“TikTok Doesn’t Pay Anybody, Na We Dey Pay Each Other”: Young Man Gives Examples in Video

  • A young man has gone online to argue that TikTok makes much money from its users as against it paying them
  • The man added that the money people think they are being paid is actually from the coins people gift them
  • According to him, the beneficiary of gifted coins does not even get the total value the sender purchased them for

A young man has deconstructed the popular idea that TikTok pays content creators as he said that it is entirely false.

The man said the only way TikTokers make anything is through the coins people buy and gift them. He even added that in the process of gifting coins, TikTok makes the most.
