As a TikTok user, I saw this short-form video mobile app as a tool to maintain our sensibility and wit while we are in quarantine caused by this global pandemic, COVID-19. Because it’s not only ordinary people who are feeling the impact of this pandemic, even celebrities are affected by this.
COVID-19 doesn’t care who you are. Rich or poor; celebrity or not; public and private workers; and even our frontliners are fighting against one common enemy, COVID-19.
Let’s take a break from all the negative news and I’ll share you 10 popular celebrities, in no particular oder, who are on TikTok and are using this platform to fight stress and boredom during these difficult times.
The man behind the many hit songs of Rivermaya, Rico Blanco, is now a certified TikToker!
Yeah! After learning how to vlog his activities on YouTube, Rico is now having a blast on TikTok.
That rockstar Rico, you won’t believe is now dancing to the trending tune of Like That, La la la la, Don’t Start Now, and Sunday Best (with matching choreos) in front of his 399.6K followers on TikTok!
Yes, sir! That’s Rico Blanco!
Another singer and performer has joined TikTok in the person of Yeng Constantino.
Also a newbie on vlogging, Yeng recently joined TikTok last April 7, 2020 and now has 18 videos on the short-form video mobile app.
The “Hawak-Kamay” singer currently has 414.8K followers sharing funny memes and moment videos, sometimes appearing with her husband together.
Ahead of Yeng’s, Filipina singer and actress Angeline Quinto joined TikTok last March 6. She posts funny videos that have received very well from her audience.
Her videos are mostly recorded from home since she is also affected by the quarantine.
Her account has 866.8K followers with 109 videos already published on the social media app.
A reputable musician and actor, Jong Cuenco joined TikTok 2 months ago. And just like everyone else, the renowned flutist is also using TikTok to fight boredom brought by the sanctions imposed by the government to prevent people from getting infected with the new virus.
Jong has 36.1K followers.
Comedian and versatile actor Jerald Napoles is also on TikTok under the account name @iamjnapoles.
Jerald shows off his talent in dubsmash together with his reel-and-real life partner, Kim Molina, who also has her own TikTok account.
Jerald enjoys 803K followers.
Since we’ve mentioned Kim, let’s place her next on the list.
Kim, known as @kimsmolina22 have more than 1M followers since she joined TikTok last February, before the Enhanced Community Quarantine was announced.
The jowa of @iamjnapoles has more than 3M Likes from all her 99 TikTok videos combined.
The couple is well-loved by their fans and their popular hit on TikTok is the “Bagsakan” cover video posted in two separate parts of their personal accounts.
One of my favorite TikTokers is the Heneral Luna actor, John Arcilla.
John started in theater acting way back in the 90s before the silverscreen bug took a bite on him. Since then, John played in theater, television, and cinema after cementing a reputation in the acting field. He also have some international role participations roll up on his filmography sleeves.
John joined TikTok ahead of his colleagues in 2018 back when TikTok was still starting to make waves in the country.
Today, John is enjoying the support of his 1.4M followers on TikTok app.
Jodi Sta. Maria
If I were to be able to give the TikTok Celebrity King and Queen award, I will hand them over to John Arcilla and Jodi Sta. Maria.
IMHO, Jodi deserves to be called the TikTok PH Celebrity Queen because even before COVID-19 and going back since 2018, pinatawa at pinasaya na tayo ni Jodi through her funny dubsmash na talaga namang kwela at patok sa mga TikTokers.
Jodi made her first TikTok appearance through this video https://vt.tiktok.com/k5X9Ys/ on July 16, 2018. After that, she continuously share fun parts of her life with her wacky and entertaining videos.
The pretty actress enjoys a 4.1M TikTok followers as of today, May 5, 2020.
When I said that even the rich and famous are not spared by this pandemic, it’s also the same with TikTok.
The beautiful and equally rich Heart Evangelista-Escudero displays her fashion styles and elegant looks on TikTok despite quarantine. Lockdown, quarantine, not even COVID-19 can stop Heart from showing her artistic and flamboyant side and she found Tiktok as the place to share her utmost beauty and style within.
Joining only in early February of this year, Heart already has 2.2M followers and she continues to dazzle her fans with her quirky and great video editing skills.
Not a fan of this guy, but Harry Roque – the Presidential Spokesperson, also joined the TikTok craze.
And yes, there are no exemptions. Even public servants like Roque are falling into the TikTok trap.
Roque’s account recently opened in March (with only 5 videos) and he already have 48.2K followers! Would you believe that?
Anyways, just to make a point that anybody can open and join TikTok.
TikTok welcomes everyone on this platform.
This is just the first part of our TikTok celebrity lists.
Will feature more next time!
