While millennials are still mourning the death of Vine, Gen Z has stepped up and taken over TikTok to share their funniest videos. And if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, you’re missing out.
TikTok is the kind of app you initially download ironically, and then you find yourself spending hours and hours scrolling mindlessly through your feed. It’s that addictive. And that is why it’s been downloaded 1.2 billion times since its launch in 2017.
And of course, Arabs are amongst its biggest users, with a few amassing millions of followers already. If you’re ready to dive in to the world of Arab TikTok, we got you.
Whether it’s on her own or with her mom, Gina has taken over TikTok with her hilarious takes on Arab culture. Here’s a tip before you start scrolling through her page: turn down your volume, she’s just as loud as she is funny.
