Khaby Lame , 22-year-old TikToker from Senegal who rose to fame by wordlessly fixing “life hacks” that didn’t initially work or simplifying what people do, wordlessly, has overtaken Charli D’Amelio in followers. He is now the most followed TikToker in the world.
The silent comedian has surpassed Charli D’Amelio who has held the record since March 2020.
He created his TikTok account due to boredom of being stuck indoors after losing his job as a factory worker at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He did not receive many views initially. His first videos were just ordinary, he watched videos, danced and used TikTok filters. His TikTok videos started going viral towards the end of 2020.
He currently has 143.1 Million followers on TikTok.
