Mtenje urged Malawians who are trying to have more followers on Tiktok to always work hard and have passion about it.
“If you want to have more followers on Tiktok you should work hard and be passionate about it.

Mtenje said she is always inspired by a young South African Tiktoker Witney and wants to be more than like her in future.
She thanked all people who have been supporting her saying without them she would not be where she is today.
“Let me thank those who have been supporting me. For sure, without your support, I would not be where I am today. Continue giving me support for me to grow,” she said.
Tiktok is a social media platform used to create, share and discover short videos. The app is mostly used by the young as an outlet to express themselves through dancing, singing, comedy and lip syncing. It allows users to create and share videos across the world through the smart phones.
When the user reaches 800 followers, the app allows him or her to go live which helps him or her to get various gifts from the audience or followers such as money and many others. It also provides an opportunity to collaborate with the companies who pay the Tiktok user so as they advertise their new products.
