We selected Webfluential as our partner in Africa to scale our offering to more African brands and agencies,” said Boniswa Sidwaba, TikTok Content Operations Manager, Africa.
Webfluential is already connected to 500m fans and followers across Africa, the partnership with TikTok extends the potential for brands to tap into the 1.2bn-strong African audience to further celebrate creativity and storytelling.
