The Hajiyev family are refugees from Fuzuli district. In August 1993, when Armenian aggressors were rampant in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, the Hajiyevs moved to Baku.

Only in 2009 were they able to build their small house in Sulutepe and settle down.

Togrul Hajiyev studied at refugee school No. 18 in the Zangilan district, and went to music school with his brother. Toghrul was a very talented boy and won competitions several times. With high scores, he entered the Azerbaijan National Conservatory and graduated with honors from his bachelor's and master's degrees. He took part in various concert programs, was a teacher at children's music school No. 3 of the Fizuli region.

His father, Rufat, was a worker who fought in the First Garabagh War. In the winter of 1994, he was seriously wounded during the Horadiz operation. From the first days of the Second Garabagh War, Togrul Hajiyev went to the front as a private in active military service and fought valiantly against the Armenian occupiers. He became a martyr on October 10, 2020, during the liberation of his native Fuzuli district.
