Jones came to fame after becoming a finalist on “Idols SA” season nine in 2013.

A decade later, in 2023, with a few chart-topping singles in the bag, Jones released her long-anticipated album, “My Forever Friend”.

Her rise in the music industry has been nothing short of spectacular.

From her humble beginnings and four attempts at South African singing competitions, she has evolved into an artist celebrated for her extraordinary talent.

She plans to continue releasing music while also taking some time to fully embrace the blessing of becoming a mother.
