18-year-old A*M*E makes no secret of her ambition to become a huge pop star.

This face is going to be everywhere
Amy Kabba (A*M*E)

"This face is going to be everywhere," she said in a recent BBC interview. "When you wake up, in your newspaper, on your toothpaste."

Having moved from Sierra Leone aged eight, Amy Kabba's first involvement with music came when she joined the school choir.

Not long after, the Lewisham singer decided to "go solo". She began writing her own songs and promoting her work via her own magazine (cheekily titled The A*M*E).

She caught the unlikely attention of Gary Barlow - who signed her up to his label. She's already promised to write a "proper skanky tune" with the Take That legend.

Having toured with Jessie J and The Wanted she recently gave fans a hint of what's to come with her catchy single, Play The Game Boy.

A*M*E's already had a taste of chart success she craves - albeit, helping to write a track which went to No.1 in South Korea.
