Lost about what people are saying on TikTok? Confused about the meaning of Eseba? The class is in session.
No generation has popularised slang more than today’s generation or Generation Z, thanks to the rise of social media apps.
TikTok has become the go-to medium for influencers, and the vocabulary used on the network regularly goes viral, including the phrase “cheugy,” which Gen Z uses to mock millennial trends that are no longer relevant.
It’s also worth mentioning that these terms aren’t new terminology, despite the fact that TikTok has exposed them to a wider audience. Their origins, in reality, are far older. Just a new meaning is given to the words.
