Nigerian rapper, Jeff Jones, makes his mark on the African music scene with “Oti To“, following the success of UK hit single sultry love song “Obimo“.

It is time I make my mark in Africa“, said Jeff Jones, who has spent the most part of his musical career in the United Kingdom.

I was signed to an independent label in England for a couple of years while studying at the University of Leicester, but I felt stuck to Western tracks that did not represent my true ideals and identity; I therefore waited for my contract to run out and moved on with my style of Afro-rap, highly influenced by the likes of Ice Prince and Sarkodie. While I cannot deny that my career has been shaped by Western music, I have no doubt that all music comes from the African soul; I feel the need to represent my people and make music that ‘we’ can identify with. Africa is home“.

He began his musical career performing in church as a gospel singer, until he found poetry and rhymes came easily. “I would open my mouth and drop rhymes on the spot. I knew then that it was the way forward“. He debuted as a professional artiste in 2011 under his label with a song entitled “Kilode“, which was a remake of P-Square‘s smash hit, “Chop My Money“.

His huge European fan base are not the only ones noticing him. He recently opened for acclaimed artistes Ice Prince and Fuse ODG; the list goes on. This current single, “Oti To” has already hit the airwaves and clubs in the UK, Ireland, Sweden and neighboring countries. He is set to release a captivating video that is sure to grant him the respect he deserves as one of the most lyrically talented rappers emerging from Africa. | ENJOY!!!
