India’s influencers still struggle years after TikTok ban

Rohtak (India) (AFP) – Choreographer Sahil Kumar found fame showcasing folk dances on TikTok, garnering more than 1.5 million followers, but his profile has been dormant since his last video four years ago, just before India’s decision to ban the platform. “Our sources of income stopped, and our connections were affected,” says the influencer, now gathering just under 94,000 people on Instagram.
