Kenyan content creators have found creative ways to highlight and celebrate Kenya’s rich cultural heritage on TikTok, with communities beyond Kenya’s borders also contributing to the celebration.

TikTok creators use fashion, food, unique traditions, dance, and natural attraction sites to help locals and tourists explore, appreciate, accept and celebrate vast differences across cultures that warm hearts and strengthen community bonds.

As we celebrate World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development on 21 May 2022, we would like to take a moment to spotlight a few TikTok content creators who have dedicated their time to making you appreciate our beautiful world filled with diversity.

Tribes and sub-tribes

Bwakalidavid has dedicated his account to unravelling and showcasing beauty, tribe and dance cultural aspects. He is helping Kenyans and the world learn about diverse tribes and sub-tribes that exist in the country, going the extra mile to place cultural background songs that bring the message home. This creator also brings to light interesting historical facts, not only about Kenya but also about Africa too.
