When TikTok first went viral, everybody thought it was exclusive to the younger generations alone. But as the app has become a staple in entertainment all over the world, people of all ages are welcome to create and enjoy all types of content. 

Whether it’s quick educational videos you’re looking for or fun tips on how to get involved in the latest viral challenge, TikTok is an all-inclusive platform where adults can come as well to not only express themselves creatively but to be their authentic selves.

Here are some of our favourite ZAlebs over 30 years old who enjoy the app as much as the youngins, and create great content too. You won't regret checking them out; we promise. 

Pearl Thusi

The actress's most viral video yet has to be the "Hello Dezemba" video in which she dances to Dlala Mapanstula by TKZee. Is it even December if the video hasn't done the rounds on Mzansi social media yet?
