Yes, Clubhouse might be taking over, but TikTok remains one of the most downloaded apps in the region—and for good reason.
With accounts amassing millions of followers, Arab TikTokers are making waves across the app, and they’re not just making baked feta pasta. They’re the reason Mohamed Ramadan’s ‘Bum Bum’ reached global recognition (the song now counts 216 million views on YouTube), Issam Najjar’s ‘Hadal Ahebek’ became a number one hit around the world, not to mention, they gave us the epic Nancy Ajram remix of ‘WAP’.
But it’s not just music that Arab TikTokers are putting on the spotlight, if there’s one thing they do best: it’s light-hearted, addictively relatable humour. Hilarious Arab parents memes, Ramadan and Eid jokes, and traditional dance parodies, they do it all.
If you’re looking to get familiar, here are 9 funniest Arab TikTokers to follow.
