TikTok Aims to Give Creators in Sub-Saharan Africa the Recognition they Deserve        

Creators from across sub-Saharan Africa recently gathered at the Mövenpick Hotel and Residences in Nairobi, Kenya following an eight-day long competitive voting process on TikTok. At the inaugural awards, the African TikTok creators were crowned among the Top Creators and Top Creator Runner Ups. The ceremony was for the recognition and awarding of content creators across sub-Saharan Africa for the content and creativity that they put in their work in 2022. TikTok’s content programming lead, sub-Saharan Africa, Boniswa Sidwaba, said the award ceremony is TikTok’s way of shining a light and recognising storytellers, their creativity and the positive impact that all creators bring to the TikTok community.


We are committed to Africa

Unlike many global publications, for nearly a decade we have been committed to showing a complete picture of Africa – not just a single story.  Offended by one-sided coverage of wars, disasters and disease, the founders of Africa.com created a website that provides a balanced view of Africa – current events, business, arts & culture, travel, fashion, sports, information, development, and more.
