The onset of the pandemic in 2020 was rough on everyone, but one platform benefited greatly from it. TikTok has become a sensation across the country and established itself as a staple in social entertainment, and these ZAlebs would not be left out of the wave. 

These are some of the celebrities you need to follow on TikTok ASAP. Seriously, their content is great! 

Sho Madjozi 

This list would be flawed if we didn’t start with Sho Madjozi, our little ray of sunshine. Of course Sho would be on TikTok, seeing as it agrees perfectly with her age and her colourful personality. 
Sho has explored the full potential of the app. From using it to share her music videos, to creating cute and silly content, to dance challenges where she can have fun and market her songs, the young performer is a TikTok connoisseur.

At a point you have to be honest. A masterclassss

Uncle Vinny 

Uncle Vinny is one of ZAlebville's newest faces, and he owes it all to TikTok. The 19 year-old first got famous when his Uncle Vinny Challenge went viral on the platform. 
He has since been added to the list of Amapiano entertainers, even gracing the Amapiano Festival in Ghana in December 2021. He has clearly found his niche at a young age, and we can’t wait to see how far his career goes.

As a versatile entertainer, we had no doubt that Gigi would find a home on TikTok. But she did surprise Mzansi when she announced that she bagged a gig because of it. She was the host of the first African Music chart show, as created by TikTok South Africa. Consider the bag secured.

Pearl Thusi 

If you thought TikTok was the reserve of those in their twenties and younger, Pearl Thusi would like to invite you to think again. The actress creates different types of content on the app, but has been particularly enjoying having fun with different filters and effects, along with her bestie DJ Zinhle
It also does not hurt that she is a phenomenal actress and an all round beauty, as she also uses the platform to share short skits, fashion looks, hair care tips, and modeling shoots, among others. Is there anything she can’t do?

I still have like 20 of these in my drafts 😂

Thembi Seete 

Gomora star Thembi Seete will not be limited by restrictive stereotypes, and nowhere does she show this better than on TikTok. Although she films the occasional skit on the app, she especially enjoys participating in dance challenges. 
In fact, she recently broke the internet when one of her dance videos went viral. After she had been acting so long, it seems that all of Mzansi forgot that she was one of the original dance queens in the country, and the video was a nice reminder that Thembi’s still got it.

Cassper Nyovest

Fashion, comedy, money and boxing… it’s pretty easy to build a complete Cassper Nyovest profile just by following him on TikTok. It is where he goes to relax and let loose, and his content is always relatable. Well, except the “I’m filthy rich” content. That goes all the way over our heads. 
That is not to say he does not have a fun TikTok presence, because he does. But admittedly the best thing about following him on the site is that it gives a great glimpse into his life, especially for his fans who would like to know more about his hobbies and passions.

Maps Maponyane

Hold on to your seats, ladies; Mzansi’s heart throb Maps Maponyane is on TikTok too. He uses the platform for humour mostly, and if you like his beautiful smile, this is where to get your daily dose. 
The actor also uses the platform to create short, light videos for his brand ambassadorship, and yes king, secure the bag. Although his account is young, he has already surpassed many others in numbers, and we know you know why. Also, yes Maps. You are using TikTok right.
@mapsmaponyane Getting used to this Tik-Tok thing. Am I using it right? #matswelechallenge #infiniteclone ♬ Matswele - Kevin Suffocate
