For any TikTok newbies, what is it that attracted you to the platform and what is it that you love most about it?
I saw so many hilarious videos on there, that I wanted to be one of this creators that made other people laugh. I love that it gives random people a chance to have a following if they actually deserve it.
Q: What has been your favourite dance or trend recently?A: I really like the dance to the song “Geek’d Up’ because the dance looks crazy! However I have no dancing skills in my body so would never be able to recreate it!
TikTok is famous for sending sounds / songs viral on there, which 5 tracks do you recommend we add to our playlist?
1: Address it
2: Geek’d Up - Bhad Babie (ft Lil Baby)
3: TKN- ROSALÍA (Ft Travis Scott)
4: Roses - SAINT JHN
5: After Party - Don Toliver
There's a real community feel within the app, which other creators should we check out and why?
My favourite creator currently is probably this guy named “DanielJGreen99”. He does funny skits and his Scottish accent makes his content even better! I also like “Maisielousmith”, she is better known for playing Tiffany in EastEnders but her content on TikTok is also class! Finally, my friend “JermaineKC” makes great content and is really underrated and deserves to be noticed more! What can we expect to see from you in the future?
Nothing concrete, hopefully more enjoyable content for my audience and to do more live streams as I love doing them! I also want to try and build my portfolio on Instagram so would love to make good content on every platform possible! Finally, which is your favourite TikTok you've created so far and why?
A lot of my content is very subjective if you enjoy it or not hahah. However my favourite video I uploaded that I could actually share was probably this one simply because it was a quick funny idea I had and my natural reaction makes me laugh when I watch it back!
