In 2009, Jones won Channel O Emcee Africa, a highly visible competition that propelled him immediately to nationwide acclaim. He became known for his inventive freestyle cyphers, and in 2012 he issued “Tema ma Verse,” a collaborative single with Abbas Kubaff. Jones’ debut studio album, Point of No Return, was released in 2014, and he climbed even further up the ladder with constant airplay and frequent features on other rappers’ tracks. Before the year was over, he followed the album quickly with Autograph, a collection of previously released tracks.
