In recent years, TikTok has taken Nigeria by storm, providing a platform for creatives to showcase their talents and connect with a vast audience. From music, and comedy to live streams.

The app’s popularity has given rise to a new generation of influencers, musicians, entertainers, and content creators who are redefining the entertainment industry.

Among these talented individuals is Lagos State-born Habeeb Hamzat popularly known as Peller, a young TikToker who has taken the platform by storm with his authentic humor, creativity, and infectious personality.

19-year-old Peller’s journey on TikTok began in 2023, inspired by the likes of Kai Cenat who he has described as one of his top TikTokers and a major inspiration to him. Peller started creating content, going live, and streaming, quickly discovering his passion for making people laugh. His early days on the platform were marked by experimentation, honing his craft, and learning from his mistakes. However, it wasn’t long before his talent and dedication started to pay off.

He teamed up with fellow TikToker by the name of Elizabeth Aminata Amadu from Benin in Edo State, known as Jadrolita and Jarvis for her AI alter ego, noted for her robotic persona, dubbed the “TikTok AI robot.”
