If you are curious to know about Yolandi Visser’s daughter this discussion is the opportunity you have been waiting for, to learn about her parents and know more about her personal life, her love life and net worth. Let’s discuss, sixteen Jones the daughter of rappers from South Africa.
Who is Sixteen Jones?
She was born on 15 January 2006 to celebrity rappers, her father Watkin Tudor Jones – stage name Ninja – and mother Yolandi Visser. In ordinary life description, Sixteen Jones is a child born out of wedlock as her parents never formally married.
Early life and family background
Sixteen is the only biological child of her parents, but has an adopted brother named Tokkie Jones. She has a grandfather named Ben du Toit. While growing up, she was shown to the showbiz world and on occasions appeared in her parents’ music videos such as “I Fink U Freely” at the age of seven, and was heard on many other tracks of her parents’ music video works. It was this early exposure to the world of music that triggered Sixteen’s interest in music and showbiz, and she is making giant stride today to live the legacy of her parents.
Being the daughter of celebrity rappers, she was exposed to the paparazzi world from childhood, and she’s today in the eyes of the media following up on her progress in her chosen career.
As a baby, she made her first appearance in the ‘Obrigado Magazine’ posing with her parents. Again, she featured on the cover of “Rolling Stone” magazine with her parents, and later appeared in music videos with them. She features in several of Die Antwoord group works, and this was the way that she earned her initial popularity. As a child, she featured in many of her parents’ projects, and participated in many events including the 2017 Alexander Wang’s Spring/Summer event for New York Fashion Week.
She was once a member of the music group “The Boy With the Rainbow Face” alongside Sunny the daughter of Flea, the bassist of the American Band called “The Red Hot Chilli Peppers.” In the band, Sunny plays the lead while Jones serves as the back-up singer and songwriter. Her mother who is obviously proud of her daughter said “She’s really good.” While Jones adores her parents and would do anything they do, she is the opposite of them in that she can’t stand any foul language as they often do. Her career is progressing, and being just 13 years old in 2019, her journey into the showbiz world is just starting, and one hopes she has more performances to deliver to the world and especially her ardent fans.
Her mother is known for her unique, sometimes controversial fashion appeal while performing, and Sixteen has been a part of several party-type videos. While there is speculation about the direction of her life, she has stated that she is following the footsteps of her parents in the music industry.

Parents and their music
Her parents are room-mate friends, who do everything married couples do but choose to remain officially single under the same roof. They are owners of “Die Antwoord” the rap-rave group that means “The Answer” in Afrikaans, formed in 2008 in Cape Town, South Africa comprising three people – two vocalists and a producer. Yolandi Visser is the frontwoman, her father Watkin Tudor Jones – called Ninja on stage – is the backup, and DJ Hi-Tek (Justin de Nobrega) the producer.
Everything about her parents and their style of music is unconventional; their songs are out of the hip-hop genre norms, and include the South African counterculture movement style called ZEF Culture, which incorporates out-of-date, unwanted cultural elements and has been portrayed as modern and trashy by music pundits. Although they are unconventional in their music style, this has mostly set them apart from other industry players, and it is suspected that Sixteen is moving towards the same manner, to be different and distinct in her work.
The mother’s birth name was Anri du Toit, born on 1 December 1984, in Port Alfred a small town on the east coast of South Africa. Her father was born on 26 September 1974; they met in Cape Town and were joined together by music. Her parents are still very active in the music industry – mother is also known for her provocative dressing and earned the appellate of a Fashionista; it is her sense of fashion that Sixteen follows most passionately!
She is a child, just thirteen in January 2019 and has been focused on her career and education. We do not have any information regarding any romance or affairs with any boyfriend at this time.
She is a growing child whose body measurement at such time are bound to change constantly as she develops. However, she is blonde and has brown eyes.
Social media presence
Miss Jones is active on social media including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. As of 2018, she has about 800 followers on Instagram and roughly 220 followers on her Twitter account. She is very friendly on social media, and posts lots of pictures of her personal and professional life on Instagram.
Sixteen’s net worth is growing, and she is just stepping into her career full time. However, available information regarding her net worth from sources shows she is worth well over $100,000 in early 2018. As a child loved by her parents and under their guidance, she is also a beneficiary of her parents’ wealth. Authoritative sources say her mother Yolandi Visser’s net worth is about $10 million, while her father, Ninja’s net worth is also about $10 million, which leaves Sixteen and her brother in a very comfortable financial.
