TikTok content creator, Felicia Osei has said that she sees herself primarily as a social media influencer before any other role she currently has.
Speaking on how she became a Tiktoker, the radio presenter stated that it all began during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.
“During the lockdown, the clubs and restaurants closed down so I had to do something and since I’m good at making people laugh, I hopped on the trend and here I am,” she said.
According to her, TikTok was more relatable as compared to the other social media platforms and that explains why that is her focus.
“I’m on Twitter and Instagram but I think TikTok was more relatable and I could connect better with my audience. I could do a video for them and they would comment on it. I could make instant videos on the comments they make. It was something I could really relate to and that’s why I joined TikTok,” she explained.
In an interview with King Kwaku Mensa on Showbiz University, the Onua FM Adwuma Adwuma host opined that she can be regarded as a social media influencer and entering that space has been a blessing to her.
“I am and have always been a social media influencer. I joined TikTok in 2020. It hasn’t been bad at all. For me, it has been nothing but a blessing because who I am today started from TikTok. It’s been very good for me,” she indicated.
Felicia Osei also mentioned the fact that she didn’t know that what she was doing would get her to where she is today.
“I believe very few people know where they are going when they start something. I am not part of those few people. I didn’t know I’d get here when I started doing funny videos. I knew I was just putting videos out there for people to laugh and relate to but what I got in return is something that blew my mind and everyone else’s. I didn’t know I’d get here,” she expressed.
Using the podcast platform, the Ghanaian female presenter highlighted the need to remain original.
“To be original, you need to be yourself. Look at the likes of Sarkodie, Shatta Wale and other original people. There are a lot of trends that come and go but if you are yourself, you never lose focus. So being myself has really helped me through this journey,” she concluded.
