The 26-year-old creative further stated that her ideas were greatly received by Tiktok users and that they would also incorporate them in their videos.
She added that in as much as the idea of Nairobi girls was something she introduced on Tiktok, TBT videos are what set her apart from other creators.
“It was a unique thing because I feel like the Nairobi girls videos I was doing, I started on Tiktok but eventually people picked the idea and spread it but the idea was originally mine.”

“I knew Nairobi girls’ narrative was easy for people to just get the sound and use, which was okay, but with TBT videos, I feel like that is what defined me,” she said.
