Rewarding content producers for their work on YouTube is really important to us. When we launched local YouTube domains in Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana and Senegal, one of our goals was to help raise the profile of content producers from these countries.

From P-Square's Beautiful Onyinye, which generated over 1 million views in the first week of release, to Journal Rappé, Kulahappy and ThatIgboChick, African content producers are generating some of the most creatively diverse content on YouTube.
