How does TikTok decide who becomes its biggest star? The viral video app, which has more than 500 million users globally, isn’t the first you think of when you want to create content — there are plenty of other apps out there with more functions and features. TikTok has barely any editing tools, and it’s not even available in all countries (it’s banned in China and South Korea). So how do you get followers on this platform? Charli D’Amelio has taken over as TikTok’s biggest star. These are the 40 most popular creators on the viral video app.
#1 – Godson
Godson, who is one of TikTok’s biggest stars with a total of over 9 million followers, is most popular for his daredevil stunts. His channel consists mostly of jumping out from behind corners, tiptoeing across household objects, and smashing into things.
Most recently he scared viewers by throwing himself out of a 10th-floor window – to his dramatic delight. But there are more good jokes on Godson’s channel too. On Wednesday morning he shared a video in which he disguised himself as an elderly woman to fool people waiting for their train at West Ham tube station in London into giving him money.
The last time that Godson came under fire was when someone hacked into his account and started posting explicit content from his private life.
