As of 2021, TikTok is the most followed social network in the world. Before that, mostly used by young people, Chinese-language platforms are becoming popular and welcoming various content creators for a growing audience. Now, many tiktokers have rubbed shoulders with fame, some reaching dizzying numbers of followers. Here are some reports of the Spaniards who are batting.
21-year-old young Benji Krol broke the score. With over 31 million people (31.4 million) following him on his TikTok account, he has become one of the most influential content creators in Spain. Before meeting celebrities, the Brazilian-Madridian posted videos on the platform just for personal entertainment. But Benji Krol quickly became a huge success on the app, creating a YouTube channel of the same name in the process. The young influencer is gaining traction on TikTok for everything from simple dances to lifestyle content. Diversity can also be found on his YouTube channel, where you can watch a variety of videos: cooking, fashion, challenges… Benji Krol also knows how to conquer hearts with his angelic face. However, the young man is no longer a heart as he shares his life with Jorge Garay from 2020. Benji and his partner (who is also a TikTok star) showed off the relationship on social networks in broad daylight.
