly listen to such emotions which expressed bravery ,confidence & rebellion
This song was meant to demand respect from Industry Heads and it was finally given when the Lyrical Njorku Mic Monsta co-signed and approved their art with a verse on Njaka remix . From then on , A few singles like Serious, Overdose ,Afrorap & Days Like these showed that these 3 rappers aren’t just rappers , but are also the 3 horsemen of Camair Hip Hop .

Till the day both parents ,adults & children, relate/enjoy our songs ,there is still work to be done”
