It's here, the list of the year! The FORBES AFRICA 30 Under 30 class of 2022 has been revealed! Who are this year's visionaries of change and catalysts of innovation? Collectively, they prove that being on the most-anticipated list on the continent has nothing to do with clout or commerce, but rather, for these young trailblazers, it is about ensuring that they represent not only their countries, but the Africa they want to serve. Celebrating its eighth edition, the list, this year, features the brightest under-30s who have taken the time to not only shine a light on the issues plaguing Africa’s growth in a pandemic era but also work towards shifting the narrative, one tiny, tenacious step at a time. Also in this issue, from young entrepreneurs to the continent's richest man taking big fertilizer orders from the EU, there's a slew of up-and-coming talent from Eritrea to Nigeria and Botswana that we profile in this issue, as also focus on Namibia and Zambia. Seek out this must-have issue on Africa's leaders of tomorrow, today!
