Sierra Leonean-Born British Star Song Climbs To No.1 In The UK

AME

A.M.E  is an 18 year old Sierra Leonean-Born British Star, whose real name is Amy Kabba climbed no 1 in the chart with a song which she was featured by Duke Dumont (Duke Dumont’s track Need U (100%).

The singer refused to disclose who she’s dating at the moment saying just the fact her song climbed number one in Charts does not mean her relationship should be made public. So she has decided it’s her private life and should remain private!!! Hope paparrazzi’s have heard? And my fellow Entertainment Bloggers and media in general….Amy wants a private life, y’all get into ya head….Lmao

Sometimes I wish celebrities should be allowed not to put their personal lives in public, cos ometimes when they have minor misunderstanding which could be settled amicably, they can’t do this cos everyone is in involved and confusing them. This often leads to break up and plenty regrets and so much more.

I’ll bring you the news of a man who spent £90,000 after he was jilted by girlfriend…he started online dating and chatting with girls by text messages and so on….what a way to incur debts…not sure if it’s funny or not. Coming to you in a giffy.

AME
