The Wikipedia profile of Ghanaian famous Tiktoker, Asantewaa is currently on the list of pages to be deleted from the online encyclopedia. This is because her profile has been cited by one of the Wikipedia editors for deletion.
The Wikipedian argued that Asantewaa does not deserve to have a profile on the virtual encyclopedia because she does not have a career per se, a crucial requirement to merit one to be featured on Wiki.
“Being a tiktoker and winning a non-notable award is not enough to warrant a stand-alone article.” The Wikipedian further argued that all the sources cited in her current profile “are not independent of her and cannot be used to establish notability.”
Asantewaa with her birth name Martina Dwamena amassed followers on TikTok during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. She has 2.8 million followers on TikTok with 86.1 million likes on her videos. Her Wikipedia article was created on 6 October 2022.
Per Wikipedia’s Notability clauses, profiles or subjects featured “must be notable, or “worthy of notice”.“Determining notability does not necessarily depend on things such as fame, importance, or popularity—although those may enhance the acceptability of a subject that meets the guidelines explained below.”
