Biography

Sierra Leone (2012 – present)

A*M*E is a 18 year old singer from South East London. She began her recording career in 2012 after the release of her first viral single, “City Lights”. She is best known for her Duke Dumont collaboration, Need U (100%).

A*M*E was born Aminata Kabba in Sierra Leone on 13 December, 1994. She moved to Lewisham, London after her mother’s hair salon burned down, and life in her hometown became too dangerous. She formed her own girl group, Independent Girls, in the school playground. From that age, she knew she wanted to pursue a career as a solo artist.

As a teenager, she joined her school choir Vocalize - performing multiple renditions of songs such as Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music” and Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River”.
She began working with producer Andy Gilbert on a number of tracks, which were sent to multiple A&Rs and labels. Some of these continue to be performed today by Vocalize, co-incidentally.
She then went on to meet MNEK in 2011, and wrote multiple songs with him - which include “Stacey”, “Hold Me Back” and her very first single, “City Lights”. These soon caught the attention of Gary Barlow, who subsequently signed her to his ex-label Future Records in June 2011.

A*M*E spent the majority of 2011 recording for her debut album with high-profile producers such as Quiz & Larossi, Rami Yacoub and Carl Falk.
“City Lights” featuring Bartoven, her first viral single, was released in January 2012.
