AMPS - African Music Promotion Society



The African Music Promotion Society (AMPS), a project of konexion USA, is a network of independent artists and entrepreneurs dedicated to amplifying the African voice across the continent and globally. As part of our commitment to community activism, we pledge to support environmental and other causes we believe in.
With tens of thousands of tracks uploaded to streaming platforms weekly, it has become a challenge for audiences to discover music and for independent artists to connect to new audiences. The mission of AMPS is to connect artists and audiences beyond borders. Here, we believe artists are people, not products.
Send us links of your new music videos for consideration to include in the best and most diversified curated African music playlist on YouTube (ampsafrica).
