TikTok, the video and music sharing social media app taking over the lives of those young and old, has been this year’s ultimate tool for connecting with the global communities. The app was initially released in 2016 but gained major popularity in 2019. With the rise in popularity came scrutiny, as creators of color and those not from Western countries found that their content and voices were being silenced, and often removed for no reason at all. More often than not, the popular dances, trends, and sounds came from the minds of the TikTok population who were then given little to no credit or attention for their creativity. And a year and a half after TikTok’s formal apology to the Black creators on their app, not much has changed.

Twenty twenty-one, however, saw Sierra Leoneans and Black TikTok creators take the app to greater measures than ever seen before. Sierra Leonean Tik Tokers, influencers, content creators, have in the last year embraced and use TikTok to create creative content. This article is about the Sierra Leonean Tik Tokers with the most creative content on Tik Tok based on my perspective and after watching Tik Tok Videos in the past year
