YouTube recently named its YouTube Black Voices Creator Class of 2022 and three Zimbabweans were named in the list from the UK. Cheryl Moyo, Petronella Kunzwa and Vee Kativhu are set to benefit from the fund which will see them working closely with YouTube over the coming year, and they'll receive dedicated partner support, seed funding invested into the development of their channels, and participation in an intensive development program that will focus on training in production, community engagement and wellbeing, followed by ongoing workshops and networking programs.

The fund was announced in 2020 and this is the second class of 135 beneficiaries across the globe. Last year's class of creators included musicians, beauty entrepreneurs, comedians, activists, poets, personal trainers and more. These creators went on to hit subscriber milestones, lead meaningful discussions related to Black life and culture, and pursue new businesses. In part of their statement, YouTube wrote:
