Folayang gives in to TikTok craze

Do not be surprised if you see former ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard “Landslide” Folayang on the popular social media app TikTok.

The ONE Championship pioneer has joined the craze amid the COVID-19 pandemic that has taken the world by its neck. 

The Home Of Martial Arts also opened up its own official account, where they show the lighter side of the athletes with funny videos and memes. 

“With what’s happening now, people need some entertainment to pass time and that’s what we’ve been getting from this app, especially since we’re all at home now,” Folayang said. 

Through the app, Folayang believes he can tap into his creative side while also finding new ways to bond with his family.

“I like how you’re able to edit the subject and put different features in it. It’s suitable for all ages,” Folayang said. 

“It’s super entertaining for people doing it and people watching it. It’s another way to release stress, since everyone has been really worried about the threat of the coronavirus.

“And since we are on a lockdown, we have a lot of time for our family at our homes and we can use that to bond with the kids.”

Should this lockdown continue, expect Folayang – through his handle, @yahareigns –  to come up with more funny and interesting videos for his fans.

“I am maximizing my time during the quarantine period and it’s possible for me to make more TikTok videos. I see some of my teammates being enamored by it as well, like Joshua [Pacio] and Danny [Kingad], so maybe we can collaborate soon,” Folayang said. 

“If it brings joy to the people, then it’s always a good idea.”
