Two famous Nigerian Afrobeats singers, Ahmed Ololade, professionally known as Asake and Daniel Benson, popularly known as BNXN, have been chosen by YouTube as recipients of its 2023 YouTubeBlack Voices creators and artist cohorts.

Announcing this in a statement on Tuesday, the Managing Director of Emerging Markets, YouTube EMEA, Alex Okosi, explained that the initiative was a follow-up to a global multi year commitment made in 2020.

Through the campaign, YouTube will give creators and the African creative sector, respectively, $20,000 and $50,000 as seed funding through the 2023 #YouTubeBlack Voices creators and artist cohorts.
