Following YouTube's opening of submissions for the Black Voices Fund (BVF) Class of 2023, Kenyan artists and content producers now have an opportunity to enhance their careers.
The Ksh11 billion fund, according to a statement from the video streaming service dated June 20, is intended to promote Black ideas and experiences.
In order to provide Black innovators, artists, composers, and producers the tools they need to succeed on YouTube, we also wanted to personally support them.
The statement said, in part, "Our objective is to continue to promote and celebrate these creators as they demonstrate their brilliance and individuality throughout our platform."
The fund also aims to elevate real tales on YouTube and celebrate Black joy.
The deadline for applications is Friday, July 10, 2022.
How to Apply
Additionally, stage names must be provided by applicants.
The personal information of applicants, including their residences and physical locations, will be requested on a form. They have to be black artists.
