"It's an honour to be recognized for the journey I have been on so far," said Chakanyuka in a statement seen by Greedysouth. He attended Mufakose 2 High School for his O'Level education from 2010 to 2013. He later crossed over for his A Levels to St. Georges College from 2014 to 2015. He also attended The University of Edinburgh where he earned a BSc in Medicinal & Biological Chemistry, Chemistry in 2020. "Special mention for those who supported me in high school Makomborero (Charity) & university - Mastercard Foundation both of which afforded me many challenging and enriching experiences, in equal measure and ultimately led me to my career at Procter & Gamble UK & Ireland," he says. "It is exciting and rewarding to grow and develop in a Company that truly values diversity and gives real responsibility from day one. I hope with this award I can inspire more young talent from Black heritage and Zimbabweans to realize their dreams and ensure nothing holds them back from achieving their full potential. Massive thanks to the people who nominated me!! Good luck to all of the finalists – really looking forward to seeing you all at the event at the end of September." He continues.

Chakanyuka is currently Customer Supply Chain Manager at Procter & Gamble UK & Ireland. Sophie Chandauka MBE, co-founder and chairman of the awards, who also works for Facebook’s parent company Meta, said the finalists are “recognized by industry leaders as individuals who are delivering extraordinary value, demonstrating relevance and criticality to some of the most systemically important global corporations following the cataclysmic events of 2020.

“Their works have been featured and celebrated in prestigious venues and festivals internationally including the BAFTAs, Cannes, Guggenheim Museum, Somerset House and The Africa Centre. Our entrepreneurs have ceased this moment to pitch for venture capital, digitize their businesses and compete in marketplaces that were previously impenetrable in the pre-George Floyd era.”
