It seems like Cape Town-based dancers are dominating the platform, Gabriella Lewittion is one of South Africa’s biggest and most followed dancers on Tik Tok. Gabriella may be young but that’s not stopping this strong and ambitious girl! My advice, keep an eye out for miss Lewittion because who knows, she may be making some big deals in the future to come.
