    TikTok tops Ghana, WhatsApp crowned King of Apps in Naija (PodBites Ep. 30)

    TikTok tops Ghana, WhatsApp crowned King of Apps in Naija (PodBites Ep. 30)

    TikTok is Ghana's most popular app as of June 1 while WhatsApp tops the list in Nigeria.
    Listen to find out who comes in at 2nd and 3rd  place.
    This source comes in from Tech Cabal, A reliable Tech Publisher in Africa.

    If this suggests anything, it definitely suggests that the culture is shifting in Ghana, where in normal circumstances, Facebook and Twitter have been the more popular apps in Ghana to be used for social media.

    In 2020, TikTok had 100s of 1000s of Ghanaians using it, but in 2022, it shows no signs of slowing down in terms of growth, market share and acquisition. 

    Where do you see TikTok in not only Ghana, but also Africa in the coming years?

Showcasing African Excellence

I love this podcast because it represents the best of Africa. For too long the media has been inundated with negative news about Africa, but this podcast champions, celebrates and showcases the best of the continent! And it’s really insightful and entertaining. Highly recommend!

efuastar ,

Nice, informative, a nice listen while learning

This was enjoyable, from the perspective of getting to know more about Ghana, through the eyes of its people.
Very relaxing; I found that the time passed by rather quickly.
I like the niche, too - I haven't heard of many people doing what he's doing in such a fun, interesting way. I like the unificatin and celebration of Ghanaian (and by extension, West African) culture.

BurjLass ,
