Imagine one being surprised by their favourite celebrity for their birthday, Valentine’s Day or just about any other special occasion. That’s the brilliant opportunity that has been made possible by The Artist Marketplace, also known as AMP.
This innovative platform was created by Fidel Bonnah, a Law graduate who describes himself as ambitious and confident. Fidel also has a key interest in social enterprises and entrepreneurship. The Artist Marketplace first entered the scene in 2019. At that time, it only had UK fans and UK cultural icons on board to provide the shout-out service. Since then, the platform has expanded and now includes artists, poets, influencers, entertainers as well as songwriters from all over the world. They come from different genres of music and categories of entertainment. Currently, AMP operates from the Google campus in Shoreditch, London and due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the business operates completely online.
How it Works
