In an unexpected twist, the German government recently placed Kenyan TikTok sensation Nyako Pilot under the tax limelight. The government demanded that she declare the gifts received through the popular social media platform. Nyako, known for her bold and unfiltered content, revealed the ultimatum in a recent video where she displayed a clause from the demand letter.
“I’ve been given till November 30 to declare TikTok gifts to the (German) Government. How much gifts do I get? Another letter requires that I write how much I earn on TikTok everyday. From Monday to Sunday. This is a government letter that I have to send back.”Nyako said while holding up a clause of the demand letter to the screen.
Women Rep Intentions
