The 21year old creative from Italy is already anticipated to outstrip Charli Grace D’ Amelio and become the most followed TikToker in the world. She has 121.9Million followers and 9.7Billion post likes.
Most of TikTok entails dancing and lip syncing , with other creators exploring other possibilities to create different content. Khaby Lame stood out with his ”simplify’ ‘reaction’ clips. The former factory worker rapidly rose on the platform thanks to his ”life hacks” videos which seem to appeal to a big audience thanks to the relatability.
After the loss of his job in March 2020 during the start of the Corona Pandemic, he began creating TikTok videos. He now lives on brand deals and collaborations and of course TikTok’s creator funds. He is currently the second most followed TikToker in the world.
In an interview with The New York Times , Khabe Lame said that it’s his face and facial expressions that make people laugh. “It’s my face and my expressions which make people laugh,” His muted reactions, he said, are a “global language.”
His initial posts on TikTok are not the same as his current posts. He did a few TikTok challenges, including the Woah (feat. D3Mstreet) challenge.
According to Wikipedia Khaby is engaged to Zaira Nucci from Sciacca, since October 2020. Lame was born in Senegal on 9th March 2000 but has lived in Italy since he was one.
