We sat down with Boni to find out more about him and what inspires his creativity...

What do you love most about TikTok

What I love most about TikTok is its ability to connect you with so many diverse content creators from your own country! Coming from Ireland, it’s been such an eye opener seeing the many talented content creators we have!

Why is TikTok right for your content?

TikTok is right for my content because it has an audience which my content is directed towards! With this, my content gets so many more views compared to any other platform!

What is your ultimate goal on TIkTok?

My ultimate goal on TikTok is to continue spreading knowledge and positivity on the platform to as many people as possible!!

Who do you follow on TikTok and why? What is on your TikTok feed?

I follow people like @teachwithtadgh and @makeupbyjade_1 because these are Irish people I know personally who’ve I’ve watched grow with excellent content! On my TikTok feed itself, I have a lot of comedy and sports related tiktoks

What is your favourite TikTok you have made to date and why?

My favourite TikTok I’ve made is definitely my “Things people say to me because of my accent video”. I didn’t realise how great it was going to do, but when it took off, it really flew! It is that video that made me really begin to work more on my tiktok craft!
